Im building the same motor for my mk3 right now. Can you give me some info on the ITB setup?
It is an ADR lower manifold mated to a flange from zornig. The flange is for Toyota ae111 or ae101 throttle bodies. The manifold was modified to get the proper angle. Velocity stacks from techno toy tuning. There are other lengths available but not easily in US and ITG filter with custom made plate. Custom made fuel rail and brackets. Custom made vacuum manifold.
What would it cost to have one made? I was going BT 1.8T but decided I would rather spend the extra $4k on paint and body so I can have the car finished sooner.
I have the AEB head already and will have an aba block soon. I had one that I sold or else Id be on my way
Hope you don't mind me adding more info in this thread. I also used an ADR manifold, then used 750 GSXR bike ITBs. With some all thread rod, nuts and/or washers spaced out for correct manifold spacing, and these were also the correct diameter for the ADR couplers.
Keep it up Bonesaw, love what you are doing.
Do you have any problem with the small throw using motorcycle throttle bodies? We have a car at the shop with extrudabodies and the pedal goes from idle to WOT in a really short distance. With the AE111 it has a more normal feel to it because they were designed for a car. I've heard that OBX makes knock offs of the Toyota throttle bodies for a honda. Someone should give them a whirl.
That was probably back in 2008 and it was only ITB'd for one summer. So recalling, it didn't seem short, but guessing shorter than a stock cable throw. The cable was actually a bike shifter cable to make it all work correctly. I'm sure there are better options out there that are more fit for automotive use, just wanted to throw that info out there as it's a cheap option. We all know that's not always the best choice though. The car ran great at WOT but was fairly touchy at partial throttle, which is probably part of the shorter throw you were asking about. Hope that clears it up a bit.
For the bike throttles they are touchy unless you put on a progressive throttle cam from a stock tb or make a larger std one.
Ran a new personal best today at Fall show and go. 12.58 @ 106.87. It was the exact same setup as my 12.75 @ Waterfest. Same E70 gas that i bought in april. Really happy with the car. Developed another trans problem but will get it all sorted out and back to the track.

Awesome Ben! Let's put some real fuel in that thing and see what it will do in good air on a good track.

My mk3 in street trim (front half interior) w vr6 was 2450 w me at a solid 200lbs. Hes right where he should be. Getting to a class legal 2150 is going to take more work.
Not without cutting. Maybe with no dash and lexan, which would be legal. The only reason to run a 6cyl is for ballast.
