Needs validation for a given engine. Tbs (no cünting I) on an xe are just divine no matter what state of tune the engine is, but on se it just seems a big let down :(

Never heard 'em. Do they sound much like twin DCOE/DHLA carbs? If so get my vote.

I don't pop on very often these days but thought it was worth throwing my 2p in... Bloody awesome. Joey D's (assuming he still has the silver bus) sounds epic.

high expectations.... Yes the z22 on Tb's sounds ok/meh, but it dosent sound AS good as many other engiens on TB's do (even with lower states of chooon).

And that was before I was completely broken with regards to what a fast car is or what a super car is :lol:

Throttle bodies on the shopping list for sure after watching that! What other mods has your engine had sticky? It's such an involving sound which i've missed.

The problem with all the YouTube clips I've heard is the basic microphones on the cameras just can't cope and the audio is distorted. I do have a reasonable Tascam 24 bit recorder I plan to use when I finally get round to putting my ITB's on.

Chop chop :-D My plan is 2am + Birmingham Queensway + Tascam + ITB = 1000000 better than the demented domestic appliance that is a SC :-)
