    All aftermarket do not fit like OEM.

    I had hell troubles with my FAST. I would pay for the typhoon personally.

    Trick Flow head package?

    I would rather get it over with the first time and buy a FAST 92/92 or a used 90/90. They are the same intake basically. Hard to find a used 90/90 at a good price in my eyes. 200 bucks more will get you brand new. Its all about how much you want/can spend on a intake and TB.

    92/92.

    yes the t/f package. the cost for the package with a new oil pump water pump and a timing chain has just about eat me up. i know i need to upgrade my intake and i hate to have to come back later to do it but damn 1200 more!! i guess im looking for something a little cheaper than the fast. what size of tb do a need for this kit ? thanx

    Then buy a LS6. You will some on the table, but it wont be astronomical. Put your LS6 on it, and save for the FAST. An intake swap is nothing.


    A TB for FAST is going to be 90mm or 92mm. If you do go ahead with the FAST intake, I wouldnt buy the FAST TB. They are over priced for what it is, and the 90's had some problems. I think most of the 92's were fine?

    Buy a PTM or Nick williams TB. Cheaper and are nice pieces. I went PTM black powered coated.

    I agree with hi-po, If were you I'd use the intake you have now and hold out and save up for the Fast intake and put it on later.....intake swap is pretty quick and easy. + there are several tb's out there to choose from for less money, that will work just as good as the Fast tb.
    with that said, I have some friends running BBK aluminum intakes that are quick as hell, and if you take your time and look for awhile you might even get a great deal on good used parts.

    also just a thought, when you see gain claims(adds 15 hp) most of the time that is with supporting mods

    good choice with the street warrior. I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to keep my car but if I do that's what I'll be goin with.
