Before:






After:











I will be doing another pass tomorrow with a new tool and try to smooth the surface down to the smooth areas existent in the middle of the TB...

If someone is interested and has a spare TB i dont mind starting the Floating TB deal again as long as we stick to the same rules there was on the last one.

I personally saw the ported TB's that were sold before and let me tell you, the quality and finish of this is FAR better than what was sold before. It looked like it was hit with a metal wire brush attached to a hand drill.... I think i have a picture somewhere but if i dont im sure someone else has to have one.

This is gonna be a really stupid question, but what does this do for the engine?
its been said that by smoothing out the surface it increases air flow/air speed. Also widening the I.D. of the throttle body increases the flow into the Plenum.

Someone dynoed a 1-2whp gain on them and swore there was a difference. Im not sure, ive done too many mods too quick on my car so its pretty much impossible to tell... plus, temperature just dropped like 20 degrees overnight here in florida so the car is snappy like a mofo....
