LE5 intake manifold on L61....thoughts??

Recommended Posts

ive been thinking of grabbing an LE5 intake mani for the sunfire, i know it needs tuning to work right, and possibly bigger injectors, but the gains would be worth it, what are your guys thoughts? i would post on JBO, but, for the most part J-Body owners are insane forum flamers LOL

Go for it. Yes you need a tune, yes you need injectors. I cant recall if you need an adapter plate for your tb. You should consider getting a bored out tb to try and match the LE5 manifold.

You make it sound like that prevents you from doing the manifold or something.

LSJ cant be done either, same basic reasons as the LE5 lol, and i didnt think it sounded like that, but i figure if im gonna buy an LE5 manifold, why not buy the whole engine and have some fun?

Too bad it still wouldnt have everything you need.. Throttle body adapter can be a pain to get.
