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 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.

Quick question, installed the TB and heard a loud pop or crack when tighting the upper left bolt. Did I over torque and cause damage to the manifold? Checked it over didn't see and cracks up top. Should I be concerned?

The bolts only require minimal tightening, I believe 8ft pounds. Do you take the tb off and look at it? I would because there should be no pop/cracking sound.

Yeah, upon visual inspection I did not see and cracks on TB or manifold. I was being very careful not to over tighten, I hit them all equally do a slow quater turn and heard a pop and stopped. Back the biolt out a quarter turn checked over everything removed TB saw nothing re assembled with no issue.
