L83/ LT1 intake manifold/tb swap

Here’s a thread I made on the camaro forums about lt1 vs l86 intake.


well the msd intake is an expensive intake mani upgrade to the lt1.


so there’s lt1 < msd < ported msd

and the l86 intake mani did a better job than the ported msd




But who ported the MSD intake?  There have been cases where porting actually has hurt the MSD performance over stock, due to the person doing the porting not being good at what they do.  Now if it was a Mamo ported MSD, that's a different story.  


I have an MSD on my LS7 and I know I'm leaving a good 20 RWHP on the table not having Mamo port it - leaving another 15-20 RWHP more due to the stock TB (car has ported heads and a big cam, so it can make use of the extra airflow).
