Nice work on the TB. That thing looked gross!
Thanks man, appreciate it. I took about a full day to port and polish it. The polishing could use a bit more but the tricky part was maintaining a steady idle and low speed drivability. Sometimes though when you have an engine operating at a ridiculous hp\tq ratio and you squeeze a lot of power out of a small package low speed drivability suffers. In my case I have less torque than the factory engine and increasing the hp just made it worse.
However, since the engine makes power up top I didn’t see a reason to restrict it so I could drive 20 mph without modulating the pedal. I don’t rip it everywhere but when I highway merge it’s really fun. It sounds amazing too. This makes it all worth it lol. Plus I’m getting 40 mpg on the highway. I can’t complain. I think I mentioned this before but I made it from pa to Fl (1000 miles) on 90 dollars for gas and that’s 93 octane.
