Hi, After looking at the description of high flow throttle system on mine's website, I am quite interested in buying them as it seems to improve the low end response of the car. However, I have never heard of anyone using them. So I would be much appreciated if you guys could give some suggestions if you have used it or know anything about it. Thank you.

Since I am installing the 2012 turbo inlet pipes, I might as well add another mod which will improve the response of my car. So any advice would be greatly appreciated.

What other modifications have you done to the car? There are a few other ways to improve response if you haven't already modified the car a pretty fair amount. This is not one of the items we suggest for early modification.

Mindless ... thank you for the link. Yes I meant throttle bodies. I havent seen that ams thread as I have been away from forums for a while.

Ryan, I have the following engine mods with Dodson Sportsman kit for trans.

I am on the edge of changing the stock turbo but I really do not want to lose the low end response. Please feel free to advise me if you know a better mod for response.

Engine:
-Akrapovic Full Evo Exhaust (Mid pipe and Cat back)
- Dodson Catless Downpipe
-Dodson Low Temperature Thermostat
- MB 76mm intake
- MB Inter Cooler piping kit
-1000cc Injectors (Injector Dynamics)
- GFB BOVs
-Owen Boost Actuators
- Twin Walbro Fuel Pump

-2012 Turbo Inlet pipe (yet to install)
- COBB Nis600

Is a TPS relearn required for this modification ?

Good question.

Also, does anyone have an estimate as to the labor/time it takes to replace a stock TB with a modified one?

It take 30 mins, you will need a 5mm allen socket. Along with pliers for the hose clamps.

Pm me if you need a step by step, and you def. need the relearn.

Thanks, but I have to investigate this a bit more first.

installation is beginner level, almost anyone can do it. regarding the relearn, you can do it without the relearn but probably you will have a little bit higher than normal idle and throw an idle CEL code.
relearn is quite easy to do yourself on the other hand.

The removal is simple, take the rubber coupler off thats connected to the throttle body with an 8mm socket. Unplug the harness going to each throttle body, then take the 4 5mm Allen head bolts off that's holding each throttle body to the intake manifold.

Once the 4 bolts on each throttle body is removed the throttle body comes right off.

My mechanic did the installation for me but he said it is a very easy job. And yes you need to do the throttle relearn which you can easily do it yourself as well. After installing the modified throttle bodies, I feel much better response in low end even with my stock turbos.

i can understand better throttle response down low.. but to me this mod doesn't make sense unless your planning on making big power.. i don't know why... but to me putting a bigger throttle body on a car not making big power... instead of 2% throttle on the pedal it will make it like 4% with the bigger opening... and so on... so you will feel like your getting a much bigger throttle response but in actuality aren't you just technically creating a larger pedal to throttle "opening" relationship.

in full throttle theoretically you have a wider cross section. not sure if it would do much in a turbo car tho.

Which TB's did you install Mines or AMS? Were the 2012 intakes installed at the same time or separately?

I saw a difference with a bigger throttle body on my sr20det.
