To fast intake or to not fast intake

Ok guys I know this has been talked to death over the years but I want opinions from those with experience in this. I was thinking about just keeping the stock intake and throttle body or move to the fast 102. Word on the steet is I wouldn't matter because you're force feeding the engine it wouldn't matter to much you would get mabey 20 whp in the overall picture thats minimal. So would it be worth the extra 1500 for intake and throttle body or just stick with stock possibly ported.

I wouldn't. Had one, sold it and went back to stock intake. I notice no difference.

I would think a ported one would make a difference. You can also port the stock one.. For me i've reached the level of trying to get every hp possible

Thanks for the input I just couldn't justify 1500 dollars for such a minimal gain. I would rather put that toward head work or a hammerhead rear end

I just don't think we will see much at 10 psi or less with a blower cam even. Maybe I 'm wrong. I'm watching the Holley high and mid ram info more so. Regardless I think the money would be wasted on anything more than a ported stock tb vs a 102mm tb.
