    Crap.

    Fitment is HORRIBLE!
    Apparently performs no better than an LS6 intake. That is IF you can get it installed.

    got a friend of mine with it. no fitment issues at all. the original design, there were plenty of issues. professional products fixed them and made a new design.

    well, it is all over the internet.

    but, for my friend, he changed the cam, under drive pulley, ported throttle body and intake at the same time.

    2000 WS6

    I tried to install this P.O.S. on my 00 WS6 and the fitment was horrible. The gaskets that are supplied are even worse. I took this thing on and off my car 3x's thinking I was installing it wrong or missing something but the machining of the manifold is just off and I could never get it to sit right.
    DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE...

    Just go with the LS6 or FAST...

    First off, this thread is over 3 years old....

    Not sure about the intake bolts, but the EGR can be tuned out. A lot of people remove all that EGR and AIR garbage and get it tuned for it.
