Thanks,


Thank you. Can I know how much would that be?

You can open up the bolt holes on the throttle body, but theres 2 issues. You have to open up the intake snout a little as the tb blade will touch the manifold upon opening, and second, if you open up the holes, it is much harder to line the tb and manifold together, but can be done. I've been trying to get info for everyone on how to open up the intake manifold snout, but no one seems to chime in. Maybe I should buy another manifold and play around with it.
Thanks, Booher. All true, but the manifold snout internal diameter, although smaller, has about the same area as the throat of the TB. Remember, on the TB you have to subtract the shaft projected area, but the manifold inlet is a true round opening where all the area counts. If you can get it up to 90 mm, better yet, just wanted you to notice that.

What really "kills" you with the manifold snout is the transition, going from 95 mm to 93 mm (adapter), to 89 mm (manifold). Those are two consecutive square step-downs (ridges if you will), that drop pressure. We are working on an adapter and manifold mod that will take care of this transition.

Well, there you go, somebody managed to do it.

I must say, I tried it on a base corvette and it looked as if it would be very difficult, so I did not really force it much. Maybe the Camaro has a different duct, larger or more flexible perhaps.

Thanks, Blue. Good to know.

Any modifications needed for stock LT1, like a ported intake?

One only needs the inlet duct to fit TB, the adapter to fit manifold, and a tune most likely.

For a better driving experience and more power at low to part throttle, nothing else is needed.

For more power at WOT, then yes, the more the merrier. Clean up the airflow path from the filter to tailpipe, and everything in between, every little thing you can do counts, especially if you supercharge it.

Thanks,

I'm trying to stay with the ported stock manifold as I'm not doing heads or cam.

I didnt think of the throat opening,good catch. I was actually nervous about that step down transition with disrupting airflow. Where the spacer meets the tb and where the tb meets the manifold That's fantastic news that you guys are working on the spacer as well. It looks and sounds like it will help very much and get thr most out of this setup. Great r&d guys, cant wait to see that one as well! This pic is a stock zr1 tb, to an adapter, then to a stock intake manifold opened up a smidge. So people know what we are talking about.

Thanks, Booher. That pic is worth a 1000 words. That's clearly it.

Is the issue with the surging of the ported stock size eliminated? See concern with people who use them, not slinging mud just asking.

ssmofo, no problem, this is a very authentic question and actually gives us an opportunity to explain, as there seems to be some confusion.

The surging already exist in some manual cars with stock TB's.

Some members are posting and they do not mention whether they have one of ours or not.

In cases where the customers have one of ours we have sent them a replacement one (custom). Unfortunately, not all cars will accept the same amount of modification most cars will, and we have to customize (at no cost) a TB for those.

No customer has ended up with a throttle body they do not like, or an empty pocket.

Also, please bear in mind that this is a very small percentage that we are not even sure they have one of our TB's. The vast majority of our customers are very happy with it, but naturally, those having issues are more active posters and that may relay the wrong perception of our products.

Simply put, you'll be whole no matter what. Every single customer will have a TB they love or all their money back, you don't even pay return shipping.

Sincerely,

Any chance of this working on an LT1 without a tune?

There is a chance, but we do not recommend it. Some folks have installed it said they didn't tune. But do not bet on that. It is different enough from your stock TB that not tuning for it would be a crime.
