an extra 10rwkw at top end is no waste of time, especially for the guys on here who take their cars down the 1/4 or to dyno days.

Well if those Dyno figures are accurate, then I'll believe them.. particularly on a SC engine.

unless your hitting high rpm daily on the streets then yeah its not worth while because your not going to feel much, but it comes into its own when your heading down the 1/4 or on the dyno.
to benefit fully you would need most of the usual NA mods before hand

$180 on exchange basis?
How much for non-exchange?
Also, will these come complete, or we put it together ourselves?
Great idea mate!
Anyone know how much ceramic coating is worth :D

id say you need to send yours to get it modified, or he would be forever going to the wreckers to get spare ones

just because it's done in an nc lathe/mill doesn't mean it's any more accurate than a good machinist with a manual machine just more expensive to set up for one offs.

therefore making multiple runs more cost effective and better batch accuracy (still affected by operator error)

haven't drawn the throttle body on the drawing, imo a professional drawing would of had isometric after shots of the each individual part. possibly sets, and one finished article (g.a)

but i'm only shyte stirring you :P no harm intended

sounds very viable.when theres a market....
