    When LS6 restricts hp???

    At what horsepower does the ls6 intake starts to become a restriction, I'm just wondering since I'm planning going 11's in the 1/4 mile.

    i would say somewhere around 500+

    many people have the LS6 on H/C cars. And some still run them on bigger cube motors. LS6 is a great factory design. ----If you have extra $$ go for the fast 90.

    You could run 11's with 600 RWHP.
    You could run 11's with 400 RWHP.

    What kinda power are you looking at??

    Have 342RWHP and hit 12.2 with a 20+ mph headwind... so on a good day I might be able to hit 11s... and I have the LS6 intake.. so it doesnt take all that much.

    You could easily make the power to go low 10's on an LS6 intake. Don't worry about it.
