Throttle body questions
I was wondering if getting a bigger throttle body would increase my hp and also does anyone know anything about the weapon r throttle rotor and if it does anything

I don't think a bigger throttle body would do anything, simply because your ECU is still reading the same amount of air and fuel going to the engine.

you would need other things besides just a TB. you would need a Intake, header, open exhaust and any headwork, portmatched Intake Mani ect. TBs are commonly one of the last "air flow" mods
Right now i highly doubt your TB is the bottleneck in your engine

the throttle rotor jsut makes the gas pedal feel touchier its smaller in diamter then the factory rotor so it takes less time to hit full throttle

basicaly its there for looks kinda like sawing off a shifter looks good but is pretty useless


hey thats a 20 minute phone call

Hey thanks smile

^^read above^^ you prolly dont need it save some money

But if you really want a bigger TB i would go a reputable machinest and just have yours ported out. do you think that the JDM celicas had larger throttle bodies? i would guess no, but i dont know.

if you have done all other air upgrades then a tb would give a few but you should prolly have your computer flashed accordingly
