  1. I know for sure that the intake is not an LS2 intake. I’m not exactly sure what it is, but i’m pretty sure that intake manifold is a Holley EFI LS Mid-Rise manifold. the fuel rails are Edelbrock, but there aren’t any Edelbrock intake manifolds that look like that with fuel rail mounts and made for LS engines.
