Re: Performance mods on their way!

Okay so im still waiting on the BT catch can to arrive but I installed the throttlebody and the AFE intake. The install was a breeze, I was skeptical on the throttle body because when I saw them side by side, they are almost identical but one is bored out on both sides, other then that both are identical. I might even have my friends machine out my stock one even more then this one. Anyways here are the pictures.




Lol I had to measure it because I was so skeptical.



Overall, the look is GREAT, Quality is amazing! 2 things I noticed right away, better throttle response and its a lot louder when she growls.

Oki so noob question, what is the purpose of a bigger throttle body because I heard mixed reviews that it will improve acceleration but in reality it only affects top end speed and not acceleration at all, can someone clarify this for me and others?

As long as you don't go bigger than necessary on the throttlebody it should provide better throttle response, louder intake noise and the theoretical performance gain when paired with a cold air intake. where the performance is gained. well a dyno graph can only show that and im probably never going to get one done.

To be honest. the low end acceleration is where I notice the performance improvement the most! and as for the sounds, which is AMAZING can only be heard when you bury your foot.

Re: Performance mods on their way!

Catch can has been installed












install was a piece of cake, I chose to use hose clamps because it just makes me feel better about the whole thing not coming apart, I obviously trimmed the excess metal off the hose clamps. I went with black because I wanted it to blend right in. The quality of the can was amazing, they did a great job on it. I will update in a week to see if anything is in the can by then.

Great mod, I bought the same can (in red) and I was surprised how much I caught in the first week.
