OP here...I haven't looked at this thread in a long time. I lost interest in a reproduction ls2 intake when I found a used fast 78. At that time, I talked with dorman, and they said it was almost ready for production. That's been almost two years

This really has my gears turning again. I wonder if I would gain anything with the dorman ls2 intake/90mm tb vs my old fast 78/78mm tb

I'm glad you posted the thread. Hopefully, we will see Dorman's LS2 soon. I want one and I have friends that want one. These will sell provided they did a quality product.

I think the Dorman LS2 90mm TB & intake should gain power vs the Fast 78, provided the engine can use the extra air flow. An LS6 with a TPiS 90mm snout gains power vs a stock 75/78mm LS6 intake.

How much is gained and if it is worth while will depend on how mod'd your engine is and how much your willing to spend to get the gain.

Guess I can wait another 2 weeks, hope they don't cut corners releasing the 1st batch and that they have enough to fulfill orders for the anxiously awaiting forum members.

That's great to hear. I'm definitely very interested in one of these, however I'm really interested to see a dyno test and how well it performs, specifically compared to a stock LS6 intake and a TBSS intake. I believe that it should outdo the LS6 intake, but it it can come even decently close to what the TBSS intake does (especially torque-wise) than I'd have no problem selling my TBSS intake and picking up one of these Dorman LS6's instead.

Well I pointed that same thing out back in September when an supposed employee of Dorman said it would be released by mid Oct. I tried tell everyone to be patient it could be a while , but some how some way that post got deleted. I'm confident that it will function with no problems, when it finally comes out next month as I reported earlier. As for performance that remains to be seen.

Well if I had to bet on it , right now my guess is that it will just slightly out perform a stock LS6 intake and fall short of the old FAST 78 . If it does better than this I will be pleasantly surprised , but I don't see it happening. But a fully ported Dorman LS2 may see some gains .

Depending on where the price of this comes in at; I could probably sell my fast 78 on ebay and with money from that sale, I could purchase this intake plus a 90mm gold blade throttle body for just about even money. Then I would have to pay for the xlink out of my pocket...

Just was on the phone with sales at Summit Racing and they have no information on these yet , they are not in there system at all. The Salesman said he would call Dorman tomorrow and see when they might be available thru Summit and possibly give me pricing.

I don't know what the price of this will be. But the dorman reproduction ls1/ls6 intake sells for around 290-300, I think the ls2 intake will be very close to that.

Such ignorance in the after comments here. I laughed my *** off. I'm going home to put my LS1 intakes back on all of my motors.

Wow, I've seen some bad information on the internet, but that has to be the worst I have seen. For starters the guy was talking about 2005 Camaro with an LS1!

I really enjoyed the long rant. Those are the kind of ducks you love to hear quaking in the pits and then lay there POS to waste.

If you guys pm me i will help you get your hands on the new intake. Itll take a while to get distribution in place so i can get you in touch with a seller quickly. We do not sell consumers direct.
