What intake are you using on this? I did some driving around town this weekend and my intake temps are just way too high (around 150 degrees), looks like a much better setup. @kask2_6.0

It's a modified corvette intake. They are pretty expensive but keep an eye out on ebay and sometimes you can come across a used one at decent price that just needs cleaning. Picked that one up for $250.

Yeah, that's an awful lot for a piece of plastic. I'll keep an eye out, thanks.

Needed a new project... LS3 soon!

Finally got around to fitting the strut braces. Had to make brackets to offset the firewall side of the oem braces up about 1” to clear the coils. With different coil mounting locations this wouldn’t have been an issue. May switch this up in the future.

I’ve been wanting to put those strut braces back in as well. I think it just makes good sense to have them in place.

You came up with a great idea here. I’ll be doing the same thing.

Thanks!
