Carbon fiber can’t cure the Coronavirus, but it is strong, lightweight, and can be formed into a myriad of shapes. We continue to find new applications for it almost daily. The horsepower crazed gearheads at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) just upped the ante by releasing their new Carbon pTR carbon fiber intake manifold for C6 LS3 and LS9 engines.
The new intake is the result of a new partnership with Performance Design LLC who’s known for their racing and aftermarket composite bits. The new Performance Design Carbon pTR manifold allows LS3 and LS7 equipped vehicles make big torque numbers while balancing high rpm’s and monster horsepower.
The new intake is 5 layers of high strength carbon fiber and a foam core flange. It also uses robust PA6GF30 glass-filled nylon for the lower portion of the unit and a forward-facing throttle body. All this adds up to a stellar bolt-on intake that mixes low weight (21 lbs. shipped), high strength, and efficient heat resistance.
The entire unit was designed with Lingenfelter’s Eliminator Spec motors in mind and can be customized for your specific application. Intake runners range from 6.5”-9”. It also features a 105mm forward-facing throttle body flange, two MAP sensor locations, two ¼” NPT ports (for PCV, purge solenoid, etc.), one ½” NPT port for a brake booster or IAT, 16 NOS bosses, and stainless-steel mounting hardware. It can be reverse mounted on the engine and can sustain 40psi of continuous pressure.
Lingenfelter’s new Carbon pTR Intake Manifold is available now for LS3 and LS7 applications. It’ll set you back a cool $1,299.99 or just slightly higher than your COVID-19 stimulus check.
