Yikes....that's a bit much even for me!

When I tried them on my car for a dyno session, the hooks wouldn't fit on. You'll probably need a "D" shackle attached to them so that hooks can fit.

That said, it's pretty slick being able to roll onto a dyno and be strapped down in 2 minutes.....

Did you ever get someone to send you a dinan intake? I've been looking around for some velocity stacks. I found some believe it or not on the honda forum. BPI makes them I think I'm going to order some. Here is a good link for those that don't know about velocity stacks. http://www.bpinitiatives.com/instructions.php

Throttle bodies are on the way back from Maxbore.

He said it was crazy to work on. He did mine and TrippinBimmer's for $120 each, but said he would have to charge $175 in the future due to the complexity.

Stock butterfly was 67.5mm. Maxbore butterfly is 72.1. If my freshman geometry from 11 years ago serves me correctly, that about a 14% increase in area. Dinan claims 9%.

When I get them back I'll take the calipers and measure the inlet and outlet. Originally, there was a contour to the shape of the TB (hourglass).

For $120 plus dyno, I think it'll be a good experiment. (Especially considering what Dinan charges for them.)

Nice! Interested to see how that would change the power curve at all. Have you done any other mods since you go the dino after your cams?

Ugh, if only I didn't have to work tomorrow. I'd totally have the car apart in the morning waiting for UPS to arrive and be at the dyno in the afternoon LUCKILY there's too much going on at the office right now to take off. We're really happy that business has picked back up this year. Last 2 years were pretty scary.
