Individual Throttle Boddies
 
Does any company make ITBs for our e46's, particularly a 323ci. I no the yeild crazy high rpm gains, but im in it more for the sound. If not, has anyone every made a custom set?

They told me that the one for the E36 M52B28 would bolt up. Should be fairly easy for you, you already have a throttle cable.

That's a lot of money to spend for sound, though.

yeah those are pretty expensive. Ive seen ITB's for a lot cheaper than that. Thats rediculous. I was thinking somewhere in the neighborhood of 1k, not way over 2k

there really isn't any benefit other than crisp throttle response/sound


you may gain a little HP, but I doubt it

OR a turbo exhaust manifold would be pretty cool :)

:rofl:

Noone can afford paying me for doing this one more time.. :)

I really think it would be easier to do a set of custom ITB's.

It took me 3+ weeks for everything...and my time ain't cheap either.

People (including myself) don't know what they are getting into with this stuff....

I'm guessing he is referring to the fact that they can be found cheaply for Honda motors. I remember seeing numerous sources for my ex girlfriends Integra and Civic.

option 2 sounds the best to begin with.
