    Swapping Intakes?

    My sis has an 02 Camaro and i have a 99 TA, well she is trading it and i was wanting the ls6 intake off of hers and was going to put my ls1 intake on her car. Im deleting my egr so im not worried about that, my ? is if i can swap our coolant tubes also so that the ls6 coolant tubes would be on my car and the ls1 tubes on her car, you get the idea. Any help/ideas appreciated. Thanks

    Believe the coolant pipe/plugs are interchangeable. The LS1 intake will need to be sealed at the EGR opening with an expansion plug and stick out to a potential buyer of her car.

    Well we all know theres that inexperienced person who will look right past it and never realize what just think it came stock like that. And salesman at the dealers usually are not that smart when it comes to engines and what not.

    Hopefully whoever ultimately buys the car will bring someone knowledgeable about F-bodies with them. If I knew nothing about Camaro's, bought an 02 that supposedly came with the LS6 intake, and didn't find out about the swap until later I'd be upset.

    I think she is going to trade it in at the dealership i work at so there wont be any issues with a salesman noticing it because they are all idiots. Plus they never even open the hood of the car, every used car that comes through gets a thorough inspection by me or another tech. If they do notice it while i am inspecting it then i well just order another ls6 intake to go on it and charge it to the used car department.
