Intake Swap

I'm looking for more info. I've looked at the link LS1/LS6 intake swap. I'm not sure if this is a straight drop with the addition of the fuel rail and larger diameter throttle body. I'm not wanting to be chopping parts and fabricating pieces if I don't have to. I've seen a video on youtube ( LS2 intake manifold with tb swap on LS4 - YouTube ) that shows an LS2 intake being used. I spoke to someone at ChiX performance in Roswell GA today he also told me that I would need to change the intake in order to see the potential the LS4 has. He also pointed out that I would need to disable DoD due to a large number of cam failures that most cars have been experiencing. Just a little point in the right direction before I start spending money and investing time.

There's an intake valley cover you can get on Ebay (don't remember what brand) that disables the DoD, and also facilitates running LSx intakes without having to modify them. I think it ran around $225.

That's fine, but, wow! I will definitely look at those control arms, maybe the Bilstein also, but I enjoy the KYB's. The ZZP rear trailing arms is probably my next suspension mod.

By the time you spend all of the $$$ for all of the upgrades to your 3.5, you could have just bought an SS! :-)

thats not a impala, its a chevy SS, nothing to do with a impala.
if you going to trade in your car why bother doing that huge list of modification you have planned? seem pointless.

As far as I know, there is no such thing as a 2015 "Impala SS"...

I'm assuming that you mean the 2015 "Chevy SS"?

I read this article about a year ago. The only thing I've heard about the 2015 Impala SS. I know it wouldn't be happening but he should now refer to the Chevy SS as its a legit car.
