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.

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.

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....
