    Question TB's on a x18xe1

    Im really starting to think that TB's are the way forward and am trying to get all the info on them at the moment, so.....

    Im going to buy the manifold from tuning.co.uk and some GSXR 1000 TB's. First question is what do i need to mate them to the manifold??

    Next am i right to say that a plenum could be made for them and then the standard MAF and ECU could be kept?

    What else do I need to consider/upgrade? do i need an FPR? also would the plenum cause power loss compared to no plenum and the use of a megasquirt ECU??

    cheers guys btw any general info/help onthis is appreciated GREATLY!

    you can never ask them too much on the phone as somethings you forget, and they are usually trying to get rid off you unless your gona buy it there and then.

    would like as much info as possible first.

    main question is though, where can i buy a mani to bolt the tb's onto???

    x18xe1 is a small block aint it? so a manifold for a 16XE would fit?

    i'd try SBD. They are expensive but i think they know their stuff.
