    a 2000 corvette would have a LS1 intake so don't buy it!!!! A LS6 intake manifold is only on '01-'04 LS1 motors. So all '01-'02 f-bodies, '01-'04 'vettes and '04 GTO. In the picture the LS1 intake is on the left (curved bottom) and the LS6 is on the right. (flat bottom)

    As far as the egr - trash it. There is no reason to keep it. All you need is a small block off plate to cover the pipe coming off the passenger side header. It will throw a code - so get the code tuned out or just live with it. Also you will either need the LS6 coolant lines or grind a little on the bottom of the LS6 to make your existing coolant lines fit.

    PN 12561184 is an LS6 intake, same PN that came on my car. Don't know about the claim it being off a 00 vette with zero miles on it though, thinking the 2K Z06? vette had a different PN for the LS6, and that pic looks like it's seen some mileage IMO. Be careful....

    Yea def be careful man, i'm surrently in the process of trying to get my money back from a guy who sent me an ls1 intake instead of an ls6. Big headache

    Just remember, the ls6 has a FLAT bottom, the ls1 has a hump on the bottom. That ebay pic i can't tell if the bottoms flat or not. I would ask for a better pic.
