It IS a plastic plenum, they have been in use for some time now in other applications since the late 90's (GM 3800, LS V8's & Cadillac Northstar to name a few) without melting issues.

What you see under the lip in the 2nd picture is just a shadow effect that may look different in color, there is no aluminum there. It's plastic right down to where it meets the throttle body.

The new composite intake manifold saves approximately 5.5 pounds

Anyone notice the radiator cap, There goes trying to use the New Vararam Intake. So will the V8 Vararam intake work on this?

Another interesting find...Yep...the Current V6 VR certainly work work on this! Heck, with that new MAF sensor, depending on how its mounting location is shaped, it may not work for any of the current aftermarket CAI's.

engine cover sux, but that plastic manifold is hideous. I like my '10 aluminum, thank you very much.
..should've gotten rid of the trash cans to save weight & aesthetics

My 2011 V6 didn't come with a front strut bar. Was I supposed to get one? Or is it a 2012 thing? I didn't see it listed in the new features of the 2012 V6.

Wow, the LLT sure was short-lived. And IT was the motor everyone was raving about back in '09....

Its kinda funny now i think about it. Why would chevy put a dated motor in this car if they knew in two short years it would be replaced?.
