Left the ports with some ridges, figured they might actually provide a bit of "swirl" in the ports for low end gain, and used 600 grit to really smooth all blended areas. Smooth flow from inside Intake going into the heads.
Can always go back and clean up (flush the walls/seams) ports later - if I port the heads sometime in the future.

Looking forward to the results of the Dyno time like everyone else...

I dont think swirl applies to a dry manifold.
Also youll need the ls6 xover kit with plugs in the back if you do not already have them.
Thats all.
You may need to clearance where the throttle cam is also on WOT.

well I went to my tuners shop today and got the TA tuned. The shop is too backed up with work and couldn't get my car on the dyno. He did take time out to put a tune on it since I didn't feel comfortable diving it around after putting the new intake on with no tune. He said hopefully next week when they clear out some of the cars they are working on we can get it on the dyno and see how much hp gain I got. It is running strong though. Again, sorry for not getting the dyno numbers yet but I will post as soon as we get it done.

Can you pls send me a PM with the pieces/prices available to swap the DLS2 onto my 98 LS1.
Thanks! Mike

My mechanic installed the Dorman LS2 on my TA. A couple things he did was to put steel inserts on the larger rear mounting hole and larger front mounting hole. He also tapped the holes for mounting the fuel rail to accept M6 bolts. Dorman includes self tapping bolts for the fuel rail but that doesn't seem like the best solution if you ever remove the fuel rail. He also doubled up the washers on the intake mounting bolts to keep the plastic from deforming when torqued down.

Sorry but no. I have not had the chance to get it on the dyno. Had too many things like getting my roof done and a few others come up. I wish the tuner would have done it the first time I took it to him but they were backed up with work. I will see if I can get it done here real soon. I am also wanting to know the numbers and I also think it needs a better tune. It is running good but I think there is more power on the table not being squeezed out of it yet.

I can't seem to find this kit on the website? I def wanted to buy this kit.

While it may cost a little more than a drill bit, tap, and brass or ss nipple, it is another option available for those scared to tap the nylon.

$25 for the kit.
We will be adding them to the intake as an option preinstalled as well.

... If anyone is interested, have the TB & Intake for sale in the Parts for Sale section.
