    Porting FAST90

    Should I pay Tony Mamo the $600 to port my FAST90?

    People have claimed around 25rwhp on H/C motors with his port jobs. Intake is already off of the car so it can be powdercoated, so that is not a factor.

    Help me decide.

    I would read up on the topic as much as you can. Mamo anything costs are crazy. There is some information out there with do-it-yourself FAST porting. You might port it yourself, gain half, but save 600 dollars towards something else.

    Saw no dyno gains with my Mamo port job.

    Granted, went from the stock aluminum DS to a built steel one at the same time.

    wasnt it you who saw a 50 HP gain after changing from an LS6 intake to a Mamo ported FAST 90/90 (after H/C of course)? some one did, they had a nice write up and dyno sheets to prove it.

    I wouldnt. I made my numbers with an unported 90/90 setup. I think your setup is perfectly balanced as it sits.

    i contacted tony about 2-3 months ago an he said he wasn't doing used ones anymore. he was only doing new ones. if you get a hold of him and get it done. let me know.
    side note: why not sell yours for 600-700 then just add 400-500 and get a new ported 92mm. instead of spending 600 to port a used 90mm?

    Have you talked to Wilson's directly?? That's who makes the FAST intakes.

    Been a while since I've dealt with Tony. About 4 years ago to be exact when I bought some AFR heads. Thought at the time he was strictly affiliated with AFR but I could be wrong. Might want to give Wilson's a jingle.

    Anyway, last year I had an Edelbrock Victor intake ported by Wilson's. Did absolutely fabulous work.

    He charges $50 more for used intakes...$550 for new and $600 for used.

    No way I'd pay that much. I've seen some pretty detailed threads on porting it yourself. I have one, unported. Costs enough.
