While it probably doesn't have a huge impact on air temp since it's such a small area of the intake manifold, it certainly can't hurt to get it off of the engine.

I have a question about this. Having moved from a 2011 LLT to a 2013 LFX, It seems the engine compartment is way hotter and for longer on the LFX. Anyone know if this is true, and by how much? And if it is true, wouldn't that drive up the temp of the lower IM?

I really can't say myself as I haven't had the chance to play with a 2010-11 LLT car... If it is true, I would doubt that the ambient air in the engine compartment would have a big effect on the lower portion of the intake as it's sitting on the engine and the engine is probably way hotter than the air (that's hopefully circulating from movement) around it.

I have scheduled dyno time for the 3rd, I will be testing the stock LFX manifold by itself, the LFX manifold w/ a 1" Extendolator, and If you haven't been following the Adaptolator thread in the LLT section, I have successfully mounted and am currently running an LLT intake manifold on the LFX engine via The Adaptolator. I will also by dyno testing that.

Also, if you guys REALLY wanted, I could make a 2nd piece (optional) to the Extendolator that would replace the aluminum lower intake manifold piece of the LFX intake setup.

I would imagine that it will be pretty close to this?

Huh, that's new... Yup, the 1/2" ones are probably very similar to that... A little more than I was planning to charge. Oh well...

I got the batch of 1/2" ones cut yesterday, I made a few changes. Made the port holes matched to the Ports, rather than the gasket. They also have provisions to actually fit the gaskets, so you won't have to cut the alignment cones, or sand the nubs off the bottom of the gaskets if you wish to use 2 gaskets for the install. Pics later today.

Wow that is new.

I can't believe that MACE isn't on here promoting them....they are still a vendor aren't they?

If I had an LFX, I'd be all over it....assuming it works successfully like the LLT version does.

Got this thought after my last post, but I hope someone on here has a stock or very near stock LFX dyno, and then does intake, cats, exhaust, ported LFX intake, and insulator on their car with a CUSTOM tune (like from FSP).

I'm thinking it would beat a fully bolted on LLT with headers and that would be awesome. 360 - 370 HP LFX perhaps?

Hope that's a mistake because it does have a $ sign and last I check that means US currency. If it's right and they are 150 thats a little steep

That's about the going rate for these... The Vmax LLT ICEolator is $150, and it's only 3/8" thick. At least on the LLT these "isolators" show quite a nice gain for the money, no one has any "proven" numbers yet for the LFX that I can find, only speculation.

It appears that they are not a current vendor of Camaro5... Upon digging a little deeper it seems they have listed both the isolator "to suit" the VE Commodore LLT, and the Camaro LLT separately... Not sure why, none of my business really... I would assume it is the same part? Perhaps they don't have one "to suit" the Camaro LFX yet??

Would be nice if someone did... Personally, I'll go as far as I can without a tune before it's absolutely necessary. I will have the bone-stock dyno on the 3rd, along with the others I've mentioned... In the near future, I'll basically everything but a tune, as long as it appears to stay on the safe side, but as of yet, I have not installed my wide band on the car, but I will before I think I'm getting too crazy.

Just a quick question, have you gotten back to the PMs yet? Have you already found enough volunteers?

Yes, I have 2 people that will be testing the 1/2", and 2 that will be testing the 1"
