My interest continues to grow as does my ahem ahem.

Not clear what you mean when you said "However, NA applications have to see a benefit to this switch."

Hope to see something soon.

Simply meaning we need this thing to perform VERY WELL for our Naturally Aspirated clients as well. Thats a big portion of testing to come!

Some companies will skew and blur results to move product these days. That's the last goal we have in mind. I think the price point of ours will be very enticing, especially if these Stock LS6 intakes keep getting listed for $400+ on facebook sale forums LOL!

Bottom line, in my mind, will be partial performance, partial aesthetics. When the final revisions are done, I expect it to light up an engine bay. Now if someone calls us and says "Do I need to spend xxx.xx on the BTR intake? I already have an LS6." We will respond with brutal honesty. If ours outperforms an LS6 but a client's money is better spent on chassis, fueling, etc, we wont EVER upsell something that compromises a complete vehicle package. If we upsold parts like the drop shippers of the world, we wouldnt have the client base we do. Customer satisfaction and avoiding buyer's remorse are far more valuable than a few bucks in an upsell.





When all the nitrous guys 'splode the ls6's that are left....
Ours will still be here.
This was very well put, and is probably the reason I've yet to hear any bad press about you. Its comments like this that earns business, btw I'm here in Louisville.... so I'm pretty close to you.

Logan Here -

Much appreciated brother. We have our share of naysayers, but we treat them the same as our friends and clients. This industry is too small to treat people like crap. As my grandfather said "You meet the same people on the way up, that you'll see if you're on the way down." Brian's mantra is about building a community, not a cult.

Swing by the shop sometime also. We're only a short drive! Working on open house/track day for the season. We'll keep you posted.

Can't wait to hear how this intake performs under N/A. Seems like it'll be great for the forced induction guys/gals, but the design looks like it'll be completely different than anyone is currently running. Most curious to how the BTR intake responds to cruise/low air flow situations for big cam N/A motors.




Nice to see some new blood being pumped into the LS motors!!

Doing our best to eliminate intake air reversion in the plenum. Should do wonders for those situations. We'll keep you posted!

Any clearance issues with the ls1 water pump running a 102 throttle body on this intake?

Can anyone show evidence of a mass production Dual Plenum existing before Ron's?
Where did I say they made a LS intake ? Dual plenum is simply a type of design that has been around for decades...just because someone is applying it to a different engine doesnt suddenly make it new and unique to them as if they are the owners of it.

And you could equally say that Shearer is just copying Zac after he did his a year or two ago.

And a custom fabricated piece is hardly "mass produced"....

Shearers piece is of course very very nice...but still very very tall. So a very different market to what BTR would be aiming for as his looks to retain quite a low profile.

I think its great what your doing for the community Brian. Thank you for your efforts. The people that provide nothing for the community are the ones that talk smack...too common of a trend

I'm excited that us LS3 guys might actually have in intake that will show good gains over the stock intake. Now I just hope it will fit the C6 Vettes.

There are intakes out there for the ls3 with good gains. You just have to be willing to cam it to spin to 7500

Hey Logan, any new updates or Friday teasers to share?? I'm pretty sure that if all goes well with your testing my FAST 102 will be off and this new BTR intake will be taking it's place!!
