    Its worth it, its one of the better bolt on mods.

    You aren't going to notice a huge difference with a stock motor, 10-15 RWHP, probably closer to 10 with you being stock. As you add mods, cam, headers etc., the benefits of the LS6 intake increase.

    so even though it is a stock ls6 intake from gm and not one from slp etc etc etc..... i will still receive gains. will it also bolt directly up to my car without any modifications? what if i also throw a ported and polished throttle body. that should help as well correct? thanks for the help y2k

    Its the same intake whether its from GM or SLP. You will see gains.

    You will have to remove the EGR, get a blockoff plate for the passenger manifold and will be throwing an SES code for the EGR, but none of that is really anything to worry about. The blockoff plate is less than $5 and Thunder racing has them I believe.

    The ported and polished TB is another good mod to do IMO

    no difference in the one from GM vs. SLP You will either need to get different coolant lines that run under the LS6 intake - or do a little grinding on the bottom of the intake to have the stock lines fit. And yes a P&P TB will help too.

    SLP offers one with an EGR connection for 98-00 models. You can get that one if you don't want to remove your EGR and throw a code. Or get the one without EGR and tune it out. The SLP ones w/ EGR run for around $500 or so. I've seen used LS6 intakes on ebay for as low as $250. I'm looking to do the same thing to my Hawk. Those 01-02 guys are lucky bastards, they can save their money for other things.

    You have 2 choices, buy the new coolant lines and plugs, $40 or take your existing one and a pipe cutter and make your own, which I did.

    When you remove your old coolant line, all 4 plugs will have a seal on them. You can remove them by hand and use them with the 4 new plugs you are about to order.
