    Now witch one would be best for the LS6 intake ? if I go that route is the 85 too big ?

    Thanks.
    the ls6 intake has a 78mm....maybe at the most an 80mm opening so any bigger throttle body would just bottle neck air at the intake opening

    What he said...the intake is only as effective as it's smallest point, which is why I disagree with people when they say the stock MAF (78mm) is good to 600hp. I'm not disagreeing that it is good to that HP Rating, I'm just saying you're choking the intake with that small diameter with a 90mm Intake/TB.
