    LS6 swap/crossover tubes

    Is there any seals or gaskets under the crossover tube, or block offs that I will need to order for a LS6 intake swap. I have the tubes and block off from Texas Speed, but it did not come with any type of gaskets? I haven't started yet but need to order if necessary. Thanks

    yeah i had little black o-rings that i got with mine but i think you might be able to pull the o-rings off the stockers to put on the piping

    Or you can get a chisel and break away the fins where the existing lines are, saves you money from that kit and technically cools better than 01-02.

    Call Texas Speed back. When you buy the LS6 coolant pipes and block off's, they come in the GM packaging and already have the o-rings attached.
    I bought mine from Thunder Racing, and they come in the plastic GM packaging. All vendors get them this way. So if yours were not in the factory plastic packaging from GM, someone has opened them,,,which would explain the 0-rings missing,,,,although I don't know why.

    I'm assuming that when you recieved your coolant pipes they weren't in the GM packaging???
