Air box/intake for LS3 engine
« on: January 05, 2019, 03:41:37 PM »
Hi - I’ve decided to go with an E-Rod LS3 (6.2L) in my 77TA.

I’ve gotten most of the swap parts figured out except the air intake.  From talking to my Bureau of Auto Repair, to be legal, the box needs to resemble an OEM box similar to one on the gen 5 Camaro.  I’m pretty sure that box is too big to fit in a 2nd gen however.


Any suggestions on what to use?  Does anyone sell an out of the box setup that works?

Thanks
Darryl

I think he just meant for it to be in the boxed type of style that's in the 5th Gen Camaros. 

There are a lot of CARB legal air intakes out there...I'm hoping that as long as I've got one of those I should be ok. 

Either way it'd be good to see examples of what folks have done to fit an air intake system in one of our TA's.  I wasn't able to find any when searching TAC and LS1Tech for them.
