Does it void any warranty? May be a stupid question but heyy.. worth asking.

Nice write up. As far as seat of the pants feel I didn't notice any rip roaring HP gains but like the OP I did notice throttle response more. Where I noticed it most was at around the 40 to 50 MPH and I kick it down to pass someone. I have an automatic and it definitely is more noticeable on how much quicker it makes it snap down a couple gears and gets up a goes. I like mine.

Warranty, I don't even think a GM dealership would even notice that you changed it to even void the warranty unless you told them. Mine has been on for about 1500 miles and have had no codes.

Just installed mine and went for a short test drive. It definitely improved acceleration from a stop. It pretty much removed the infamous "dead spot." Worth every penny

I guaranty that if someone made a complete TB with a throat a few mm bigger than stock we will see even bigger gains. BBk has made a bigger unit for the SS but nothing for the V6. Guess they dont know that Chevy sells more V6s than v8s. Sort of like a small block 327 enthusiast compared to a big block 396 enthusiast in the 60s. A lot more 327s were sold with just as many speedparts available for each engine.

No real unbiased test has been done on the other companies claims that we have seen, so we would need a few shops not affiliated with either to verify, but having been involved in the development of these from day one 9-10 years ago I will say we have tested against every other and found no equal...and we have hundreds of hours into this (just as I give credit to catchcans we test when they work well....no marketing BS comes from us) so I am not convinced. And hand porters there are only a few worthwhile that no what they are doing.

As for BBK, we and dozens of others have tested and found more HP/TQ gains from the standard size VMax with the scieence of the patteren porting than many with slightly larger and did not make more power, most less.

Just put a bunch more out the door... Have LFX, LLT, LS3, LS2 in stock

Few customer reviews from our website...

  1. Awesome product and outstanding customer service

    Posted by Ryan on 10th Mar 2013
    Great upgrade and great quality. Matt and FSP was great
  2. Better than it seems

    Posted by JTR on 8th Mar 2013
    I was a bit skeptical about this since there seems to be so little surface area that would affect air flow. But I'm glad I purchased this. Almost immediately I could feel how smooth acceleration had become, and the hesitation was gone. Definitely a must-have for your LFX!
  3. solid upgrade

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Jan 2013
    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

Can anymore improvements be made to your Ported TBs that you have not done yet?

Just got a boatload more in stock yesterday and almost already gone again. Because of reviews like this one, they're tough to keep in stock . We're adding half a dozen to the rotation every week or so and it's not putting a dent in the demand.

They're really a great product and you wouldn't see all of us (JDP/FSP/APEX/etc..) chiming in to help get em out if they weren't.

Between all of us out there supporting the Vmax Movement, we got ya covered!

Finally received mine, it def. improved throttle response. Not so much lag on the low end, didn't really notice any real gains on top. I'm really happy with this product as I've been very disappointed with low end performance. The car responds nicely too this add-on, and highly recommend its improvement with throttle response. For the money, hands down a must have!

Just to let everyone know we are not trying to say who's is better ect ect...
we are just supplying another option for you, As for claims that are posted on this site and others these are just threads from our customers who have purchased and tested our products.

To the OP I am glad you are happy with your new TB now take it to the track for some real fun!

Just installed my Vmax today. Went for a little drive and so far so good. After I drive it some more this week I'll be able to chime in better.

One of the best mods for the$$.

The cutaway picture below shows the science behind the VMax and its complex pattern as well as how the Velocity ring makes the FAST 102 a good fit for the 90mm TB also:

No. You send $350 and get back $200 when your unit is received back.
