Re: EA BBM Twin throttle body?
for looks value, with a turbo install, it would be worth it - if you polished everything it would look great - but as far as performance goes i really think you would be wasting your time.
also, if you are dead set keen on turbo/s, retain the standard multipoint intake manifold, or get an ED one (allegedly they are larger internally, i dont know for sure) it is MUCH MUCH easier to route the piping for the turbos, it looks much neater, and if you polish the manifold it looks awesome.
the ED manifold supposedly flows as much hp as a EF one (or more, depending on who you talk to) but has better cylinder filling at high revs due to the plenum design, EF onwards has no plenum as such, just pipes going straight into the ports.
turbo guys reckon that for best power/driveability you need an intake manifold/plenum that can hold about as much air as the engine (in our case, 4 litres) and the ED manifold is about 3.2 i believe, which is as good as your going to get unless you start cutting and shutting stuff.
