    Steam tubes

    Is their a way to eliminate the steam tubes on a LS1? I see that TPIS sells block of plates for the rear, but what about the front? Dosent the front tubes go to the throttle body? If so, should I find a way to block the fronts off if I disconect the throttle body coolent hose?

    I do plan on a Ls6 intake in the future.

    you have to have the coolant line crossover. it's there to remove air pockets that would otherwise collect in those areas. the rear block offs are for the LS6 intake. but, with some minor clearancing underneath the LS6 intake, you can keep the LS1 lines.

    You don't want to do that. Easy enough to bypass the TB but the steam reliefs are important.
