    LS intake for proposed build..

    Just building my 6.0 in my head at the moment... so far..
    6.0 block - not sure if it will need bored but considering 30 over to be safe
    Stock new 6.6 forged crank
    Not sure on rods but forged I beams
    Pistons.. so far something short and forged - going for all motor 10-1+compression and pump gas
    Going efi - Holly terminator system me then likely.
    Cam.. not sure yet but going big and would like power to 6k rpm with ease
    So with that said it looks like a stock style LS6'ish intake would work, like the first pic but maybe I should consider the one in the 2nd pic as well? What do you guys think?

    Couple things
    1) if you're looking to stay all motor I would be looking more in the 11.0:1 to 11.5:1 area

    2) that speedmaster intake is not really a good choice as they have issues with heat soak and the fab intakes tend to like higher rpm rang I would save up a little bit more and go with the fast102 it's a proven intake and makes great power all threw the curve

    Thanks for the info and yes I will look into the FAST intake I know they are a bit pricey. Few people have said just get a TBSS intake, but those appear to be hard to find as of late. I knew 10:1 was fairly low compared to other builds these days, hell even factory ...but does anyone run like 12:1 on pump gas with these things? I know turbo's can be done for sort of cheap these days lol....but I wanna go all motor for my first LS build
