I was asking about 7/9 in this thread too and it seems like the general consensus is that the Holley pan and Hooker manifolds work with STS mounts on both chassis. Also seems the truck intake and accessories will fit if the firewall is modified for the engine to sit back far enough.

Thanks for the heads up on the headers and pan listings Cosby. That is a huge plus and frees up some monies for other things to keep the swap more budget friendly in true TB fashion!

Matt has them sitting next to each other on the bench in this vid:



Roughly midway through. There doesn't seem to be much of a difference in height.

Super helpful for me as well. Those low profile intakes are a little pricey and I have three truck intakes laying around combine that with the fact that they flow real well it's a win-win for me.
By the way 9 second Volvo's are what dreams are made of

Old man done it before tip;
Nematic palm hammer and/or take a big ass Hilti with a crappy bit and weld on a old hammer tip.
works great for these tunnels.
Of course you could do it correctly and cut the tunnel out and weld.

The tbss intake is about the same height. However, you gotta make sure you have a throttle body that will clear the hood because of the angle

You can used a air hammer with a button head, shouldn't have to cut anything out.

I couldn’t fit a trailblazer SS intake with a flathood. I had to use LS1.

The truck intake fits nicely. The large alternator case won't fit

Wild guess would be "like" since it has the upside down facebook like symbol next to it

Yeah with the flat hood you're pretty screwed as far as good oem intakes are concerned. As far as being cost effective
