I guess along with not having an age limit on this site, they also dont require you to be mature. Also if you really are that old, than you should understand the VALUE of a $1, or $100. There have been plenty of people on this site that have bought used and never had a problem, and yes im sure that some have. Ya know the thing about ebay is that someone can tell you all day long that they have a "new" part, but how can you trust them. Same thing if you ask me. Owell i guess some people just like to throw their money away. Good Luck!
    Now I can tell you are young. Easy there scooter. You are taking this way to personal.

    FAST
    Hands down.
    It was designed by Wilson manifolds which has been in the leading front of race intakes for well over the past decade.

    FAST 92/90 is better than BBK also. You pay the premium because of this.

    In the topic of, FAST Vs others... thats it. FAST.

    The 78 MAY be worth it to some, not to me. Either LS6 or FAST90/92.

    Sorry I didn't elaborate more. FAST's intake also has pre-formed bosses for nitrous burst panels which anyone that knows me I put the bottle on everything. $120 is a cheap insurance plan!! Specially on customers cars where they are constantly doing dumb shit with the kit.

    In the event of a backfire, those panels are supposed to blow out rather than taking the entire intake out. Then you just simply replace the burst panels and you are back on the road.

    Sure beats having to shell out another $800 for an intake.

    since im scooter i guess that makes you wheel chair? age should have nothing to do with any of this. i just hate when people say "oh its cuz your young". thats wrong because there are alot of older people who act like idots as well. so why should it matter that i am 28 and you are 90? i guess the difference is Viagra

    Don't know, I don't mess with it on my own stuff.

    "Always" is questionable,,,,but I would definately go with it if a power adder was in my future on a plastic intake.

    I've done a few but ironically I just recently got my Victor Jr. back from Wilsons who did a fabulous port job on it for me. Same people that make the FAST.

    It was a little over $500 to do one I already had. You can buy them done straight from Wilson for $750-$800

    Yes. I have NEVER seen one NOT do their job. Placement and thickness of panels have a lot to do with their effectiveness.
    Wilson spent a great deal of R & D to make sure they would put their name on that intake design.

    The ? about porting your own intake. . . . . . . i would ask why? Unless you have big cubic inch motor flow should NOT be a restriction. Now if the heads are ported that port matching just the last 3/4-1" of the port is something I would take on myself. Other than that porting a intake yourself without a flowbench is kind of like pissing in the wind. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The runners are soooo different from port to port it's hard to get flow uniform without a flowbench to constantly check your work on that cylinder.

    I have seen MANY or should I say most home porters do MORE damage than good in porting there own intakes. Working in a machine shop for years I seen a lot of fuck ups walk in for use to flow on the bench. Looks can be VERY deceiving. . . . . . . . .

    How much HP is there in port matching your intake. enough to make it worth me taking a risk???
