    Default BBK intake manifold w/ Throtle body

    hey guys

    i am really interested in putting to my 2000 C5 the
    BBK SSI Performance Intake Manifold 5004

    with the 80mm throttle body but i was wondering if any of you guys have put this intake and what are the results your car respond good. Because i wanted to put the z06 intake but i was reading that this one give more HP then the z06 one and its a lot cheaper then the z06 to what do you guys recommend.

    thanks

    A few years ago I installed the BBK intake manifold & 80mm TB on my '99 C5 convertible. I also installed shorty headers (I know, go ahead... they are useless). The car already had a Corsa cat-back exhaust w/ X pipe when I purchased it.

    My buddy and I tuned the car with HP Tuners software and there was a significant difference in the "feel" of the car when driving and power. I never dyno'ed the car, but it is definitely a lot more fun to drive. The "butt" dyno says it is worth the money to do.

    I suspect you'll spend a lot of money on that intake manifold and TB combination and it will not gain you much performance.

    If you had an aftermarket camshaft and/or different heads, then that manifold/TB pairing might really be worth the money.
