Default ls6 z06 intake on 5.3

Im starting to buy parts for my build Im staying with stock displacement and just doing heads, rods, cam, intake
Is the z06 intake a good option what gains over the stock intake will I see, is it worth the time since Im not running nos or forced induction?
thanks in advance

Sure it's worth it. Especially with a good sized cam. Be sure to throw headers in that list to let out the potential you will have to bring in. When you say rods, are you talking connecting rods or pushrods? Pushrods on heads, connecting is pretty involved internal work.

Im talking about pushrods I wanted to get the heads milled to increase compression, Im still learning and researching how much I can do before I have problems with clearance and having to cut piston tops. Any advice and expertise is welcome this is my first engine buildup. I figure the only way to swim is jump in and do it, I just hope I dont end up wasting alot of money, time and a 24000 dollar truck but what else am I going to do

i cut mine 20 thousandths with not problem at all and with a good Port and Polish job and like you say a good street cam it will make all the difference but from what i understand there is not too terrible much difference in the intakes except you can spin one higher and if you are going N/A that might be the way to go but the truck intakes from what i understand are pretty close to the intake you are looking at if im wrong someone correct me please
