    So i was going through HT and i came upon this
    Honda-Tech.com:

    [​IMG]

    OBX came out with ITBs
    799+30 shipping
    b16 only
    they look to be 43mm.

    so i bought them a vacuum log and an adapter plate for the tps for a grand total of 916.50.


    i have a credit card that gives me no interest until 02/09 so this is a deal.

    i have a p28 and 450cc injectors with box. would i need anything else?

    yeah but i'm done spending $$.
    i dont want a turbokit any more.
    916 for turbo
    600+ manifold
    400 tuning
    300 in parts
    400+ FMIC


    the turbo thing is not something i want to mess with.

    i will just install these get the direct port nitrous made later and i'm done.

    the deal with making them is the time and finding the people to make the manifold.

    they are toyota cores with a cast manifold. so the quality might be in the hardware. i am going to try and replace as much hardware as i can.

    43mm? I'd say skip it. Custom manifold+Busa ITB's=46mm. Hell, most of the NA D-series are using around 42mm and it's mostly mid-range. The B16 head flows way more than the D-series.

    I hate to say this, but those weren't that bad of a deal.

    Show me the vacuum log. I may want it for my ITB setup. My setup is 52mm twin butterfly Suzuki SV1000 fuel injectors with individual throttles and single boss RPM controlled secondaries.
