The same as the LS1 intake.
Not much help, I know. Really, they are composite plastic, pretty light. Couple pounds at most.

An LS6 intake weights about 10 lbs, give or take a tiny amount. Conversely, a BBK intake weighs 150% more!

Doesn't mean I have lifted up an LS1/6 intake lately.
Haven't lifted a truck LS2 intake either, so....

I don't know....hard to justify the cost considering the thing weighs around 5000 pounds....

Too each their own. It will never be fast (at least not with a reasonable budget), so....I am good with it as is. Should go 12.99 at sea level....so plenty for a grocery getter/kid hauler.

Lol... Define "fast." I'm sure that thing could walk plenty of other cars

Maybe.
But it is still a good 2.5 seconds slower than Slowass was down the 1/4 mile. And over 20MPH slower getting there.

Honestly I wouldn't worry about the weight of the intake... For the power gains you will get for a slightly heavier after market intake it's silly to think that the weight savings are worth it.

Something to consider. Stock for stock, the LS6 intake is better than an LS2 intake. However, if you get an LS2 intake ported, you will gain quite a bit over a stock LS6. You could port an LS6 and make a bit more power than a ported LS2, but it's not terribly cost effective and would end up costing more than the ported LS2.
