    Those are beautiful! Definitely put me down for one whenever you're comfortable with selling a few! You da man for hooking the Mafia up with a killer deal!

    Whoa whoa whoa...you had a JOB?

    Jokes aside, sorry about being laid off, but it sounds like you're not too upset about it so hopefully it leads to bigger and better things!

    It looks like a normal boring bar to me. It's like a bit that has like a cutting tip in the bottom corner. It's just the cutting tip is thin and spinning around so fast that you can't see it. They have more L shaped ones for larger bores.

    kind of like these:


    Interested in how these turn out though. If my car wasn't out of commission, I'd probably be a good candidate lol

    If we went ahead and purchased one of these, is there anybody out there that has a tune that could really help with the extra air going into the IMF? Iím realizing that the Dinan TB is often found, but almost no one ever pays for dinan a tune to use it. I know itís a stock unit thatís been modified (they all are), Iíd just be worried about lean codes/rich mixtures.

    Well, I can confirm there are no rich/lean mixture codes as a result of installing the TB without a tune that calls for it. I have it in my ZHP and hasn't thrown any codes related to the TB.

    Update: @ZHP_Brandon jumped at the chance to guinea pig this one. Wasn't the best candidate since he still has the stock exhaust manifolds choking the engine down, but he still felt an improvement across the gears/revs!

    I'll create a FS thread once I get one installed on my car and can provide first person feedback, but we have confirmed that the car likes the bigger tb if anyone of you guys were just waiting on that.

    I distinctly remember you saying that you didn't want to mess with power improvements...
