Motorcycle throttle bodies for your car


[Dem_z] modded his Honda VTEC engine to use a set of individual throttle bodies from a 2001 Suzuki GSX-R motorcycle. The fuel injection bungs on the throttle bodies were epoxied shut and the bodies were only used to provide individual butterflies for each cylinder. This one doesn’t quite make our to do list, but it’s definitely a hack.

[bender386] caught my blunder first, so I’ll be sending him a bit of Hack-A-Day swag. In the meantime, here’s a little bonus: Check out this home built anamorphic lens. Native 2.35:1 projectors have started showing up, but they’re insanely expensive. By adding some image processing and a lens to stretch the projected image, you can get full width projection and use all the pixels on the projector.

  1. YOWZA!

    I’m circuit bending a 50-cent electronic guitar and feeling “differently-abled” by comparison!

    Go dude, GO!

  2. What’s all this? You guys are really making me feel hopeless as though I truly have come to the end of the internet. Not only is this all over damn near every car enthusiast site, but it was posted on here back in ’05. http://www.hackaday.com/2005/09/16/individual-throttle-body-setup/

    How about letting people know about PGMFI.Orgs struggle with Hondata who has been trying to shut down all grass roots development of DIY ECU tunning.

  3. First off, why are you comparing ITB’s to a turbo? Completely different.

    Anyway, the other thing you should mention here is how hard it is to tune ITBs. You can’t just slap em on and hope you car runs well, you’ll need to redo your fuel maps so that the car runs correctly. For OBD1 Hondas, check out CHROME and for OBD0 check out turboedit (dead but you should still be able to find roms on the net).

    Drivability isn’t much of an issue with ITB’s if they’re tuned right. HOwever they won’t make a lot more power than the stock manifold unless you’re running some serious engine mods. Think high comp pistons, nice header and some decent head work (PnP + cams).

  4. lil out of my reach there but my old subaru justy had constant carb issues so i welded a manidold up and put the carbs from a 1979 750 special on it … took some rejetting to get the power back up but with those and a glasspack it rumbled nicely
