    LS1 intake and TB make a difference on 5.3?

    Hi all,
    Ok so i am getting a LS6 intake and ported TB for my 2000 Z28, my question is will the LS1 intake and stock TB that I take off make a difference in the performance of the 5.3 in my 01 Silverado? It'd be sweet to kill two birds with one stone..
    thanks!

    I am not sure dont take my word for it, but I dont think the intake would match up with the 5.3.

    The LS6 intake will fit on the 5.3. The problem is the LS6 intake is not tall enough for the throttle body to clear the accessories on the front of the engine.

    I heard the truck intake works great up to 5500rpm in a mild combo.it should produce better torque numbers than a ls1 intake.
