Hey guys. The chicken is really coming along! I love this car. I am looking for a 75mm or larger throttle body for my SC. The stock one looks tiny compared to the huge CAI and 73mm throttle body. I saw some guys talking about a company that was sellin them for 75+shipping, but I haven't called them yet. I thought I'd throw it out to all of you first. Thanks.

It was professional products TB on ebay, you have to get the part # then look that up on ebay. it was not listed under vehicle.

He's right. Go to eBay and search "Professional Products 69232". It's coming straight from PP and it's 85.00 + shipping. The same one sells on Summit and JC Whitney for 162.00 + shipping. I ordered one last night. It should be a nice addition to everything else I've done. All I need to do now is make me a cold air divider.

69232 is the polished, 69233 is the satin and that one is 75.00 plus shipping.

Good luck.

Make sure you guys search for the issues others have had with the PP TB's. That way, you'll know what to expect and can take care of the problems before installation (if any).

They work fine, but oftentimes need a little tweaking to fix manufacturing bloopers. :rolleyes: I had to enlarge the mounting holes and drill the idle air adjustment hole further down.

So that 75mm tb will fit my 91 style inlet plenum without having to mess with it?
Someone told me a 75mm tb wont fit my inlet plenum that s why am asking.

Thanks in advance

It will mount to it, but there will be a large lip exposed to the airflow. The hole in the plenum is only about 60mm in diameter. If you want to take better advantage of the larger TB, you need to grind the plenum to blend the transition from 75mm to 60mm.

If you want to take FULL advantage of the larger TB, you need to construct a new plenum with a much larger internal diameter, so there is no "necking down" at all. The guy whose screen name is Flex can do that.

I also saw the professional product TB. Thought there had to be something wrong with it for sure if it was only going for $75. Glad to hear some of you guys are using them and they need slight tweaking. I'll def be ordering one of these

Ironworker, how much did the one through spinning-wheels cost you?

I ordered this and still haven't gotten it yet. From what I've read, PP's eBay customer service kinda sucks. Anybody else have experience with them?

I have one, but I ordered it directly from the website at the time. The service seemed fine then. Can't speak about the website directly.

Yeah. I had heard all good stuff about them here, that's why I ordered it, but their eBay feedback has some bad reviews, and mostly from slow shipping. Just wondering if anybody else had ordered from eBay, and what their experience was.

I ordered one from them and I got it in a reasonable time. I dont think they have it sitting on a shelf somewhere, they order them from the manufacturer. I think waiting on it is the trade off for the good price.

its a good price....... but make sure when ur going to buy this tb make sure u ask them to see if the butterfly does not get stuck wide open..


i bought one to see what the deal with these are . i installed it and took it for a drive and the throttle got stuck wide open..... so take some wd40 and spray the throttle linkage and turn that thing about 20 to 30 time and hold it wide open and let it close it self......

i rather still buy the 75 mm from spinningwheels-sc.com because i know theres works with no problems..... but i just might of got one of the bad ones but i will fix it

I bought mine back in march. Called them directly and ordered it over the phone. Got it within the week. The throttle did stick WIDE open, kinda freaked me out:eek:, so I took the throttle cables off and sanded the linkage down quite a bit and put a tad bit of axle grease on it and it flowed like butter. Been good ever since!

barberben

Yeah Reg. I bought and paid for mine in the 7th. Still no dice. Hey guys thanks for the warning on the butterfly. I'll definitely check that. But always remember; Butterflies are way better than Butt Flies. Just sayin'

I got mine on Wednesday, coming from California. I bought the satin one on the 19th and got it on 24th. Did you get the polished one?

Yup, i think its the same for everyone. mine did it as well. The throttle ball is way too big for the cable clip. Took some emory paper and sanded it down and hit it with some white lithium and has been good since. Although i seem to still be having an issue with the idle air not taking an adjustment. ill have to try deepening the hole like someone here mentioned and also had to drill the mounting holes bigger. For $75-85 though you can kinda expect to run into some issues that you wouldn't on the $300 versions. Anyone that owns a toolbox should not have any problems fixing the problems.
