He said the newer ones are built with more pieces and one of the gaskets is known for failing under pressure. Have you looked into this? It might not be something to worry about at your boost level because his goal for the project was to be "substantially faster than his 1000cc road course bike".
Awesome build BTW! Love all the fab work.
Newer camaro is a LS3, 6.2l, which is a different intake manifold than my ls6 that is on my 4.8...
I want to buy the gm crate engine 376 that is built for boost, ( ls3 ). I did get a new camaro intake manifold to have incase i get a ls3 (lsx 376)on down the road. The ls3 manifold wont work on a ls1 / ls6 / 4.8, 5.3 , and 6.0 iron blocks which have cathedral port heads.
I have a brand new Ls6 intake manifold on my 4.8
But either way i'd never boost more than 15 psi, either manifold i would be fine in my case.
Lsx 376 that i would like to have...
