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! Additionally, the use of two plenums solves increases airflow into the engine and creates even dispersion of air into the intake ports.

The use of one tapered plenum for each bank of cylinders allows the entire volume of incoming air to be distributed to that specific bank. The tapered shape of the plenum also helps increase air velocity directed to each of the intake runner ports.

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.
