    enlarged throttle body advise

    been looking into a few "bolt on" mods - and ive been looking into a enlarged throttle body of a 2.2


    now will this fit the 2ltr ecotec in my mk3 ( and as fitted in mk4's ) and also will the sensors all fit in the same place?


    also will be gains from this be worth it and be respectable?

    cheers guys and gals!

    Not too sure on this one Kev as the 2.2 is drive-by-wire, and yours is cable throttle, and the 2.2 is a totally different animal to the 2.0.

    But I remember in an ad for either counrtenays or regals in TV selling standard enlarged TB's for a host of Vx engines and IIRC the were about £250ish. It might be your best option on this one

    might not be the best way to get extra power for £250.

    Cams, remap, manifold, de-cat

    have a look at what QED do for the engines, Fast road 160 bhp, Race spec 200 bhp(£3k)
    also look at SBD
