    Definitely NW90. FAST 90 TB's have had problems with throttle blades sticking...

    Im guessing performance is overall the same but what your saying is the quality of the Nick Williams 90mm is better right?

    If you take the time to go to the 'other' LS1 site and do a search - you will come up with all the info you need to make the correct decision.

    The FAST 90 TB is notorious for having a weak throttle blade return spring that allows the blade to stick OPEN. Most people that had these actually had to add an extra throttle return spring

    Which is freakin' unbelievable considering the cost of the FAST unit. Shouldn't be too hard of a decision for ya - the NW90 is a beautiful piece, performs correctly, is actually a true 90mm all the way thru (the FAST is NOT), and can be found for the same price as the FAST.

    So even if the FAST TB was half the cost of the NW90 - I wouldn't put that POS on my car

    LOL i see where your going... WOW i didnt know that the FAST wasn't a full 90mm all the way through that sucks! Just from your testament alone makes me lean heavily toward the NW 90mm and plus ls1speed is having a special with the FAST LSX intake (90mm) with the 90mmNW TB for $1195 which i think is a good deal unless i could find it cheaper thats probably where i'll get it from.

    But i will do further research and post back telling what i've found!

    That's a pretty good price! I recently bought my Fast90/NW90 combo for $950 shipped - bought it from Billingsley Racing used - they only used them on a car for (3) dyno pulls...

    Doesn't happen very often - I just lucked out and saw their post right after it was put up. Most of the time I see a post on a good deal and 50 people have already replied...

    Guess there's something to be said for starting work @ 4AM - I get to see the posts first
