About US


Our Background

FIRST Performance is an automotive performance company that was founded in 2000. We are a small  family owned and operated company with over 30 years experience in the automotive industry, that strives for 100% customer satisfaction. We are also the home of the legendary FIRST® TPI intake manifold, which in our opinion is the most bad a** intake available on the market today! We are an automotive driven company  that does everything from Performance work to complete restorations, fabrication and also have a full machining facility.


The FIRST® TPI Intake

We offer all kinds of fuel injection systems and accessories, along with complete intake and electronics packages to fit all different types of projects and budgets. We also do installations, so we can help you through your installation with our experience.


Services offered

First Performance offers custom made fuel injection intakes and systems, performance work from mild to wild, complete custom paint work and automotive restorations from purist resurrections to off the wall wild modified beasts! We have a 12,000 sq ft facility with 3 CNC milling centers, 1 CNC turning center, and a SF600 flow bench. We also have a complete welding/fabrication area. We use the newest technology PPG envirobase waterborne paint system and we are a PPG certified facility.

Some stock


We usually keep plenty of parts on hand, however we do only machine certain parts ahead and others need to be machined when the order is placed. This allows us to custom build each intake system for each customer. These are by no means a mass produced product and are proudly made in the USA!

This picture shows you the massive size difference between the diameter of the runner passages of the FIRST®  over the stock GM runner diameter. This is not trick photography, the GM runners are even front to back with the FIRST® base runner entrance.

Another size comparison


This picture shows another size comparison to the whole GM unit.

Side mount option


You can use the option to mount the throttle body on the side of the plenum for those tight installs.
