Bo's Ported Throttle body

Hello, just recieved my ported throttle body by bo white.
First off id like to say instal was not complicated at all, i think it mustve taken about 25 min.
Recently installed a cai by k n n and i think this greatly added to the feel of gain in throttle response i instantly felt after it got slapped on.
The initial lagg it used to have is 100% gone. I couldnt be happier with what i recieved and the price i paid. If anyone is on the fence about this, dont be. I can promise you wont be disappointed.
Also id like to thank Jason @jacfab for responding rapidly to all the questions i bombarded him with about my purchase and other mods i plan on doing in the near future.
If anyone has any input or questions feel free to ask or comment, i dont mind sharing my expirience with this mod.
Next i think i will be getting an air scoop and washer bottle relocate from apex as i have heard great things about.

Cheers, Alex.

Thank you for your business, I'm glad to hear you are pleased with it!!

For those that aren't familiar with Bo's work, he really goes the extra mile to get the most out of these throttle bodies

IMO, they are much better. No they aren't spiral CNC'd but that's debateable as to whether it actually does any good. They both port the hump out which is what increases throttle response. Bo's TB's go one step further and modifies the shaft, which actually increases the the amount of air going through the TB. That in itself is worth the price of admission. Vmaxx doesn't do that.

If you've never heard of Bo White, he's been porting LS TB's and heads for YEARS and is all over the other LS boards. Those that know him call him half pint. haha

I think Axis pretty much answered most of the questions left hanging in the air... I haven't added them to my website yet as I'm hoping to build up a little stock pile, I'm not a big fan of trying to sell things I don't have on the shelf ready to ship. If you're interested in a Bo White ported TB, send me a pm on here.

Twice the porting, half the shaft

Bo knows

Yup axis nailed it.

I had a Bo white TB from back in the day, that man pretty much started this whole thing in the Ls world.

I guess it's fair to say that Bo knows Flow. You guys purchasing these tb's will realize this, I'll just let his product do the talking.

The shaft's design is slotted so as to cradle the blade. He removes the front of the shaft. I assume that he disassembles the whole thing entirely to get all of it removed. You really need to know what you're doing to get this done right.

Pricing is very competitive with "the competition"... Send me a PM if you would like some info as I'm not allowed to post pricing outside of the classifieds section.

Yes. Actually removes half of it in the throttle blade area. Bubba beat me to it

Yes he completely disassembles them down to a point, cuts the front of the shaft, cleans them up, then reassembles. He then changes the OEM screws to hardened hex bolts, then reinstalls with a loctite. This effectively increases the cross section of air allowed in without changing the diameter of the inlet. Changing the actual diameter would mean intake porting and a bigger blade which would GREATLY increase the cost. Maybe one day i'll get Ryan to let me spin the rollers again to see what the gains are.

Since i'm not a vendor, I can say that pricing is about the same as vmaxx. I won't step on Jason's toes since he's the one selling them and I haven't talked to him about pricing. A quick PM will sort it out though.

Thanks for posting that up! Bo know's what he is doing. He works on the assembly line for a premium car manufacturer, and is a certified machinist.

So is this isn't actually "porting" the throttle body, but more along the lines of modifying it... is that correct?

It is ported, along with the "half shaft" modification axis went into detail explaining in his post.

Go back and read my other posts. I just explained the modification in that response. Yes they are ported as well.

I would bet that the modification alone would yield noticeable gains. The porting is a bonus. I know because I tried it myself. I screwed up the throttle body (vacuum leak from over porting), but my car felt 200 pounds lighter with it in versus the BBK. I am really leaning towards selling my BBK and buying a new ported TB from Bo now.

If you still have your stocker, send Bo the BBK one and see what he can do with it. I've talked to him about them and he said he'd have to get his hands on one to see what up.

Lingenfelter and ADM have been removing a lot of what Bo is doing for years now. I had a lingenfelter and a ADM tb both were done the same way. Also I'm not sure what the pricing is on Bo's but it was pretty cheap through the 2 vendors.

Do you mean they were removing them from cars and replacing with their own? Or do you mean they do them the same way?
