    Just get the Intake, and use your stock TB. You can port and polish it and it will work great.

    No the MAF will work fine.

    Pass on the throttle body, it won't even work on your car.

    Yeah but there is no need to get the New TB its probly the same one that his car came with stock.. Save the cash and port your Tb.

    I got the years mixed up. His being a 2000 will work with the 2004 GTO throttle body. The 98-99 cars will not work.

    Throttle body cams are different. Just bolting one up will leave the throttle partially open.

    yes, you can remove the EGR on 98-00 cars and they will still run.

    yes, the GTO have the LS6 valley cover. doesn't matter, the PCV still hooks to the neck of the intake in the same place. what does matter is the coolant lines. the LS1 have coolant lines running under the intake. with the LS6 they use blockoffs for the rear coolant holes and only have a crossover line in the front.

    you can see it here in this pic

    it's not needed. you just need to remove the ribs off the bottom of the intake to clear the LS1 lines.

    hate to thread jack but what exactly do i have to modify/change/use for parts to put a ls6 on my 99 t/a.. i thougth i remember reading someplace you have to block somethign off, or a sensor, or do something other than just bolt the bitch on.... thanks

    anyone have the part number for the ls6 intake that would go on my car the easiest if there are any difference in ls6 intakes?? best place to buy one from... cheapest place to get one?? anyone have one?!?!?! lmao

    thanks again

    The only you need to change it the EGR setup. Other than the SLP LS6 intake (which is modified to accept EGR), the LS6 intake has no provisions for the EGR. The manifold is literally a direct swap, and an easy one at that. You will need to remove the EGR and install block off plates on the exhaust manifolds/headers. Buy the coolant crossovers designed for the LS6 manifold - don't crush/bend the stockers and grind on the intake.

    Yeah, the SLP modified LS6 intakes are quite expensive, like $200-$250 more than a used LS6 intake. Used SLPs are VERY rare.
