    Here's the Moser 9" I've got my eye on: http://www.exoticperformanceplus.com....html?item=145

    Starts at $2400 shipped. From what I've heard, those guys are really cool about helping you out if you have any problems with the new rear.

    Id do an ls6 intake before the cam. And make sure you go 4.10s with the new rear. Mine still has the 3.73s which are nice but i cant wait to get a 9in so i can get 4.10s in. And do some free mods.

    new posi unit's go for 300 - 400 or so...

    you're best bet is to just upgrade the rear... drop the 2k and get a 12 bolt or if oyu can find one used for cheaper do that...

    Ha just messing man. In my few previous posts Ive decided to get a 9" and i believe Im switching to 4.10's. How difficult is it to install a 9" and remove the old 10 bolt?

    well considering your going to be spending about 2k on the rear end, the ls6 will do just fine. i saw pretty good gains from mine and they flow about even with the FAST until you add h/c to the picture. i say go ls6 now itll be fine.

    I dont think there is any additional charge for gears, i believe its your choice. if you are getting it new of course

    Yes I can get gears of my choice for no charge so 4.10's it is! So how much does the ls6 differ from the fast in terms of price? any idea

    A shit ton haha. I got lucky and found a guy in akron selling his for 275 and we met half way. Most go for 325. Check tech, there are ALWAYS ls6 intakes for sale but they go quick.

    90mm FAST's with a TB go for about 900-1000 used.. and they arent always ported.
