    LS6 coolant line kit, Ws6Store and Hawks 3rd Gen are the only place that I can find them and wow they've gone way up. $65, I paid $45 a yr ago.


    Scoggin Dickeys is saying that the part has been replaced with the LS3 Coolant Pipe Kit, Part # 12602548

    well the way to be sure is by part numbers but I don't have them, someone will chime in with those. The other way is if your intake has a hole on top behind the throttle body and a tube comes out that connects to the EGR valve it is possible is a LS1. Now there is some LS6 intakes that will have this tube as well but are most aftermarket i believe. Another way is to look at the bottom and if it has a v shaped that makes room for the coolant tubing.

    Now thinking of the coolant pipe... in front of the intake under the TB area you will see the coolant pipe. does it looks like this?

    If the pipe looks like the 1st 2 pics then you have an LS6. The 3rd one is a
    LS1 setup.

    Stock 2001-2002 F-body LS6 is 12561184.

    The Z06 LS6 is 12573572.

    The old LS1 intake with the EGR setup is 12560688.

    97-00 vette LS1 part # is 12556333



    Now I have a question is there a difference between the ZO6 LS6 Intake and the 00-01 F-body LS6 Intake?

    nope they are all the same whether it be the ls6 z06 intake, the 01-02 fbody intake or an 01-04 c5 intake.

    What about all the gaskets I will need.

    I need just the port seals and throttle bottle seals and anything else?

    yeah those sound good. Take a look at the small o ring around the MAP sensor if it looks torn replace it, it will cause leaks.
