Default Intake material

Well, Ive been looking around and I cant seem to find quite what I am looking for.

I want to get an aluminum upper intake manifold to replace my composite piece. What years are compatible and would there be any issues with heat soaking into the Al as opposed to the composite?
I want the aluminum for ease of porting and gasket matching. I also like the look of the Al intakes more.

Thanks,
Mark

Default Re: Intake material

Aluminum transfers alot of heat. I was able to gain 1.5 degrees of timing when I switched my stock intercooler aluminum pipes to stainless steel without knock.
