I wouldn't bother with the Edelbrock intake on a street car. I would get a cam before you start looking at intake manifolds. On a stock cam car they aren't going to do much at all for you. After you get the cam then look at the FAST LSX-R.

I vote experimentation over speculation.

lol you'll spray it but you wont throw a cam in? So you want to sham wow your warranty? Come on pay to play dont scam.

The Rotofab or AFE intakes work well. The VCM OTR is really well built and another slightly more expensive option.

you need to undo it...just one 13mm bolt and slide it off to the side

I still dont see your point of scamming the dealership if something breaks. If you break it just man up and fix it. If you can't afford to fix it, then don't modify it.

x2, super easy.

The GM dealers these days won't honor your warranty for anything these days. I doubt you can sneak it past them if it is actually modified. They kept trying to refuse warranty on my car even before I put the headers and X pipe on (stock). Hence why I started to mod the car.... if the 100K warranty isn't gonna be honored who cares.
