Re: TB ported and polished review!

not gonna lie...but I just dont see how the obvious imperfections in the FR TB wouldnt cause flow problems. Example....does air flow smoother and faster over a rough surface or a smooth surface? And maybe with a TB it doesnt matter? But I consider Ryan a valuable vendor and member. I just want to make that very clear!

No problem. I figured some would be looking for my .02, and at any rate there were a few small things I wanted to clarify.

Not taking it as hating. While I would like to downplay your point, it doesn't change its validity.

I would not expect there to be a sizeable difference between the FM and FRP TB's at the track. However, an untuned vehicle will show a greater variance in times than a tuned vehicle (which likely has functions like the IAT turned off), which could potentially skew the results and subsequent conclusions made. My 4.7 tuned with SCT runs back to back 1/8 runs that are within .01 of a second or less.

Re: TB ported and polished review!

Air behaves differently when it is being sucked in under vacuum as opposed to being forced upon the surface (i.e. in a boosted application). Because of this any imperfections there may be (regardless of how "obvious" or not they are), not all of the air hits the surface of said imperfection. Air travels to the area of least resistance....and the bottom line is that the area of least resistance is directly surrounding the perimeter of the blade. Air comes in through both the bottom and top of the blade as it opens further.

Granted, a disturbance near the surface could result in a disruption of flow elsewhere, but if it really mattered that much, the difference between stock and a TB with such imperfections would be marginal if not negligible. One should also question, on that note, if the imperfections are really enough to matter. In the world of street-driven vehicles where the last .1 horsepower is not being fought or worked for, they aren't. There are HUGE ridges/bumps in OEM inlets that would be greater disruptions to flow than any inconsistency my TBs leave my hands with. Yet nobody really cites them.........

For those of you who are wondering where I'm getting or what I am basing this info on, I'm finishing my Bachelors in Aeronautical Science in April, in which I've been educated on Aerodynamics. I'm no scientist but I would like to think I know a thing or two on how air acts.

Again, for the doubters/haters I am all for an independent flow bench test. Sign me up, I'll even supply the TB....

Re: TB ported and polished review!

Nice write up Fabian. I've been saying for months the tb from FRP is a must and you will notice a difference. Glad your happy with it and enjoying it.

Re: TB ported and polished review!

"..... I think I lost a full sec. From 40 to 80, WOW! "

I find this statement a little hard to believe. Sounds a little too good to be true without a pair of track slips to back it up. Seat of the pants "dyno" claims tend to fade when but to the real test.
