Intake Manifolds?

This is a discussion on Intake Manifolds? within the External Engine forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; it's a matter of dollars per gains IMO. Sure the fast outflows the LS6 but how much are you willing ...

    it's a matter of dollars per gains IMO. Sure the fast outflows the LS6 but how much are you willing to spend for a couple tenths at best in the quarter? I chose an LS6 and spent the other $1000 dollars somewhere else.

    Yup. Thinking back, I would do a bunch of things differently. I will end up selling my FAST when the next build starts and going to an LS6 or alike.

    That's my thinking.

    Now that's the first time I've ever heard anyone with a Fast say they are going back to an LS6.
    Are you thinking forced induction??

    Yes. Been the plan for a few months now. I have enough for the F1 procharger/kit/FMIC, but not the shortblock/fuel requirements and the endless extras.

    Will not run the FAST, heard a few bad stories. Just isn't worth it.

    LS6 and fast intakes need coolant lines from the back of the heads.from all the threads I have seen,LS6 intakes can produce great power 475 hp+.time to sell those fast intakes wile people have tax return money to buy them.

    All kidding aside,,,,I'd carb the engine before I spent that kind of coin for a plastic intake.
    Thats not compatible with the t56 though right?

    Don't blame ya. I wouldn't run forced induction on a 2 piece intake either.
