CMNT, are you saying a modified intake is not needed in the Goat or the LS6?CMNTMXR57 said:Unless you're running a heads/cam (and even then it isn't necessary) and/or oversized motor, a Supercharger, or Turbo(s)...YOU DO NOT NEED A REPLACEMENT INTAKE!!!
The LS6 intake outflows the heads you have on their now. The TB on the intake outflows the intake. You're not going to see an appreciable gain vs. dollars spent.
Why do you think there are only a handful of them on the market? Because there isn't a market for them! The stocker is that good for pretty much most needs. Heck, I'm running an LS6 intake on a heads and cammed motor, because the FAST unit isn't going to net me much more for the cost.
Thanks. Now I think I understand.CMNTMXR57 said:We have the LS6 intake on our cars from the factory. Unless you build something that is out of this world, or are force feeding it like a Tornado, the LS6 intake *FOR THE MONEY* can't be beat.
A F.A.S.T. intake depending on what size TB, will run you $800 - 900. On a stock headed, stock cammed, stock internals LS1/6 motor, the gains will be negligble. On a heads and cam motor, you may see 5-10rwhp, if you're lucky. MOst of us here fall into the earlier category. As such, if you're gonna spend that level of money, just get a cam installed, some tuning, and you'll get infinitely more for your dollar.
I'm not down on these intakes, just when doing a cost vs. benefit, their gains don't add up.
