^^^^^^This^^^^^^^ It's better than the OEM LS2 as it's made on old FAST tooling. Good stuff!

Equal, if not better, as it uses a larger 4-bolt TB

Which TB can you use? If any one, then jump on the LS6 manifold.

Fitech has a very interesting set up with that package. That should help a lot of folks with their swap projects.

Regarding composite intakes based on my flow testing, DynoJet testing, and observations over the last 20+ years for NA applications when parts are correctly matched for horsepower


From the very worse LS4 to best a ported MSD.


LS4 < LS1 < LS2 intake < LS6 < Dorman LS2 90mm < TBSS < ported Dorman LS2 < ported TBSS < LS6 TPiS/LPE 90mm < Fast 90 < ported LS6 TPiS/LPE 90mm < Fast 90 ported < Fast 92 < Fast 92 ported < Fast LSXR 102 < Fast LSXR 102 ported < LSXRT < LSXRT ported< MSD ported

Ported = by a skilled expert porter

LSXRT* rocks on right combination but doesn't fit a lot of stuff due to height. Often has horrible driveability unless tune is near perfect

MSD - unported sort of goes against the idea of 7000+ rpm combo

I called them and asked this question directly and was directly told it was NOT the Dorman intake. Doesn't mean it's not, but even after I questioned them on it they told me it was not the Dorman.

Can you get the intake by itself, if so, what is the price?


Thanks?

I think someone is telling you BS. That looks exactly like my Dorman.

I know! Exactly! Thats why I called them to ask. That was months ago after it first came out. Maybe the dude didn't know but he said it wasn't the Dorman.

Are there any pics of the top of the manifold? Dorman was molding some details in that might be possible to identify.
