2012 intake manifold

It looks to be a composite piece which would be lighter. Any idea if these will swap onto the 2010-11's? Will it move the t/b(concern for any cai).

From the pictures that I have seen it looks like the Radiator cap is in the middle like the V8's. This would screw Vararam's V6 maybe their V8 CAI, could be used if this is truly where it will be on the 2012 V6

I'm more thinking along the lines of if the manifold can be used on the 2010-11's. If you've seen the inside of the aluminum manifold you'll notice the casting seams weren't very clean at all. Then there's the weight of the big chunk of aluminum compared to the composite plastic. Then there's the ease of gasket-matching the plastic compared to the aluminum.

I just installed my ported TB yesterday, so it was the first time I took a look inside the intake manifold. Yikes! I would be interested in finding out if the new manifold will swap over too. I'm guessing it would flow better out of the box, but I'd love to see a dyno test with someone running both of them back to back.

Hrrrmmm...J.LTYCHE.....thanks for those photos! I'm still not fully convinced one way or the other...sure would be great if it did fit though but looks like it may not. (bummer).

If it did, sounds like an easy way for more ponies.

Ya but i think when Tracy is done with our intakes they will be even better.I dont think the weight difference is that big of a deal.
