    The FAST tb is famous for sticking and hanging up. Also check out the PTM tb from Texas Speed. Just like the Nick Williams only not polished finish. No issues with the PTM, cheaper too.

    I will be running a P.T.M. from Texas speed. It is the one they recommened and the one they run on their race car.

    Quote from Texas Speed "The P.T.M. 90mm Throttle Body For LS1 Vehicles offers the best driveability & performance of any 90mm Throttle Body we've tested! The P.T.M. 90mm setup is designed to be a direct bolt on when combined with the Fast 90mm intake manifold."

    They said it does not have the sticking open issues that the fast incounters.

    Well, I talked to them in depth about it and they seem to really like it a lot. They have tested them all and said that it performs the best out of all they have tried. Thats why they run it on their racecar full time and many of the guys that work there run it on their personal car. + it is cheaper than the Fast or the NW.

    FAST claims to have fixed the throttle sticking problem by adding another shaft spring to the throttle body. Still wouldn't trust it though.
