Hand Ported Throttle Body

I hand ported my throttle body today and went to the track tonight. The throttle response is awesome. Previous best time was 12.007 @ 115.2, now with PTB new best is 11.93 @ 115.19 into a 10-15mph head wind. I guess I am a member of the 11 second club now. This is the cheapest mod I have done so far with great results!

There was a steady 10-15mph head wind everyone was down 1-2mph.

Man that's awesome, you need to clone that car. I've been following your build but missed what it weighs.

Look at the signature -- with just those mod's, 11.90's is not reality.....

And it runs fine? The calibrations for the LS2 TBs are very different from the LS3. Even the blade rotates in a different direction.

Also, the LS2 TB is a porters dream, tons of improvements can be had on the LS2 TB compared to any other GM TB.

Well, since hes in LA its very close to sea level and if he was getting 12.7s bone stock then its possible if driven to a T I guess.

Bo knows. No, the 2013 is the same LS3 gold blade...that is a LS2 and yes, the LS2 will NOT work with a LS3 PCM car, and yes, the LS2 gives the biggest improvement due to the casting shape giving us more to work with where some of the LS3/L99 we have to leave untouched due to the shape.

Well I guess you may be wrong about it not working on a LS3 PCM car. And by the way the TB came off of a L76/L92 style manifold. It works, drives and run perfectly on my car! I'm not stupid enough to post something like this if it was not true! Here are some pics of it on my car.
