The Overkill 80MM Ported Throttle Body

The Ported 80mm Overkill Throttle Body!

If you have the 80mm throttle body and are looking to get more throttle response, a better feeling power delivery and a couple horsepower while at it, this is the move! I loved my standard 80mm, however there was a dead spot up until about 2000RPM. This wasnít a huge issue, but when you are driving stoplight to stoplight and are on the highway cruising, but need to give it a little extra gas, it becomes noticeable. Donít get me wrong, the 80mm throttle body is an awesome, easy mod, but thereís always room for improvement!

The install took 2 minutes and started up and ran with no problems. Right off the bat I noticed there was literally no lag in the throttle response at low RPM, which is the most noticeable improvement with any ported throttle body. I havenít drove my car in two weeks prior to the install, but it definitely feels like it gained a little more power according to my butt dyno. It also delivers the power much smoother and wants to get up and go no matter what gear or RPM youíre at. Iím waiting for some HFC to be delivered, and will retune once installed so it is possible there is more room for improvement! This mod does not require a tune/retune, but itís always good to check up with your tuner after a new mod to make sure everything is running top notch.

For those who ask about the HP gains: I wasnít able to dyno before and after so I canít give numbers. However, the stock 72mm ported throttle body and upgrading to the 80mm all shown some power gains. Because of that, whoís to say this one wonít have any gains?! Also, it was debated a while ago that the car might not need and use all the extra air from the 80mm, unless you had FI, but again the numbers show on the dyno.

I wasnít given the product for free, nor do I work with anyone on this page, I just wanted to give a honest review on a service that is on the come up for the 80mm. Contact Kenny Camaro Roberts as he is the one who is doing the porting for the 80mm!

I did have them look prettier , but Tracy Lewis said it it was beneficial to "scratch" the surface of the entire TB to facilitate improved air flow. I'll go with over forty years performance improvement experience and take his advice.

Right, I understand that, anyone with any sense would not polish anything ported. Maybe it's just the pictures, but it just looks unfinished. They will look better with practice. Like I said, if it works it works.

Please explain. What looks unfinished and why? When's the last time you looked at a stock one?

Here's a picture of two stock 80 mm Throttlebodies, one with the throttle plate up, the other the plate facing the opposite way. How is the ported one unfinished?

I feel like I know what both of you are saying. My old 72mm ported throttle body looked “clean” like the one above this post. The ones Kenny are doing now only have those scratches because it was recommended to him. They are complete, but I believe he adds the scratch makes after the porting, making it look dirty and incomplete. I have no knowledge on porting, but this one works perfectly fine and was an improvement over the standard 80mm, so although it doesn’t look like a freshly ported one, it serves its purpose.

Yeah it looks like mine after I scotch bright it and before I scuff it with the 80 grit. Here's a pic of one without the scratches as the final finish. This is before working on the pivot bat a bolts also.

Does anyone know what this TB originally came off of? I misunderstood, and I thought willoverkill was making a new TB. Don't get me wrong. I am happy that he managed to match a bigger TB with the LFX. I was just curious. He did a phenomenal job making that adapter plate, and I eagerly await Kenny Camaro's ported 80mm TB.
