its not as much about the gains as it is about the driveability, more linear without a flatspot or dip

You could always look at the list of folks who have complained saying it was a waste of money and that they wish they never bought one and were given a complete money back refund.

1.
2.
3.
......

See where I'm going here? LOL NO offense taken at all. They do exactly what they claim to. And they make power. Consistently.

^^ obviously a customer who's had a chance to drive a car with one installed and knows the difference.

Offer is always on the table....if you aren't satisfied, I'll buy it back. We have folks waiting (happily I might add) weeks for them.

Enjoy!

Then don't buy one, don't experience one and you'll never have to worry about it.

Why would so many people post about something they are trying to justify? It's the CHEAPEST MOD out that does something for performance. If it sucked, we'd say so.

But, never mind.

That can definitely be counted on! I would go so far to say that the absence of a "Ported Throttle Bodies are a waste" thread is a good indicator that they don't.

I have had nothing but positive reviews on the VMax stuff... I think this review pretty much sums it up, great modification for the dollar and no regret for spending it. Here is one off of our website:

"works great for the lower rpm's mostly under 3k rpm, noticeable difference , seems like the engine works less to get up to speed, there's not a huge huge difference, but then again I wasn't looking for one"

Usually those that put things like this or catchcans down the most have never tried one or bought a cheap knockoff on ebay that looks good but don't work.

I think all the dyno comparisons showing the gains, and with over 3400 of them in use, I'd say steelinsane figured it all out.....it is a huge conspiracy and all seeing the gains, etc. are making them up!

No really, at the low price and the years of countless tests proving so, no one is doing much pushing to sell them....they sell themselves.

Mine came in yesterday, installed today... It is definitely worth every penny! All gears have a noticeable improvement in the sub3k rpm range. Ill update in a week or two about mpg but as of right now I'm completely satisfied. Great product highly recommend to any LFX owner!

Finally!!! after trying to get it from the FedEx guy (Seems I needed to be at home) since last Friday, I was able to pick it up yesterday! Put it on last night and yes, it does make a difference, it seems smoother and a little more responsive at the lower end. Got it from Matt@FSP and am WELL PLEASED with the service, not happy with FedEx but, that's another story, Matt, I will put mine in the mail today back to yall, dont want anyone to have to wait like I did just because I was lazy :-)

What's the current wait for one of these? And can I get a relatively new one? Mine has 1050 miles on it, so its still practically a virgin.

In stock, I've had the LFX's available for a bit now from a stocking order. Most of the LFX TB's are low mileage, but we cannot guarantee mileage. If you want us to use yours as a core we can, but the turnaround increases from doing so. I can assure you that you will have a perfectly working TB when you receive our core.

Iceyone: Glad to hear you got it bud. I'll look for the core and refund same day

No wait if you order from SWS.

We always have the biggest and largest selection of in stock Vmax stuff.

Matt usually has about the same amount as us too. We're in a stocking competition.

It's a Stock Off. LOL

I bought a new ported body throttle from Mike Norris. My OEM throttle body only had about 2000 miles. I can not remember the price for new, but did not break the bank. I am very happy with the response of my CNC ported throttle body.

Not much difference visually from my prospective. But performance wise BIG improvement from what I hear. How do you like it? Did you notice the difference
Immediately? I'm next in line for one as well

I love my vmax. Fsp and Rodney and Matt did it for me. It's night and day. Driving from Orlando to tampa with ported throttle body was so fun. Quicker response. No hesitation. Car felt like it was a nicer drive from the accelerator. Best mod for the money by far

You can't tell from that pic, but major difference looking into the 2 when you have them in your hands.

I can feel the smoother acceleration already, and its only been 48 hours since I installed.

I got mine installed by Matt@FSP at the sunshine state camaro rally and all I gotta say is WOW! It really does work, I had a slight lag when going from a stop and now its no where to be found! It was a good thing I got to Matt's tent on the first day because I heard they sold out of their stock! I can assure you that it does work. Matt is a great vender to help you with your order aswell
