For more than four decades, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has been churning out a slew of wild high-performance products, from engine upgrades, to parts, to crate engines. Now, the tuner is offering up a new carbon fiber intake manifold for GM’s LS7 and LS3 V8 engines.
“Over the last year of engineering and development to create our new Eliminator Spec Engine program we recognized the intake system was critical to achieving big horsepower at high rpm for our ‘R’ Spec naturally aspirated motors,” Lingenfelter writes. “The Performance Design Carbon pTR manifold was the solution, allowing us to build broad torque curves while maximizing high rpm power and maintaining a forward-facing throttle body.”
Made from five layers of carbon with a foam core flange, as well as PA6GF30 glass-filled nylon for the lower manifold, the intake was designed to offer a combination of low weight, high strength, and good heat resistance. Lingenfelter is also offers modular velocity stacks measuring in at 6.5 to 9 inches in length.
Additional details include two MAP sensor locations, two 1/4 NPT ports, one 1/2 NPT port, and 16 NOS bosses. Lingenfelter says the manifold can withstand over 40 psi of continuous pressure, adding that the intake was tested to meet the specs needed for Lingenfelter’s Eliminator Spec motors.
Now, this carbon fiber intake manifold is on offer for GM’s LS3 and LS7 V8 engines. Pricing is listed on Lingenfelter’s website at $1,299.99. Check it out in the short video below.
As a reminder, the LS3 is the same 6.2L unit found in the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro SS and C6-generation Chevrolet Corvette, throwing down 430 horsepower and 425 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the LS7 is a 7.0L unit equipped in the C6-generation Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, producing 505 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
