    Kind of a 2 part question...

    About ready to start my LS swap as I got what I think to be everything I need.. but will still need to figure out a intake system..

    What you'll using and where you getting the air from for the intake system?

    Also how about exhaust? right now I have borla and most likely will keep but curious what sounds good on these engines and want to using v band clamps

    Thanks

    Ol' Miss.
    Ive been using the truck intake.

    My 3xhaust is 4"stainless to a 4" hooker max flow muffler, all v bands.

    Id stick with the borla youve got and make it work. If you have a cowl hood, truck intake will work fine. If not, better swap to a car intake

    I purchased aluminum pipe and couplings from a company on line called siliconeintakes.com. I ran my air supply to the drivers side.

    I plan on installing a cold air box that I have built. This will help keep the hot air from the engine bay out of the air charge. I also have a bird so the core support is a little different. You can't see it in the pic but there is a large hole from the factory just under that silver box on the drivers side.

    Spectre makes a ready to bolt on cold air intake. As for an intake, your choice but I wound seek out a low profile car intake

    If you put a "b" at the end of that part number in jegs (900134B) it drops the price $20

    I tried to buy this item from Summit last week and just got an email last night saying the manufacturer told them that this item will no longer be available.
