Vmax Ported Throttle Body installed

I ordered this from Mike Norris last Wednesday; I received it late last night. I ordered from Mike because he had new ones in stock, I did not want a used one. I woke up bright and early this morning to do the install. The install was quick and easy, about 15 minutes.

Anyway I took the car for a short run and I will say “believe the hype”. I am far from the car expert; this is my 1st “sports car” and was quite impressed with it before today. With that said, I did not know what I was missing before today. From the minute I pulled out of my driveway I instantly felt the difference in the throttle, it was significantly more responsive. I then took it for a short ride, I did not open it up but did play a bit and at all levels/rpm’s I felt the car pull more, very impressive. The 1st couple of minutes I did notice some weird shifting but I assuming this was because of the change, if quickly settled down and began to shift normal.

I cruised around for about 15 minutes then headed home, I’ll play a bit more lately and will report back. As a note, I did not disconnect the battery during the install and I DID NOT get a CEL.

For anyone on the fence, I say do it, you will not regret it.

Below are some pictures of the new an old TB. I have 5050 miles on my car today, and you’ll notice the oil build up both on the old TB and in the intake. I did install the RX catch can this past weekend, so I hope this will help to keep this from happening in the future.

Glad to hear you like the TB. Another satisfied customer.

As for the scoop, which CAI do you have. ARe you planning to remove the front fascia for this install.

Going to create a DIY for this one?

Thanks

Ya it's a very small piece you have to cut off. The biggest thing is your engine is seriously getting cooler air. Throttle response just get that much better. I took a picture of what it looks like down in the scoop area. Link......http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=179036
