Default 1998 coupe ls1 to ls6 intake swap

Good day everyone. I will be looking at doing a swap for an ls6 intake when my supercharger goes on. I was curious if there will be anything else I need to purchase to make this swap happen? I live in California so need to make sure SMOG is not affected and no codes are thrown.

Let me know your thoughts.

so i tried a search (which I tried before posting) and found the following things needed:

Coolant Pipe - #12568478 (1 required)
Rear Coolant Plug - #12562788 (2 required)

Would this be it?

Not worth the effort of swaping intakes for a FI application in my opinon.

You might try looking on Ebay for a kit... I got mine off a engine builder on there for $225 shipped... Took about 2 hrs for the install start to finish! My engine was pretty dirty!

but it is for those of us that cringe at altering the cooling system. you dont even have to remove all of the casting ribs. just the ones that interfere.

Just by a used one then.

Even better, buy a used one already modified for a LS1.

Not "needed" with FI but it will help power regardless.
