Re: 51mm Throttle Body Conversions - 1 Available!

51mm Throttle Body Conversions are now available.



What this service gives is an enlarged throttle body on an exchange basis for your old unit.
The 51mm throttle body is enlarged from 45mm; this allows more air to pass through the unit with less restriction.



What the unit consists of are the following: Opening up the main body to 51mm; an elliptical and chamfered butterfly to suit the unit, use of cap head screws on the butterfly to reduce restriction; ported and matched top elbow to further reduce restrictions and slightly improve flow; sealant used between the top elbow and the main unit to prevent boost leaks. We now use chemical metal to strengthen the weakest wall of the throttle body, which is behind the cover for the wide open throttle sensor so luckily it doesn't degrade the look of the throttle body.



These enlargements will change how the throttle feels on your car, its more sensitive, more aggressive with an increase of power. I've really enjoyed having one on my daily, feels more torquey off boost low end and mid range which is always nice.
Much time has been spent making sure sure the butterfly gives a perfect seal and the quality of the OEM is retained.

Prices are as £150 exchange, once payment and your original Throttle Body is with us yours will be sent out. If you car is a daily or you don't want it off the road for a day or two PM me and we may be able to sort something out.  Any questions or specific needs please PM me.

Re: 51mm Throttle Body Conversions - 3 Available soon
« Reply #3 on: January 30, 2012, 08:23:45 pm »
Just a heads up for anyone thats interested, I will have 3 throttle bodies available the week starting the 6th of February. I have changed the description a little too as we no longer sand blast them, the dirt would contaminate the tiny needle bearings that rest on the butterfly shaft so it would make it feel a little 'gritty' and not smooth.

Regards,

Justin.

PM me for details.

New batch arriving next week with brass butterflies instead of aluminium ones, they will still come sealed with black silicone gasket but if you want a 51mm gasket please enquire here:

Re: 51mm Throttle Body Conversions - LAST BATCH 28th July weekend
« Reply #10 on: July 23, 2012, 11:24:36 pm »
Ok guys, the time in the machine shop is booked. This will be the last chance I will get before I leave (unless there is a special case of power urgency!

I have three throttle bodies ready to be machined, however if you send yours over for the weekend I will turn them around and post on Monday or Tuesday so I can get as many done as possible.
Please PM me for further details.
