    Induction Upgrade

    I'm looking to add these items to my primarily stock 2000 LS1 with Borla CB already installed: LID,FILTER,BELLOWS,TB & LS6 Intake,Timing advance module (PCM piggyback). Any feedback on which of these is not a good idea?

    You might want to consider the F.A.S.T. manifold instead of the LS6. Both are better than stock, but the F.A.S.T. is better than the LS6, but costs about twice as much. Same with the TB. If you go with the F.A.S.T. intake, you could get the 90mm Intake and match it with their 90mm TB, or stick with the closer to stock 74mm setup.

    Also, not too sure how good an idea a spark advance is on the LS1. Those MAFT translators (I guess that's what you meant) come close to the price of just getting the computer tuned, and aren't that far from the price of EFILive or HP Tuners.

    Other than that, sounds pretty ambitious but should be fun. Good luck.

    imo... instead of getting a aftermarket tb,port yours and use the money to buy a underdrive crank pulley just my 2 cents worth though. good luck bro !!

    Thanks guys for the advice and thanks for bringing up the underdrive pully cause I don't understand how it works if you don't have a supercharger. Please explain.
