ETA throttle body is only 4mm more area then 1 runner on an OBD1 m50 manifold. i dont have a stock ETA intake manifold off a car here at my house(its at the warehouse) but the throttle body can only be equal to 1.5 MAYBE 2 cylinders at WOT.

.. talk about restrictive

Really? Doesn't seem that small. I have an m54b30 apart right now, should measure the o-ring to get a rough area of it lol.

Oh and the BMW Vanos 5pce timing kit was well worth the $$

the eta throttle body is deceiving from an outside perspective. the intake of the TB is 56.5mm, but it tapers down and gets even smaller where the butterfly is. eta throttle body butterfly is only 51mm diameter. remove the area for the shaft/butterfly at WOT and the total flow area is very small.

Haha. Yeah I work for a shop called squirrellys. It's illegal in Ohio to do it out of a house or something not state licensed.

It is everywhere AFAIK. Worked in a couple shops as a guest artist, haven't for years, just do them for family and close friends now, usually not even charging them. I have done thousands of tats and only have 4 myself lol.

I didn't either. Because you have to have the place sterilized and usually in a house it's not. Maybe if you have a separate part to your house solely for that, that's constantly kept clean and sanitary. I got my 2 done in a shop, so I don't know about the whole thing with being able to do it out of house.

they must have rooms/shops setup in their houses that are sterilized and sanitary. just because you know 2 people doing it doesnt mean its avctually legal here.

and i would never go to a shop called squirrellys. just sounds like a warning name to me. just, might as well name it sketchy.
