The don't,

Phil at AI told be all they do is a port match of sorts on the ones they do.

Mine was ported by Vengeance they just do some port work too.

Tony actually takes it apart and does alot of work to it. There is a bit of price difference.

But if your wanting every last drop of power and an insane amount of attention to detail check out the thread "What it takes to improve a FAST" and see what you would be paying for.

that def was a pissing match. figure vengence would have chimed back in on it. ive talked to tony in the past when i was going to build my old motor and he knows his shit. if i ever get another fast intake and decide to do heads and cam, im going to tony once again :hail:

I see at least one of these threads a week and think that most people could port their own stuff if they just Google's a lot and took their time. Am I wrong?

I ported my own...wasn't all that hard, just time consuming. I probably put a good 8 hours into it for my first time. I got 20 rwhp off a FAST 92 so I must have done something right.

Can you do it? Absolutely? Will be be Mamo quality, most definitely not. Is it worth the price he charges? To some yes, to some no.

It is all what you want out of the combo and your budget.

Is Veng. as good or better than Tony? Probably not, are they a viable option for the money, absolutely. Tony is the best and he charges accordingly.

I'm NOT putting Veng down AT ALL... I had a Veng ported 90 myself and was VERY VERY pleased with the gains (34Rwhp IIRC over an ls1 intake with stock 98 heads). Too many perfect setups ported by Mamo to argue it though IMO.

Mamo is the best, I wouldn't use him because I'm a tight ass. LOL

Both are top notch quality that stand behind their work.... That is about as far as this thread should go.

You start a new shit storm thread about a highly touchy subject (that the search feature would have given you all your answers) only to admit your a tight azz and wouldn't pay to have it done :confused:

Thats seriously weak

And Mamo ftw for what its worth, Ive seen "ported intakes" from numerous shops and none of them compare. Thats where to send your money when your pry that wallet from your jeans!

Look for a used one, every now and then you can catch one for sale. Guys demodding their car for a sale, changing combos, lots of reasons.

500ish$?
Guess but for some reason that rings a bell from what I was talking to him.. DO NOT quote that for truth, find out.

That's pretty steep for an intake that costs $1000 as it is.

A lot of time though doing the work, I'm sure.

Ive seen Phil at AI reccomend several times to run a FAST unported. I know they do offer the service though, how good is it? Who knows. $500 for a port job is steep when you factor in the FAST, TB, fuel rails, and port will cost just as much or more than your H/C package itself..

Got to also consider the 1000s of hrs tony has in perfecting his port job, btwn the fine tuning on ports to flow bench times, this is the case of "u get what u paid for". If u don't want to pay to play, guess just sit back and watch
