Performance Throttle Bodies

Hi

Today i was reading through the "Redback Performance Catalogue" at work and noticed they were selling High performance Throttle Bodies foe EF to AU 6 Cyl Engines,

I know that the Gen 3 guys love their throttle bodies, but have never seen or heard of anything for a falcon until now.


Here is the insert from the catalogue:

Throttle Body

These replacement throttle bodies are machined and modified to remove restrictions and allow throttle to open fully for increased airflow and a more responsive throttle.

Approx. Fitting time: 45 Minutes
Average Power gains: up to 8kw at rear wheels
Suits: 6 Cyl Only


Depending on price, this may be a cheap power upgrade i woulden't have considered before


They also have an CAI which consists of a snorkel and new filter box, Promising up to 7 kw at rear wheels and 5% improved economy, and king dragon filters with + 3kw at the wheels


regards,

Ash

Re: Performance Throttle Bodies

I don't see a throttle body making a difference on a stock motor. Maybe on a mild/hot motor or a blown one, but stock??

Nah, surely not!

Anyway, one of the Forum guys, Soxx I think it is, is doing one of his own. Ask him?

Re: Performance Throttle Bodies

Stock TB is sufficent to 400bhp aparently. The Gen3 tb's are small as stock so they benifit from larger tb's. Same with windsors

Re: Performance Throttle Bodies

would any of you guys have any numbers i could call and prices for the throttle body, i busted my balls ringing around and found nothing. I ended up sending my thortle body to EFIHard ware in melb to get it machine. i found they could only machine it 0.5 mm on each wall thus 1ml all round.

Re: Performance Throttle Bodies

Joe can take it out 3mm in total for arround $75iirc. He was thinking about setting them up on an exhange basis.

For anything less than a blown or 300kw NA motor its a waist of time imo.

Re: Performance Throttle Bodies

larger diameter throttle bodies don't do anything worthwhile for power on a stock or street modified I6 OHC motor.

It will just use more fuel.

These guys are just robbers trading on the fact that the GenIII was restricted by Holden with a small throttle body and that replacement throttle bodies do work on the GENIII.

there are some applications for a bigger throttle body on an I6 but not many street driven cars could benefit.

Re: Performance Throttle Bodies

Youd be better off just polishing the inside of the throttle body.
Make the path for the air nice and smooth.
