Default Intake for ls1 ta

Im trying to determine what intake to go with on my build. Stock bottom end lq4. Ported polished 243s torquer 2 cam. 3600 stall. I am going to be spraying it with a 175 I have a lead on a spuer vick with an elbow and a lead one one with a 4150 accufab and a nitrous outlet puck system. I like the accufab but i noticed that water gets on top of the motor when it rains and it makes me worry with a 4150 being able to let water bypass it. I do not have a garage or covered parking for the car. Didnt want to go with a fast as they are a pretty penny. I also looked at the btr intake comong out but it looks like that intake will perform where i do not plan on pushing to.

There is also the bbk which is aluminum and can be ported, good for nitrous too since it's strong.

The BBK flows about as well as the LS6. Most NA apps don't use it as it does run warmer than a plastic intake. Turbo or supercharged apps like it as it won't burst under pressure. That is its only real advantage.

Like mentioned above. With the BBK being aluminum there is more possibility with porting and port matching to the cylinder head. A skilled Porter could probably make the BBK really shine. Seems lime a good choice for forced induction.

The Super Vic definitely got a lot of potential based on air flow, probably will need some porting to get the most out of it. Likewise, with the 4150.

Ideal cam selection with the Super Vic & 4150 may have a narrower LSA than the typical long runner LS manifold.
