Have you tried using OEM gaskets for the J37? heard thats the way to solve the slight vacuum leak causing the hunting for revs at idle

Part number : 16176-RYE-A10
Cheers.
I need to get it sorted ASAP as its absolutely doing my nut in now. the car is pretty much un-drivable under 30mph.
I can only get the gasket from the USA though!

Not bad mate. I decided against J37 as I heard about reliability issues. Seems there aren't many good larger TBs? There are 90mm TBs too but don't know much ain't them. Btw if you swapped the Tegiwa airbox for a HR racing intake I reckon you'd see 260bhp. Fd2 pump and balance delete thingy, 3" cat back and 270 is possible.

What TB have you got?
I will get the FD2 pump etc. next , already have the 3inch catback on and eyeing up the HR racing intake!

I've got a HR intake, to my door for about £300 but it won't fit with fog lights. I have a mugen TB which is fractionally larger than FD2 IIRC.

cheers
not sure what to do if I cant sort the J37 out
The Mugen / Toda / Spoons TB are all a lot more expensive......
pay for what you get I suppose!

Take pauls advice and lose the j37. A stock fd2 throttle body is good for considerable more bhp and torque than your making now. Mugen. Toda and spoon are good options with 100% compatibility. Worse case youll need to get im worked to match tb choice.

Cars coming along nicely btw :)

Nice one. Il let you know how it goes. The postage cost is insane so might go with the eBay ones
