Generally people do not like the fast intakes for boost due to their multiple piece design and developing boost leaks. Also people have made 1000 whp on factory intakes include ls6's and stock TBs. If you are going to use it, I would at least get a 90mm GM factory TB. The GM 90mm TBs will not require an adapter. Nick Williams is one more popular name brands but make sure you get one of TB for boosted cars.

Thanks! At first i thought it was over kill for a fast 102 but got it for a gd price, found a gm 90 mm tb, now im not sure if i should just stay with my ls6 intake n tb, since im only making around 600 whp.

Your ls6 setup is not going to be a limiting factor from what I have read.

Agree with silver408z, I would not switch. I have made over 1200whp on the ls6 intake/tb. You are better off spending that money in other places.

I agree with the above, keep the ls6 and sell the fast

The fast102 doesnt fit worth a crap. Hits cowl in rear and you will need hinson 3/8Ē lower motor mounts. I still have yet to put mine on because of that. I have the mounts it just isnít on
