Any tests done on the LSX-R 102mm Intake Manifold

i hear gains of 14hp but some hp loss at certain rps. Anyone done any dyno tests with this on yet?

The Tune Time Performance L99 (heads, cam, bolts ons) only made 4 rwhp (peak) with that intake. The actually lost 8 rwhp in the mid range, and they ended up putting the stock intake back on the car.

Their conclusion was you need a more serious setup to benefit from the intake.

But for the same price you could get your manifold ported and get a cam. That would be money well spent.

Were getting more results porting the stock manifolds than the 102 FAST. Unlike the FAST 90 & 92 that is still unbeatable on a heads/cam build.

This intake is a complete waste of money, even if you are heads cam they still get any gains with it. Fast 102= a thousands bucks down the toilet.

I had better luck with my TSP ported LS3 intake over the Ported & out of the box FAST 102mm ls3 intake. Search my name & you'll find all my engine dyno data.
