    I was watching the speed channel and they have a show called high rev tuners. it's supposed to be all about imports. well anyways, they put a type r motor in a civic, and they always do how-to's on installs. well when they did a fuel upgrade they put in a throttle rotor that is supposed to make the pedal more responsive. does anybody know anything about them? good, bad, cheap, expensive? anything?

    They were probly talking about where the throttle cable winds around the wheel on the throttle body, they probly put a smaller wheel on it would make it open faster

    not worth it... tighten your throttle cable and you'll get close to the same thing...

    and also, the throttle rotors also reduces the amount of throttle that you have usable...
