Which V8, the 5L or ls1...

People usually put the 5L tb on the V6. LS1 cats are also a cheap upgrade...

It's Paul, I met you at the Springnats year before last I think haha. Just added you on Facebook.

You might want to look into some manifold spacers that Mace make.
And I also port the plenum ports as well.
