    I know I rambled on a bit , but does that make sense?

    Install not that bad

    Installing the LS6 on my 2000 Z28 was not that bad. I found a new one on Ebay (with provisions) for around $300 (maybe less). Guy brought it from SLP and never installed. Gains of 20 WHP over the LS1 are reported above 5000 RPM. I could tell a difference when you let it wind pass 4000. I just passed an annual inspection in NC so EGR must be okay.

    Both Ways

    You can buy them with or without. I opted to keep the LS1 stock plumbing and not use the blank off plates. Some pictures on the SLP web site to give you a better idea and cost.

    You can shop around the board classifieds, EBay and check sponsor specials. I believe that SLP was recently selling new LS6 intakes for $379...well worth that IMO. The gains seem to be in the 8-12rwhp range over the LS1 intake and the LS6 can be installed with basic hand tools in a couple of hours. Just be careful of the small fittings at the back of the intake.

    I need to check prices, but have heard that the fast intake is nearly double the price ofthe ls-6. Looks like I need a throttle body too.

    On a scale of 5 with 5 being most difficult, installing an LS6 intake is about a 2. There is nothing hard about it. The trick you need to know, is unhook the hose from the master cylinder that goes to the back of the intake. If you don't unhook it, more than likely, you will brake your oil pressure sensor.

    On my previous Camaro, I went from 329 RWHP to 341 RWHP with nothing else changing. I was on stock heads/cam at the time as well. My only real mods at the time were long tubes. I compared my dyno graph from my LS1 intake to my dyno graph from my LS6 intake, and all the way up to 5000 RPMs, they run identical. Its above 5000 RPMs that the LS6 intake really kicks in.

    If you added an LS6 intake to an engine that already had long tubes and a cam, you would see probably gains of >15RWHP. You won't get more than 12-15RWHP gains on a stock LS1 by simply swapping the LS1 intake out for an LS6 intake. Its a good bolt on mod to do and something that becomes more beneficial with more mods.

    As far as the best place to find one, shop around the classifieds of all the LSx forums. You will find one in the $300 range, just be patient
