    Agree with above, but for a boosted application I would stay away from a two piece intake. I'm sure that doesn't pertain to the OP, just thought I would throw it out there.

    you can get the BBK SSi manifold that flows 18% better than the LS6 brand new for only $399 at new era performance.

    A lot of people are running 8psi or more through FAST intakes.

    The problem with the BBK is that it's metal and is an unnecessary heat sink.

    I had an aluminum Wein intake that got hot & stayed hot... Now I'm running a 90mm LS2 intake, but would rather have a FAST...

    True, but with the nitrous back fire burst plate underneath and the large amount of boring room made it the winner for my application. I just figured that I would throw it out there since most likely every one would only mention FAST or LS6. Just wanted to show that there are other options.

    I agree. I've seen pictures of FAST intakes blown apart from FI applications.

    Its VERY tall, but for $360 the Edelbrock proflo XT is a great intake.
    I'm running one in my 04 GTO and had to cut a hole and run a hood scoop...on an F-body you need to take a big notch out of the cowl.

    What issue of GMHTP is the intake comparisons in? Can you get the info on line? I would love to see what it is comparing to what etc as there is so much controversy out there on every intake. LS@, LS^, Typhoon, Fast, Weiand, you name it and everyone has a different opinion.

    if you have the $ FAST is the way to go...if not x2 on the bbk ssi. I really don't have any problems with heat soak. if you're going with minor mods an ls6 intake would be a good investment.
