    whatever you do, you need to get the air filter and/or the air pickup out of the engine compartment. I did a TON of experimentation and data collection to arrive at that conclusion.

    that's really the only way you're really going to actually get "cold air".

    I dont have a LS (rather a Gen 1 style EFI system) but the principle is the same.

    Right now I'm just running an air filter off the front of the TB on my 6.0, planning to spend some time this winter looking into pulling cold air from cowl hood or from in front of the radiator support... There are some pics on the web of guys using the cowl hood on Chevelles with their LS setups..

    very similar to mine except I relocated the battery to the trunk and then went to the passenger side.

    it's very effective. when I monitor the run data, I'm never over 10-15 deg over ambient even when in traffic on a hot day with the a/c on.

    whe driving at speed it's right at ambient temp.

    the other thing is (and I dont know about the LS engines) I had to retune the ECM to take full advantage of it... and it did make a huge difference.

    I have the spectre kit on my 71, I put it on my Christmas list last year and got it :)

    I really like it, even better than the pieces I have put together a little cheaper in the past. This kit is pretty nice.

    Whilst mine's not an LS application, I also used a Spectre CAI kit and I love it. Don't know whether it does anything for performance, but it met a need I had for a low profile air filter and I wanted something that was just different.

    I wonder if they merged or got bought out...


    I also have the spectre kit. I like it.
