80 mm Throttle Bodys

hi im thinking about getting a herrod throttle body and helix spacer for my xr8, are they worth doing? I have already done the exhaust and cold air and found the cold air made the big differance, will i notice the same sort of improvement with the throttle body?

Cheers

I have just updated to a 80mm tb and yes it does appear to have made a difference to my 290, But iused the tb with the helix allready machined into it rather outlaying for another helix. I have heard differing opinions on the 260.

What cold air did you use? I changed from the ss (herrod is the same) to a bluepower cold air and the difference was very noticeable.

There is no substitute for cubic inches but my pursuit sure closes the gap




*UPDATE * Pursuit has just run 11.763 and 116.18 mph making it Australias Quickest and fastest unopened boss as well as Australias Quickest and fastest naturally aspirated Boss

Hi ratter i have got the ss inductions cold air and it made a huge differance over standard but i have not seen the blue power cold air.Just got an 80 mm throttle body put on and separate spacer (it was supposed to be the all in one model) but had big surgeing problems that they couldnt work out why , so they ended up takeing it off till they can get the one piece model to try, has anyone else heard of this?

No whistling from my ss 80 mm

I have not got an 80mm throttle body. I just know alot of tuners that have tested the 80mm vortex T/B and they all agree it is the best out there compared to the 2 piece jobs. How ever what I have is the standard 75mm T/B with and 80mm helix. about the only differance I have notice is that i whistles under slight to medium exelleration.... Sounds good....
