    but what i read was if you are doing the LS1 to LS6 swap you need to either re-plumb with LS6 hardware, or grind the bottom of the intake and re-use the LS1 plumbing.

    The way I see it is, if you are grinding the bottom you don't need any parts at all, and if you are like me you can look for an EGR version of the LS6 intake, like a used SLP or GM intake.

    I haven't done the swap myself, my goat has the ls6 intake from the factory.
    Nope, can't say I remember having one. Just rhe EGR valve itself, computer connection, line to the intake, and line to the exhaust.
