Throttle Bodies??

Postby ChocMiata » Mon, 15 Dec 2014 5:16 +0000

hey guys,

maybe i'm mad but someone got me thinking about the idea of taking the current standard air intake out of my mk1 and throwing it in a bin and putting in its place 4 big trumpet throttle bodies.

i like the idea but does anyone have any advice or have done it already?
how much does it roughly cost for the parts?
where do i get them etc???

i know it will sound bad ass if its done but what kinda response will be there at your right foot??

any advice is much appreciated.

Throttle bodies here;

You're also going to need an ecu, some variation of a megasquirt. Not to mention the other things, there's always more things!

As for money, about the same as a turbo or supercharger.

Save your money and stick on a Turbo.
