Hi Guys,

The time has come to upgrade my R a little. I'm not very mechanically minded but I've read on the forum about some various mods that can be done as well as having a mate who has done some of these to his ep3.

Right now the only mods are a 2.5inch custom exhaust and an hks air intake.

I'm now buying a skunk 2 intake manifold and an exhaust manifold and then hopefully taking the car to tdi north for a remap (unsure if ecutek or hondata yet) but my main problem is possibly a daft question......Do I need to upgrade the standard throttle body or is it not worth it? What map do you guys recommend?

I'd really appreciate ANY info here!


Thanks

If you're buying an intake manifold then a larger throttle body is ideal as the manifold by itself won't make much of a difference as it'll be bottle necked by the TB.

Personally I'd find one that fits to the S2 manifold such as a S2 72mm TB but not heard great things about their throttle bodies, plenty of idling issues.

An FD2 / Mugen TB paired with a RRC manifold is probably the best combo as you're looking at silly money above that for minimal gains.

really appreciate the feedback there mate....only problem I have is ive already bought the intake manifold. I understand what your saying about the tb...makes sense!

Can anyone recommend a tb that will fit the skunk2 manifold?

Ideally not something ridiculously priced.
