    is an ls6 intake a good mod

    Is an ls6 intake a good intake to put on my 2000 ss? Or is there any other intake that is better? If so what intake and how much better is it? My car is completely stock but I plan to put lts pretty soon and later on cam and heads. If the ls6 intake is good should I port and polish my throttle body or get a different one? Thanks in advance!

    yes and porting your throttle body is a good idea as well. Shaner makes a nice piece.

    ls6 flows plenty on stock motors. to get the peak numbers out of heads/cam set up you might wanna go with a fast 92 set up if you have the coin. very pricey compared to a new or used ls6 intake. ported/polished tb will work well with ls6.

    How big should I port the tb? Should I port the intake too or is it big enough as it is?
    The reason I'm asking is because I might trade my ss wheels for an intake that came off an ls6

    i wouldnt worry about porting your TB ..get more mods ..since chances are you will move to a fast set up if you continue to mod your car.

    So will a fast setup flow a lot better than an ls6 and a ported tb? Because I've read somewhere on this sight something about them flowing about the same

    The fast combo really shines in cammed cars and will give you a good bump in hp over the ls6

    not even close...the fast 9x and 102lsxr flow much better...on top of that you will need a new tb for the 9x and 102lsxrs...so why spend 200 on getting your tb ported when once you go heads and cam..you will be running a bigger tb anyways

    you need a cam first to warrant a fast intake...the fast 90 and 92 are hard to find anymore..so the 102mm lsxr is about it

    Thanks for the help I really appreciate it do u think the ms2 with some pretty good heads,headers,full exhaust,and that fast setup with a good tune will be good with gas mileage?
