The production Carbon XR LS7 Intake Manifold can be configured many different ways. It can fit a standard deck or tall deck block engine without using spacers to mount to the heads. Simply let us know when ordering and it will come with the appropriate brackets. While most of our intakes have throttle flanges for the GM 90mm 4 bolt throttle, we can custom machine a different flange if you need to use a different throttle body. When it comes to finishing the intake to perfectly suit your special project we offer a number of color and surface finish options.
1) Runners can be raw carbon, polished carbon or UV clearcoat gloss finish.
2) The plenum has a little high level of natural carbon polished gloss due to its manufacturing method and often passes as having been painted. We can however add gloss UV clearcoat for protection from the sun and a slightly higher level of gloss.
3) The billet head, plenum and throttle flanges can be anodized nearly any color imaginable. While it is not as precise as paint, if you have a target color our anodizer can try to match it as closely as possible. We typically stock black and red flanges, however special order options offer blue, orange, yellow, gold, green or purple. We can also polish the billet components as an option.
If you have an application that receives high exposure to sun or other UV light you need an automotive grade UV clearcoat on your carbon and anodized aluminum to prevent ambering the epoxy and fading of the anodizing. Our most popular combinations are polished or UV coated runners with polished out of mold plenums on black anodized billet. Combined with an appropriate engine bay it looks sinister. If you want your engine bay to be a setting for a beautiful jewel then anodized billet can accent the body color of the car.
