What is the a maintence intake on fat if I weigh 171 54. According to muscletech.com. My maintence intake is about 340 carbs 171 protein and 79 grams of fat. Does this sound right At least the fat part?

Based on 171 pounds maintainence calorie intake is about 2565 calories. Based on the figures you posted, you are eating about 2755 calories. Now, 79 grams of fat = 711 calories. So you are getting about 25% of calories from fat. I would say that about 20-30% is probably ok.

But this figure really means nothing - it depend on what type of eating habits you have. If you are following low fat/high carb then your 'maintainence' fat content is going to be different to if you follow high fat/low carb or moderate fat/moderate carb or any other of the multiple diet variables.
