Too bad it won't look nearly as good on the V6 with the black plastic intake manifolds on those engines.

I assume none, however I wouldn't be able to tell you as the only car I'm driving currently(until my new pony arrives) is an 03 Alero, with an aluminum manifold. Although it's not that pretty to look at lol.

Actually, I could name a few cars but, most of em are worth more than our homes soo....

The stock 5.0 would look good since the plenum cover is symmetrical. The v6, not so much.

yeah you're right about the 5.0. However if I were to get a clear cover like that i'd hope to have the exposed portion look as good as the supercharger on the corvette zr1 :P

As for your comment 6+6... TMI LOL

It would look great on a 5.0. I always thought it looked cool on the ZR1's.

Even that one isn't the stock intake. That is a Magunuson supercharger so no composite manifold or 5.0 engine cover - once the roots style supercharger comes out for a 3.7 you could get the same look.
