    I don't think a FAST or Lingenfelter one will add enought to be worth the money, but there are used take-off LS6 manifolds around which you can fit and they will add about 5-7 HP at the rear wheels and you ought to be able to find one fairly cheap.

    I've seen people nearly giving away the LS6 manifold, I sold mine for $75.

    You might have to modify the EGR some but it is easy to do.

    I just purchased an LS6 for $300 and that is about the cheapest I've seen or heard of. I looked at ebay and the fourms for almost 2 months and never saw one under $300, but maybe that's just me? Rhino21149 you should have sold the manifold on ebay and made a lot more $ than $75.

    I agree. Go with the LS6 intake, they are good for between 10-15hp over the LS1 intake.
