Tell you what pm me your address and will work out a price after postage, no idea on the bore size I think (and I may be wrong) it's around the 50mm region and I believe it'll bolt onto the micra mani

if paul fits a remote i/c/v yeh (he has an SR maf fitted further upstream iirc ?)
Ah ok so wouldn't be so easy just to swap out the stock T/B and replace?

also good to know for the future when insurance drops :wasntme:

test drove her tonight and all is perfectly normal now.
but last nights 20psi boost was a rush, it made 10psi seem puny lol:laugh:
 
have you got a tig welder or something that can weld alloy cause you could just put a bead round the top saves you £150 lol

no tig here. the lip wasn't the main purpose, hose holds 10psi+ fine now with the groove cut mod. twas the larger bore i was lookin for.
£150 tis just too much for a little increase especially once my job prob ends on oct :(
 
I honestly can't remember the exact amount I paid but it was definitely over a ton..... But it was the only one for sale at the time so it'd be worth keeping an eye on yahoo auctions and talking to Nathan (japex) to see if you can get one cheaper
 
There's a full GA15de engine (throttle and all ) for like €80, i know the guy but he's off in barbados starting a 5yr work contract or something silly like that, i can see if theres a way to get it if anyone is interested?
 
to tell ya the truth i don't know if a bigger throttle body will make any difference without cams ect on a turbo job i could be wrong but seriously will it give any more poke?

i'm not sure either cos its not as small as the GTIR MAF hole or the small dia pipe from the turbo to the IC.

prob better to spend the cash on replacing the entire silicon hose & joint IC piping into a smooth one-piece welded metal pipe

I doubt you'd get much extra tbh, as you're running forced more air is getting in and occupying the same space anyway. Inlet manifold will have a smaller restriction again after the TB (one reason i was thinking about making a different one, but never did).

I guess it'll come down to experimentation. :)

i doubt it too :) less important with forced induction eh, (removing any bottlenecks has far more effect with N/A)

it's close looping perfectly in gear under load, just not when free reving above 2k at the mo.

prev before sorting the pump out, i once got it running at 14.7 both in gear at in neutral when i was tweaking the multi/latency.
