It's $600 cheaper than the LSX and has a 90mm opening. You have to do a little work (fuel rails, extend MAP sensor) to make it work... But that $600 could be the cost of a nitrous kit. ;)

Mine should be here by Friday. ;)

SCPC is selling all the parts you will need for around $820. That includes a Fast 90mm TB. You will have to Fab up a brackett for the throttle cable.

I hacked up my old ls1 intake and epoxied it to the intake.
I just need the TB now. I am waiting on funds for that.

The $820 includes the LS2 fuel rails, which price out at about $129 or so. I opted not to go with the fuel rails, since I'll probably upgrade to some billet units anyway. I'm just going to hack my LS1 rails to "get me by" until I'm ready to upgrade the fuel lines & rails.

I have 2 ls1/6 rails if any of you are interrested.
FWIW the ls2 rails are larger and they do hook up to the factory fuel line.

for 400 bucks and just a little bit of imagination you can have this set up for the same price u can get an ls6 set up. just have the same tb. i have a real good idea on what to do so if someone has an ls2 they can give me some dimensions on i can fab up a trottle body adaptor with a bracket built in. or if anyone wants to let me borrow one so i can do this in the machine shop. this would be a great project for my design class next semester at unc charlotte lol

Squintz Palladoris
10-22-2004, 12:50 PM

ok i need pics of the throttle body region, the length from the front bolts that hold the manifold down to the opening in the manifold where the TB goes, dimensions of the flat spot where the TB bolts up to. are the bottom holes the same as the ls1 tb? hmmm thats all i can think of right now if i think of anythign else ill let you know what im lookin for. ive got the bracket all figured out, it will look factory, when i get it made ill post some pics, as for the adaptor i drew something up but ill have to check all measurements first.

Yes you will need to get rid of the X coolant pipe and get the ls6 style coolant tube for the front and plug the rears.

and those intake ports look nasty, they easy to clean up with a dremil?

Yes, I spent about an hour or so cleaning them up with a dremel tool.

Here are som pics of My "Factory Looking" Brackett

alright, how does the ls1 tb fit. do the bottom holes line up or no? does the top hold on the tb for the ls1 clear the top of the opening on the ls2 intake? and how did u get that tb thing on there? epoxy?

No the bottom holes are spaced a little farther than the LS1. A FAST style TB blots right on. This intake has no advantage if you stick with the stock TB. If you want to use the stock TB than use the LS6 intake it will be just as good.

:stupid:

I am simply providing this info for those who want to make a brackett. I definately do not want a stock TB on mine. Hell I can probably put the stocker inside of this intake lol.

Here are some more pics

im torn, i dont nkow if i should get an ls2 or ls6 cause i see how you get better power then i see that you dont?! ahhh its making me go crazy lol. the ls2 does look good though and well it costs just about at much as an ls6 if i could get this idea to work out. so i have a bigger intake just incase i wanna go bigger in the future without wasting money. nate i know you said ls6 shoudl be good with a 232/234 but what is the limit where i should go 90mm? just if i have big cubes or what? and when you have a chance can you see from the front intake bolts to the front of the intake how far that is? the ls1 intake measured 4 inches if its much more than that i dont see it working too well

You wont be wasing your money on an LS6 setup as you can sell it when you decide to upgrade.

You should be able to get an LS6 intake and a ported TB for 450 or so.

my tb is ported right now thats on the ls1 intake. know anyone that wants to get rid of an ls6? like nate said i will keep my low end with the ls6 which in turn can turn better times seeing im in that range more i only see peak for a little
