    Power-plus typhoon manifold + BBK Throttle Body

    Is this set up any good? I'm really liking the fuel rails on this set up and the BBK is a pretty good price. I know what everyone is going to say, get the FAST manifold, they are the best. But are you just paying for the name? There is quite a significant price difference in manifolds. Even the BBK one looks good. (ws6store.com)

    What do you guys think, I'm planning on buying one pretty quick here, so any information would be appreciated.

    I have a friend that got a free one to test.

    Ended up giving up making it fit.
    I hear they are no better than the LS6 intake...IF you can get it to fit.

    Is everyone just shelling out the extra dough for the FAST intake?

    from what people say they're all about equal besides the fast being the best so if you don't go fast you best bet would be to get an LS6 if your car doesn't already come stock with it

    Typhoon intake isn't an upgrade over the LS6.

    The LS6 intake works well on stock heads.
    FAST would help with worked heads.

    Well my near future plans include a seat of heads and a cam, so I'm assuming the intake and throttle body should be changed too.

    Well since you are the first to call it, when I make the swap, I will let you know and we can work something out!

    I think I've talked myself into the FAST 90/90 combo.

    if its the new fast get a 92 if its the old one then get a 90 -and- i believe most people with the ls6 go with a 78 (ported stock size) or get a aftermarket 80 like the bbk but most just port the stock one to 78.
