Devised for Gen IV LS engines with LS3, L92 and L76 rectangular port cylinder heads, it is ideal for carbureted LS2 or LS3 engines operating in the 1,500 – 6,500rpm range. Assigned part number 71197, the new intake incorporates a high-rise dual-plane design that combines a plenum optimized for square-bore carburetors.
