Excellent write up for the DIY!

Pete at VMax is the genius behind these and more applications are in the works. His history and background are a who's who's of the performance world and he is amazing.

Thanks to all getting the cores back ASAP as the wait is now 2-3 weeks for new orders.

UPDATE:
My dad called me as soon as he got home from work because he was so surprised what a difference he noticed driving the car. He said he noticed absolutely no lugging at all - it pulls much better.

Just drove my car about 50 miles after installing the new TB. I haven't had any space to really tromp on it, but the commonly applied term of "better throttle response" is certainly apparent. I noticed I can confidently keep the car in fourth rather than third in steady city-type traffic of around 40 mph where I might need to scoot forward to get through a changing light.

This part just makes the incremental difference that everyone has been talking about. I feel it's a very worthwhile upgrade. Just for reference, my car is completely stock (M6) except for the TB. Next up: My CAI intake/scoop/washer bottle kit, which is due to arrive Friday.

Amazing what a difference a little porting makes huh? It's like I told Tracey after I got back to RX from the dyno shop after validation testing (with a big goofy grin on my face): "absolutely zero lag, it just goes".

Pete and VMAX have done it again! Also, excellent writeup Meissen!

The used TB is back in the box and ready to ship to RX so they can make more awesomeness for the next car on the list.

Right on guys...thanks for the quick turnaround!! The list keeps getting longer on these!

Great mod!

Just got mine installed today, haven't had a chance to drive yet though. Anyway, quick question. Is there a gasket like in the LLT throttle body? Because I didn't see one on mine and wanted to make sure that that was normal.

I think the o-ring is kind of a blue color. Mine didn't come off of the intake, so it appeared as though there wasn't one there, but there was.

Send a PM to SC2150 and he will give you the instructions. I know it sounds shady doing the entire purchase through private messages instead of a storefront, but they're still getting the website up and running.
