    LS6 Intake

    i just bought the ls6 intake for my car ans was wondering if i should get it ported before i put it on. I can get it done for a good price and im curious though if it is worth it. Would it make a difference at all?

    Porting the throttle body will just make it a smoother ride, and better throttle response.

    +1 no real power gains here. now if you run headers and maybe some cam to move some more air it maybe worth it. but stock just throw that bitch on and let it eat.

    little diff. IMO, remember the LS6 is a far better intake than the stocker to begin with.

    WITH A DREMEL TOOL AND A LITTLE JB WELD, FILL IN THE SLOT WITH JB AND SMOOTH OUT ALL THE RIDGES AND LINSE WITH THE DREMEL
    DRILL HOLES BACK IN THE WELD AND THEN I SMOOTHED IT ALL BY HAND WITH SOME FINE SAND PAPER
    I DIDNT REALLY POLISH IT NOT TO A MIRROR SHINE ANYWAY BUT IT IS SMOOTH AS HELL

    I would port it while its off and if its cheap, no harm no foul. Also I WOULD port the TB, I noticed a massive diff with my TB ported. Every car is diff but the ported TB was the last mod I did and by the SOTP feeling, it seems like my car gained a SOLID 10 hp out of it. I did some runs before the TB and some runs after the TB and everyone that has ridden in my car has noticed a gain. But like I said, some cars respond to mods diff.

    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!
