Looks nice but why remove the better flowing and torque producing truck intake and put a crappy car intake on it?

also looks like the ECM is inside the cab. this is usually problematic because there’s not enough space there. I prefer to keep them under the hood just like GM designed it.

The intake system it’s a hot air intake for sure….. looks impressive though

Truck intake falls off sharply after 5500, depending on the goal (and the car) a car intake could be better.

It's engine swapped. Obviously the goal wasn't to keep it like GM designed it...

It has a shroud under it, I'll bet there's a hole in the inner fender allowing cool air in.

Area under the curve on truck intake is superior regardless of the 500 RPM window beginning at 5500. Did you take statistics in college? Most people spend $$$ on a crappy car intake at the expense of low end torque. Fast intakes as an example are a waste of money for most street car builds yet so many sheeple buy them thinking it’s the ultimate intake.

still a bad choice IMO

Even if it has a hole underneath it there’s nothing did I see to prevent hot air from entering the intake.

whoever did the swap did do a nice job hiding the harness. I’ve seen much worse.

LS6 and truck intake are virtually the same until 5500
regardless of the 500 RPM window beginning at 5500.
Why would you assume there's just a 500 rpm window? We know nothing of the build, or it's intended purpose.

This is not an area where you want to compare education levels. Trust me.

You think you know more about making power than most people. Got it.
Do you race anything?
still a bad choice IMO
Good thing it's not your truck then.

That would be the cooler air entering the box.
