They hyped it up like it was going to be amazing. Not so much. Id cut my hood for a hi ram before I ran that. If it Took off from 5k up I would have bought it. Even the gain from 6 to 6.5k isnt that impressive. Basically the standard for these style intakes.

The marketing will sell the intake. The "it made 50 plus horse more than the ls6" line will sell it. My first thought was but from where?

Happy New Year!

Anyone have any updates? New products? I'm still not interested in spending $3500 for a billet low profile intake..

unless you've maxed everything out and this is the last bit of hp you can get an intake is only going to give you like 15hp. Just up the boost!!

There's a point where the boost pressure is causing leaks on these plastic intakes after awhile. I've looked around and anything that fits under our stock hoods will suck <6k rpm compared to a stock ls6 intake. Even the holley hi ram only makes more power >5500 rpm. I'm hoping mine holds.

At what boost level do they tend to start leaking after a while?

They seem to leak from the big blower guys (ysi, f1, etc) running 20+ psi. I'm sure the more WOT romps you do the worse the situation gets. The short runners on the metal intakes seem lag quite a bit on <6k rpm flow. When you're talking about 1100-1200 rwhp what's losing 50-75 I guess in the mid range though.

If you want an intake designed to turn to 7500 AND fit under the cowl, your only option is a mid runner FAST

Does anyone know how much boost it can handle?

Apparently own ls7 intakes are not that strong.

Anything new worthwhile for ls3 heads that fits under a stock hood, costs less than 2k, handles more boost?

Maybe they didn't know what BOV is and why it must be there...

Ok, just kidding. Pretty clear why it did blow an intake when throttle was closed.
