what do you guys think of this?

This is a discussion on what do you guys think of this? within the External Engine forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; what is your opinions on this compared to a ls6 or a fast intake? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/97-04...Q5fAccessories...

    not bad, I was looking at it to when I was shopping for an intake. It's kinda in between the LS6 and Fast intakes.

    I agree.

    LS1 < LS6 < BBK < FAST (On a NA motor)

    That intake is AL right? So therefore, it will be a heat sink over the composite intakes. I've heard good things about it, but I believe this is why most people go with the LS6 or FAST set-up.

    People going FI with big boost get the AL intake from what I've seen.

    Same here.

    I haven't seen anyone use a FAST on FI car. At least not a high psi FI car.

    I've seen a few, but that set-up doesn't seem to be in abundance.

    I've seen a few FAST intakes blown apart before.

    I have one and I love it. It does get warmer than the composite intakes, but it doesn't make any kind of noticeable difference in the way it performs. I am glad I chose it and installation was a breeze.

    I agree, that's why I'll be painting mine when I get it.

    Also to keep in mind, BBK is 85mm, fast is 102mm. Depends on far you plan on going with your car whether or not that matters.

    If it gets warmer, doesn't that mean your IAT's are warmer which DOES hinder performance? I personally wouldn't get something because it "looks cooler" (no pun intended)

    I still lol'd.

    According to my Jeep site on their 5.2/5.9, the IAT getting heat soaked causes a loss of a dyno proven 3-5 HP. Getting heat soaked leads to leaning out the A/F mix. For the Jeep, it just meant relocating it, but the concept works the same on any motor I would imagine.

    Correct...hotter air = less power = more chance of detonation due to lean mixture.

    That is why I got the PP 96mm intake with the 101mm TB.

    for a loss of 3-5 hp...id still choose the bbk because of the price....i dont plan on building a race car....just want a little more performance and to also make my engine bay look beautiful....this piece seems to be ideal for what i am trying to accomplish....i like the fast, but not the $800+ it costs....and it seems that the ls6 intakes have gone up in price lately.....some on ebay even more expensive than the bbk.

    Just to let you know, I bought my BBK SSI from New Era Performance for only $399. Not sure if they still have it for that price but imo you cant beat this manifold for that price. I really like that there is plenty of room for future porting and it has the burst plate on the bottom incase you run N2O and have a nasty backfire it wont ruin your intake/TB/etc.


    EDIT: I just checked the website and its $499 now. Im glad I bought mine when I did

    Most are anywhere from $469 and up. I figure even with the added heat, you may loose 5hp max and according to all dyno information I have read that would still put this intake on par or better than the LS6 gains and it looks better.

    It was about $700 with both the TB and the intake. The intake alone was around $484.

    The 3-5HP was from the sensor getting heat soaked, I would imagine it might be slightly higher when your whole intake is heat soaked. But, once again, minimal amounts more.

    The FAST setup is an investment, ~$1300 just for the intake and TB.

    If your going to re-do intake, I'd look into getting ride of the sh1it pvc system we have. LS6 valley cover in pics

    Also make sure to replace knock sensors.
