    It has it's place, it's just that I feel in our little corner of the market the benefits of aluminum intakes boil down mainly to the ability to port them and potentially smoother airflow if you get something like a Bullitt intake with the twin-blade throttle body, but that is only realized via forced induction.

    F.A.S.T. is already on the fast track to producing a 3V intake manifold, as well as many others, and the 3V was released in 04, our motor has been the same since 99 and not a bit of effort has been put forth from many manufacturers that you'd expect it from. That's what gets me. Noone has really even jumped on the 4V market and they're well known for having lazy intakes that can be improved on quite a bit.

    LS2 Killer over on Corral was running a 200 shot and N/A he was @ 330rwhp and on the juice he was @550 rwhp that was until his Bullitt Intake exploded from a back fire :)

    I have seen a few do that, if the car is tuned well it will handle it, but for how long ? There is just not enough C.I for those ammounts of nitrous IMHO, to each there own.
