MSD Intake with 103mm Nick Williams TB

Im wondering if its ok to go ahead and install my Atomic MSD Intake Manifold along with my 103mm Nick Williams throttle body on my 2016 camaro ss and wait about 1-2 weeks before tuning. All i have installed so far is a rotofab dry filter CAI. Eventually i want to go LT catless headers back and am needing suggestions on whether or not to keep npp and afm or delete both and go full send. I know quad tips looks good but is it worth it or is it better to go single pipes out wach side?

You can go ahead and install them but if it was me I wouldn't drive the car untill it gets tuned.

You can install and drive. Might get check engine light for cat too lean. DONT GO FULL SEND TILL TUNE... IMHO I'd send to get ported while I wait. It does matter...

What do you mean by send to get ported? The throttle body and msd are both 103mm and ready to connect to each other. I appreciated the speedy replies also.

Porting of the intake runners not the TB opening.

Ran that combo with CA car deletes and a stock tune with rear o2s turned off with no issues.

I'm interested in how much this combo adds to power. I'm also planning this mod next year after I get a few more miles on the car. Don't want to kill my warranty too soon.

We've done a few set ups similar to this and the car was pretty lean. You should be fine to drive it to the tuner and what not but I wouldn't daily it very long before getting it tuned.

I'd honestly wait to install till you cand do the tune immediately after. Its going to make your engine run hotter then normal and you not going to see any benefits without a tune adjustment anyways.

No exhaust for me, the headers with hi-flo cats is plenty loud!

470 is great for bolt ons.
