Fast 102 intake and tb

I am doing heads and cam on 2014 2ss ls3, my question is about Fast 102 intake and tb what are the horsepower gains and are they worth the money?

The general sentiment is that you're wasting money on a 102 setup unless you are bigger cubes than stock (416/427/etc..) and even then, the gains are small enough that it is still a bit questionable if it's worth the money.

I think there are 2 options - stay stock (many many cars making BIG power on stock intake) or get a ported stock intake from someplace like RCR or GPI.

For the cost of the manifold (1k) and the cost of a 102 TB ($400-500) you can do a fair bit of shopping for other gofast parts, maybe suspension/n2o/start a FI fund?

The majority of the time you'll see very little to no gain going to a 102 setup on a stock bottom end engine. The LS3 intake/TB flows plenty of air. The majority of 102's we've installed in the past lost a significant amount of low end which is exactly what you don't want in a 4100lb car.

We don't use larger intakes until more cubes are involved.

Between these two choices, assuming you have an aftermarket cam, do your heads. I went with Frankenstein.

I went with the 102 setup. One thing i definitely noticed was throttle response. I had a slight lag before the swap. It really depends on your budget. If your on a tight budget its not worth it. If money really isnt a concern i would say go for it. Every little bit helps. I made 132 rwhp from baseline to finish and id like to believe the 102 setup helped.
