Any FAST intake owners?

I have a FAST intake and fuel rails sitting in a box getting ready for installation. I hear they're a PITA to tune and offer very little gains without the supporting mods. I'm really just looking to "bling" out my engine bay a little bit. I already have the HP covered with my CAI, Tune, LT headers, and Custom comp cam. My L99 is currently putting down 414 to the wheels. I'll be happy with 420HP after install and tune.

I hear instead of doing that you could get a ported and polished (and even painted, if you want the blingness of it) throttle body from one of our sponsors and get quite a bit of gain.

^ Yup I considered that. Since I had a credit with a performance shop I got the intake for practically nothing. Should be interesting to see what gains come of it.

Since you have a cam, you'll see some gains from it (more than 6hp I would hope). Shouldn't be too much of a PIA to tune for any experienced tuner.

If you're mostly just worried about bling, they make intake covers that can make the intake look carbon fiber, chrome, painted, etc.

You can never go wrong with a FAST intake.

Since you have a cam, you will see a decent gain from it. I would guess 8-10rwhp.

You would also see a nice gain from a ported throttle body as well if you don't have one already.

I've worked with so many tuners I finally found one that really knows his stuff! He said he's tuned so many L99's he lost track.

I would love to see a 10HP gain. Ported TB is next on my list.
