Victor motorsport's manifold seems to have more gains

Port your own...or have it ported. I haven't seen anyone that has been psyched about spending 799-1000 bucks on one yet. And I know three people with em.

Talk to me.

what do you have done to your motor to need the intake?

bolt-ons are not really enough to maximize the potential of the LSXR intake. it is better suited for forced induction motors and those that are built with big hp numbers and low 1/4 mile times in mind.

I have a vector one available in a couple of weeks.
I am actually switching to the LSXr because we are building a 427 stroker and will need to feed it some serious air!!

If you are interested in either one let me know, I would be happy to answer questions for you, I had probably the first Vector one for the new camaro.

The only people who really rave about em are the "Big Cubes" LSX guys who can see rational increases on a Dyno by having them.

But for us commoners, I just can't see going to a FAST piece that soon.

Until you start dealing with FI or CNC'd heads, you're gonna be fine with a stock or ported stock unit.

We had the TSP Ported LS3 intake make very similar power to the FAST 102mm LS3 intake on the engine dyno. With bigger cube engines maybe the fast will do better, but it didn't justify the cost during our stock cube heads/cam testing.

just port the stock manifold. its well worth it. cost around 300 and u can probably get 8 to 10 hp. the gains from a 102mm intake is not worth the price per HP. plus if you want to put a maggie on down the road you have to remove it anyhows.

I would have to agree with the main point here...
For a motor that is stock cubic inches, or is runnign a vortech.procharger style system, or even turbos... The stock manifold being ported will be the best option.

As for bigger cubic inches or HIGH boost applications, I would say that the FAST will begin to make a true difference. The most gains will be noticed on larger stroker applications as opposed to on boosted ones.

I will disagree on the boost applications. I've been fortunate enough to know a custom builder that specialized in boosted applications. From flowbench results, the bigger the plenum, the bigger the gains. If anything can take advantage of a big intake manny and a bigger TB, it's a boosted car.

A ported plastic intake doesn't really come off to me as a real nice solid piece. I don't know I could be wrong but I small slip up and there goes your entire manifold.

I agree completely...
What I meant is that on a boosted application you are able to use additional boost to make up the difference in power.

When you are normally aspirated and with a bigger cubes motor you have to have that extra plenum to get it to make as much power as possible.

I agree that a boosted application would also benefit from an LSXr, but I believe in order to save cash it is just as easy to up the boost 1/2psi to make up for it.
