Well...I just got off of the phone with the guys at Mach Performance. I didnt get much information from them, but from what I heard, its looking pretty good. The Chevy SPO guys are supposed to be getting with Bill & Co. about co-developing the intake. It will be available as just the intake, or as a crate engine, possibly a dealer installed opion. Gains are supposed to be 65-70+ HP. They told me that the intake most likely wont look like the ones we have been seeing. I guess there is a lot of work to be done still about emissions and such. Its not supposed to be out this year, but I was told to look for something in early next spring. :D :D :D :D :D :D

Or, you could just get the ramjet intake from summit racing. That projects the same amount of HP.

If Bill helps design this intake I hope they make the intake accessable for people with no emmissions (minnesota,etc) to change the setup for more performance -- since we dont have to get tested anymore. Later.

I don't see GM going to the expense of making anything for the
4.3 when it is suposed to be phased out in 2 years:cry:

I saw it in a summit racing catalog. Unless Im really stupid, then its not there. Most likely not. Im looking on it for Rhino too. I gotta find my catalog that they sent me when I ordered my drop kit. Later.

Mach guy

Whats the word from GM? I had heard that the 4.3 was slated
to be replaced by something smaller that meet the tighter
emishion standards. Under 4" bore like the new V8s. also
heard about a 5 cylinder replacment engine for the S truck.

Did you ever see the X Blazer SLP did for a GM show truck, It
had a Eaton supercharger on it. Said to make 300 HP. Saw the
pics of it last year and called SLP thinking this was a kit they
were going to offer. They said no it was just a one off thing
they were doing for GM.
