I promise you haven't used anything like this before! Patented Liquid Nano Monomolecular Polarizing Metal Conditioner used by NASA, the military and racing

Something that could withstand 4500 degrees and 17,000 pounds of pressure.

Holley Releases Fabricated Dual Plenum Intake Manifolds for LS1/2/3/6 Engines

Holley is pleased to announce the release of their Dual Plenum Intake Manifolds for LS1/2/6 and LS3/L92 engines. The unique look of this intake will surely stand out from the crowd!

The dual plenum design features extremely long 12-3/4” runners to develop low-end torque making this intake an ideal “street” intake. The intakes are finished in silver and black anodized finishes for durability and good looks. A 3/8” fuel rail kit include a laser engraved Sniper logo and are capable of supporting 750+ horsepower.
