    typhoon or ls6?

    I am going to get a cam soon (custom grind 230/230 620/615 111 lsa) keep my stock heads. Rest of my mods are in my sig.
    I have Been looking at the 85 MM typhoon intake a lot lately. You can get one on ebay for $359 complete and another $159 for a 85 mm TB. Not a bad deal. They say they flow better than the ls6. Any opinions on what to buy and why? I think the Fast 90/90 is over priced and I really don't think I need one.

    I'm going to make sure I watch this thread since I'm planning an intake swap this winter. I've never even heard of typhoon.

    They are still pretty unsure about the Typhoon on LS1Tech from what I've read. I'd keep an eye on the new Weiand intake. http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=807431 Of those two I'd go LS6 tho.

    I am curious about the Typhoon myself. It sounds like a good flowing piece. I would like to see some real dyno numbers from some real people.

    X2 i've read a lot of mixed reviews. I would stay away from it. Go with a used LS6, and if you want to upgrade later you can easily sell it for just as much as you paid it for.
