    All of the LS6 intakes I've seen have come with the new gaskets.

    If not, just go down to your local auto parts store and order some, the LS6 ones are the same as the stock ones.

    You don't need new gaskets, you can use the ls1 gaskets.

    so you dont think there will be a problem using all the old gaskets, even for the coolant line?

    they are not gaskets they are rubber o-rings on the water lines and rubber gaskets on the intake,should be on the intake and waterlines already.

    easy swap did mine this past weekend took me 3hr.
    3 main things.
    1. unhook the vacume line from the brake booster(or you will break the oil pressure sender)
    2. cut 5 peices of 5/16 rubber fuel line at 1 inch. put 2 on the back 2 bolts passanger side and 3 on the back 3 drivers side(holds the bolts up to remove)
    3.lift the front of intake up and pull forward about 8 inches while turning the front twards the drivers side(reach around back pull off small air line unhook electric plug)then pull out guiding the brake booster line around oil sender
    also unclip the knock sensor clip from the drivers side rear of intake.
    also pull the black tape off the 2 clips that hold the knock sensor to the old water line and discard them.

    just another option you don't have to install the new lines you can grind the fins down to accomadate your current ones

    you already go the kit but just another option.
