    not even close, the 2000+ ls1 f bods have the ls6 manifolds which may net 3 more hp than the ls1 manifolds where as Long tubes net around 20 RWHP

    The cars that have a LS6 manifold have a smaller cam compared to the LS1 manifold w/ a bigger cam.

    There was an article in Chp mag awhile back comaring manifold and different header combos. The ls6 did flow better and did pick up some hp over the stock 98-99 ls1 manifolds. Is it worth it no its not just pick up some headers and do it right the first time.

    but in my climate where everything is damp and metal rusts, i would have to go for stainles long tubes, and those are bigger than my wallet, and ive heard the other long tubes dont last but a few years(4-7) depending on weather and other variables

    Save up for stainless. That's what I'm doing. Coated ones don't last around here.

    The ls6 is the engine in the c5 zo6. 00-02 cars have some of their parts on the ls1. the ls1 just doesnt flow as well as the ls6 manifold.

    The metal contraption that collects exhaust gases from the exhaust ports. The LS6 manifold is the one that comes one the LS6 engine. The LS1 manifold is the one that comes on the LS1.
