CAI Questions

I know this may be beat to death, if so please just understand I am a Noob to the GTO world. I have been doing some searching and trying to find out as much as possible. I wanted to know what the major differences are between the intakes for the 5.7 LS1 intake and those for the LS2 6.0. From the looks of alot of them, they seem the same. What am I missing?

Ahh, Ok. So you'd be restricting the car by using the other Intake

Yep, I stock the K&N for 239.00! Hell of a difference, and it's a really simple install.

When I went out and bought the New-Era intake, I was very disappointed with the quality. So I bought the Lingenefelter intake, I was very happy with the quality and set-up and performance. The one draw back was it used the stock tube, which had the flex ribbing in it.

I went to TurboHoses in Dublin California and bet with the owner. He hand made an intake for me that utilizes the Lingenefelter heat shield. The new intake tube is approx. 4 inches in diameter (polished), he repositioned the MAF sensor, added a velocity stack (which goes from 6 inches to 4 inches) and a new air filter that has a cone center. The results...a freakin sweet intake...with a very noticeable increase in throttle response and all around power.
