    Personally I'd go with PRC LS6 heads from Texas Speed. Should be about the same price, better results from what I've seen tho.

    Also with the FAST 90 can I put a stock TB on it or do I have to put a 90MM on it right away? I will put a nick williams on it eventully when I do head cam just wondering If I could use a stocker.

    well considering you can buy the FAST 90/90 combo right now for $1000k, i would do that. also you cannot fit a stock TB onto a FAST 90 intake...

    dont do what i did and waste your time and moeny on an Ls6. just save up and go all out after the H/C...imo

    If you're doing H/C why not go for the intake too? Why not do the LS6? They are capable of supporting up to 500 hp. I got my 224/224 with 112 LSA from thunder racing. Good guys.

    i suggested that because i have a H/C car and back in Janurary I installed an Ls6 intake with the heads, and gained 36/24 respectively to these number (409/386 with my 224 .581 112lsa). this past friday, i installed a ported FAST 90/90 combo and gained an additional 35rwhp/10rwtq (now sitting at 444/395) over the Ls6 intake. why waste the money on an Ls6 intake...?

    just get the FAST 90/90 and be done w/it the first time out...

    click on the link in my sig and you will have a video write up of my car. here is my write up in regards to the FAST 90/90...

    sorry I think I had my mind on something else when I wrote that. what I ment was is porting worth it?

    and not really for this thread but how do you get the bottom bolt of the EGR hooked up to the header? do you have to go from the bottom?

    i do not know about the EGR bolt, i removed both my AIR and EGR and then cut off the provisions from the headers and had them welded over and grinded down...
