Default Question about 3 Bar Map sensor for ls6 intake

looking To see if there is a 3 bar Map sensor that will directly bolt on to the ls6 intake.

Ive seen a couple threads were people are taping the intake with a fitting and running a piece of hose Iím just not trying to go that route unless I completely have to, Iíd rather have plug and play.

any input would be helpful Iíve done a few searches but everything i see is from old threads.

I found this one and was just getting ready to post here to see if anyone has used it and if it's any good. DSteck isn't making his 2.5 map sensors anymore and I need a sensor.

I recently converted to a 3 bar OS. ACDelco 3bar MAP Sensor part number 12615136 is the one I use. Works great and personally would not use anything other than ACDelco for sensors. Had to use a file on the map sensor to fit. Doesn’t effect anything. The good thing about that is you don’t have to mess with your intake. And if you use HP tuners it will update all settings properly for this map sensor.
