Thumbs up Fast Intake/Throttle Body

All I can say is that im def looking into getting this setup one day my friend has a 06 C6 and he has this setup along with a tune and headers and I cant believe the throttle response its incredible!!! What a difference from my car! and on the dyno the Fast LSX intake does make a difference even though its pricey I think its worth it!

The FAST is a great manifold and it makes some gains especially with throttle response. However that price tag is a bit steep...$800 man. Add in their TB and you're looking at over $1,000. Every now and then you can find a used FAST for around $600. Another option is to get a ported IM with a V-Max ported TB like I have. I went with Bare Essentials Racing. They tested their intake manifold against the FAST manifold some time ago. And their manifold held up pretty well. I think it was about only a few hp less than FAST. And the price makes it a better deal. I paid $250 shipped for their manifold after sending in a core. The core costed me $175. So all in all I paid $425 for the ported manifold. Factor in me selling my original for $200 and it comes out to $225 total that I paid for it. Some companies are selling them cheaper, like $150. But I went with BER because they were the only ones who offered dyno results from their comparo with FAST.

And I did the same thing with V-Max. I bought a core TB, sent that in plus $150 for a ported one, then installed the ported one and sold my original. I do it like that to avoid down-time. But you can't go wrong with a ported manifold if you went that route over the FAST stuff. Check out some of the companies offering ported stuff. You can save a lot of money and get comparable performance.

Katech independently test BER ported LS3 intake - Corvette Forum


BER in this comparo made 7hp/5tq to the wheels vs the FAST making 8hp/7tq to the wheels. The test was on a LS3 engine with a cam and ported heads. Not bad!!

The LS7 shows good gains from a Fast intake but the LS3 often doesn't gain much for the the price of it. We often get better gains from porting the stock LS3 intake which runs about $150 .

He has a FAST intake manifold on the LS7 engine. That engine will show more results than if you were to put the FAST intake manifold on the LS3 engine. The stock manifold has really good flow for the stock LS3 engine. Which is why the FAST IM doesn't really offer any significant gains over a ported stock LS3 IM.

The LS7 is a 427 cubic inch 7.0 liter engine with 11.0:1 compression ratio vs the LS3 with 6.2 liters, 376 cubic inches and 10.7:1 compression ratio. So a FAST will make a significant amount more hp/tq on the monster LS7 than the comparatively small LS3.
