    help installing ls6 intake!!

    Well this install is a hell of a lot harder then I imagined. How the hell do you unplug the back part of the intake. I know there are two hoses and a sencor but how in the hell do you remove the back plug thing?

    Already got that, makes it look a hell of a lot easier then it really is. Does anyone know about removing the brake booster? will this hurt anything, it says too but i don't want to fuck anything up.

    you wont hurt anything unplugging the brake booster, its just a vacuum. i cant remember what plug you are talking about, had someone helping me, maybe he got that one. watch out for the oil pressure sending unit, it will break 90% of the time and they are at least $65 plus a tool to get back in.

    I had to it by feel. It took a little time, swear words, and bloody knuckles, but I got it. Its just too hard to see it and GM didnt give enough length to the map sensor plug in.

    no, its an electrical connection. when you try pulling the intake forward, watch your hoses/wiring to make sure it doesnt pull on the plug because it will snap off. this is the only pic i have with mine off and my sensor is even out so u cant see it. but if you look up the right side of the motor in the back is where it will be. you can see the green plug? i believe that is what plugs into it

    Well needless to say I gave in!!!! After a few broken wires in the back and the oil sensor plug, I called a tow truck and had it "shipped" to my mechanic. $350.00 roughly is the cost for everything after it is said and done.........worst day of my life........another thing, about that picture above , it looks like my engine is in a hell of a lot deeper then yours..........just an observation........thanks for all the help guys, still feel free to leave comments or concerns..........signed~one pissed off trans am owner.......p.s. the wife isn't to happy either,

    ahh man sorry to hear that. Well look at the bright side, when your car comes back it will have an LS6 intake on it. How long is it going to take?

    I should get it back this afternoon. If you look at my signature, do you think I will notice a difference compared to the ls1 intake and all of the mods i have?

    when i did mine i also did long tube headers. i felt like i lost low end torque but gained a ton on the top end. gears and a stall will fix this, but if you want the full potential of the intake it will need to be tuned, preferably dyno tuned. im waiting til i add the stall, gears, and cam this winter, and then get mine tuned next spring. good luck and sorry it didnt work out for ya.

    absolutley your car should run just fine. A tune will maximize the benefits of your mods
