I can get the bare LS3 intake manifold from Rock auto for $231.47 shipped. Should I wait to see if summit will price match or is this a deal too good to pass up?

How'd you get it so cheap? I priced one out and had 9 bucks shipping and 17 and change tax to the 215 and change price. Total was 242 and change.

When we put the 6.0 in my brother's 78 Camaro, we bought a LS3 intake with the rails and injectors used. It was a take off from a Vette or Camaro. I'm guessing they swapped to one of those fast intakes. I don't remember what we paid but it was a bargain compared to buying that stuff new. Are you going to use the production rails and injectors?

I am currently in talks with a guy on another forum for a used LS3 intake manifold with 42lb injectors and fuel rail for $290 shipped

THAT's the way to go vs. a new bare intake. They're plastic. Not much to wear out there. If you need all the injectors and stuff, $290 is a bargain IMO.

Just an update. The intake finally came and it’s awesome. Everything is in great shape. Can’t wait to build this thing. 7584A1A5-75D9-4CDC-815A-66642A5CDA61.jpeg
