    Typhoon vs Factory LS6?

    Anyboby have any feedback on the Typhoon intake, I can pick one up from Brothers Perf with Hi Flow fuel rails, braided crossover SS mounting hardware etc for the same price as a new "take off" LS6 manifold. Also any tips on the coolant lines at the rear,eg: block off vs crossover line?
    Thanks for any input

    its says it produced 17 more HP than the ls6 intake i have not heard anything bad about them. and they offer a 96mm fir the same price 399.99 much better than the fast for 850
    IMO

    Exactly what I was thinking, Aeromotive fuel rails and the braided crossover are over $250 alone, we all know LS6 manifolds work, I just was looking for any negatives for the aluminum. Thanks for the reply!

    Is this a Professional Products intake? If so i would return it, they make nothing but junk.

    just get the ls6 or save for a fast. you dont need fuel rail's your stock ones are just fine.

    treat stressful situation like a dog. if you can't eat or hump it, then piss on it and walk away.

    keep your foot in it,till you see god

    You might try the BBK SSi manifold. There is a big comparison between it, the ls6, and the fast 90 on ls1tech. It made more power than the ls6.

    You get what you pay for....

    The FAST will blow that intake out of the water.

    I would RUN away from the Typhoon intake. I chased my tail on a few of them, and now they are in the same boat as STS; I won't tune them.

    Thank you all so much for the feed back, the LS6 is probably the safest bet I suppose.

    Plus when it's time to "move up" you can sell it for what you bought it for
