    We have an in-depth sticky on here in the general help section on how camshafts work and what all the nomenclature means. I believe Hi-Po wrote it several years back.

    Honestly for what your wanting and relatively small cam will work for you. Just check around for a used one that ya like and buy it throw it in have some fun and re sell it when you switch over to a Turbo setup. LS6 cam will do both jobs just not as good.

    You WILL sit higher in those seats. And the electronic setup actually sits you up alil more. I bought mine from Mark himself and there is a write up on his seats to use those controls. Now I like marks work and have bought Alot of stuff from him but these similar seats sell on eBay for 300ish...

    Yes the rockers, springs, and everything minus valve covers are included are included in the price. Oh yeah these will be a hell of a lot better than the stock 98 heads. I was going to use these on my NA 421 that was going to put out around 675 at the engine but I am switching to ls3 heads now.

    So alil less than 4k for a complete 1k capable motor with aftermarket parts isn't too bad I guess. Next up is the suspension. I am a true believer in Eric at MWC, my last car is even on his website, but with him getting more busy its taking longer to get parts from him and with him more into...

    Yea I can part ways with them after I buy some new ones. I'll take some pictures of them a little later and post them so you can see what they look like. Drivers seat has a small area that has a little tear in it but you can't really see it from outside of the car or from inside the car. I know...

    The reason for more CI down the road is because bigger turbo or twin 7xs.. The ultimate goal for this car is to go 7s in street form and run some of the fastest true street passes at the LSX series. With Dave stepping up his game and 2 or 3 cars at Indy going 8.2s its going to be a challenge but...

    Absolutely. No reason to go crazy on high dollar parts or huge CI. Put a good tune on it and it will last a long time. What's the machine work and assembly costing?

    Stock modded Throttle body with a P&P. As far as go to intake, its really based on setup and goals. Me. I am using an ls6 intake because of my budget as of now and me building the car in stages so I don't get bored with project. The new motor will more than likely get a VIC jr intake with Aarons...

    I know, weird right. The only thing I can even think of, is the end of the crank itself must be out of round. The fact that he has changed the pulley and bolt but still has this issue, tells me the crank is the problem. But where is a mystery. Also wondering if it has always been this way since it...

    Oh I missed that he got a new pulley. Interesting it really sounds like jacked up crank threads or the bolt wasn't torqued or stretched enough then to me.

    What if I took the fast apart and just epoxy it together? Wouldn't this resolve the problem of the seal giving away? This is of course assuming that the leak is where the 2 halves are just bolted together and just have a gasket to seal it. That is where the leak is?

    Good to know guys I appreciate the info. What is the "goto" intake then? Just a stock LS6? What about the throttle body?

    It all depends on the setup to really how hard your gna push boost past it, but I have seen some lose seal after 6lbs and some make there way to 15, but with a FAST and boost its not a matter of if it's a matter of when. I would say you would be fine if you barely drive it and never really drive it...

    He said he bought a new pulley and bolt. That's why i'm confused. Ive never heard of this kind of issue. I want to suspect that somehow the end of the crank must have gotten hit with a hammer or something. Maybe even during the production process of the crank it slipped through the cracks of...

    Oh, that wasn't an offer from me... I too have a FAST 92 that I'm looking to trade. You won't know there is a problem until it's too late. I've seen where the burst panels didn't work as designed on a few cars on Tech.

    No doubt. I cant believe that nearly $1000 and now I gotta worry about this b/s. My brother has a ls6 intake that im sure he would love to trade my fast 90. Im just gonna keep it on there until I notice some issues. I dont beat on it that often, and it's only driven about once a month. I also...

    I don't think he got a new pulley. I think all he bought was a new bolt. OP I would take the pulley off and look at the opening in it where it slides over the crank to see if it is damaged at all, that could possibly cause the wobbling even with a new bolt torqued down.

    Like Will said. you should have no wobble period and bolt should be flush against the pulley. Sorry to say but an engine pull is next. No way to properly fix the crank while still in car.

    If you had the FAST 92 or 102 I would say you should be alright, but the FAST 90mm is known to be the even more of a problem child. I would personally sell/trade plus cash to you for a LS6. It's a shame the 1000 dollar intakes are so weak.
