they bore em out at gss.. gotta take it back with the throttle so they can match it up.. wats yr take on sizes etc?? it'll be running 3" piping as well.. ive talked to kent @ speed source a few times ive been up there for tunes and he dont really put much stock in the bigger throttles.. theres heaps of pro's and con's...

3" piping will be great, if you're going for 900hp. will just make your car seem lazy and not gain any more power, on anything else.

i use 3" on the hot side now and it actually helped make it heaps more responsive.. if it dont work ive still got the 2.5inch pipes.. ive done a few things on the car that plenty o people say is a no no and it turned out to be a yes yes.. what works for sum doesnt for others.. trial and error is the way..

3" seems very large, has anyone done flow/speed calcs on 3" run of your I/C pipe?

Cons are that butterflies are too hard to make and aftermarket ones are a pain to mount up sensors onto etc

I measured my mega top munt and the outlet is 63.8mm - So i am happy to have my 64.3mm throttle body

even 2.5" ID pipe is 63.5mm

I cant see the point running big intake pipes or I/C and then try to force the air thru a 60mm hole (ie factory throttle which is 16% smaller)

I know someone will have a std I/C sitting around Can some one measure a std I/C outlet inside diameterand post it up

mmmm look at the sexy arse and sides. just looks like a smoother version of factory kit. not a fan of the front which is why i run a custom one. go syms!!

Yup good looking bar forsure , need to find some sides now and thinking of running a modified 22b style front.
