Absolute Performance and Holderdown Performance can both supply what you want. I will be putting on a stage 3 that is done by Matt aka sootpowered and available through Holderdown. I believe Elite sells one also.

You have three aftermarket units that I know of:

1) Go-Go, which may be a bad choice based on the reviews I've seen on the little gaskets leaking, and some owners having to torque the manifold to fit, since it showed up warped.

2) Absolute Apex, Absolute 6.0L Apex Intake Manifold - These also bolt on the floor and then get plugs on top.

3) Soot-Powered [Holderdown], Got the soot powered high velocity intake manifold!!! - Looks like it bolts like the stock manifold.

All run about the same when you look at their sites. Some of the forum prices are less.

You saw what Adrian is doing by hand with a grinder, if you can do the welding yourself (or cheaply) that may be the best option of all. I like the diverter on the Soot-Powered unit, may incorporate that into mine (should I take the job on myself).

On Edit: Looks like he beat me to it.

You can buy a good stock intake manifold on eBay right now for $85 plus shipping that's what I'm doing when I rip mine apart for studs and gaskets. I'm cutting the enitire manifold in half and gutting it completely polishing the entire inside and filling the voids adding a diverter deleting the egr portion porting the ports and welding it all back together.

Just finished this one...its completely gutted of the egr stuff but the coolant can still flow like stock. I read on a couple forums that the egr deleted intakes that ran the coolant back to the bottle were experiencing warmer oil temps so i wanted to see how this would work. Its ugly but the next one i do will be made with custom tubing for the coolant instead of the stock neck, just ran outa time on this one.

There is a hell of a lot of pissing going on over these things. seems like best bet is to go at it yourself, when I get my garage up this will be the first project going down in there. Thanks for all the info. I'll do a thread of cutting one apart in a month or so, then you guys can all tell me where I'm going wrong
