Just a little heads up, if you decide to go with the ported TB, give a call or shoot an email first. The website said "in stock" when I ordered on 10/21, but it still hasn't even shipped. I'm sure the part will be quality, but just don't expect it in a timely manner.
I installed the TB and it is great! I will do the isolater on a warmer weekend. Is there good reason to install a TB spacer? If so, what brand and type? I know nothing about these products but have heard good things.
We have tested every TB spacer we have seen on the market and can show NO gains...waste of $. We were going to manufature them but all testing of existing ones and our prototypes showed a max gain of less than 2 rwhp and that is in the margin of error so if we cant document actual gains (we dont play the "up to xxx hp!!!" games) we scrap the product and dont release.
Thanks Tracy! Or whoever you are
Maybe you can help me on my next purchase. I have done the catch can, TB and I will do the isolater this weekend. Whats next. CAI? Tune? and is there anything I'm missing?
Still wondering when I can order the TB for the LY7. And do you guys have the iceolator in stock? I want to order, but if it's on back order I will wait until you guys get caught up, because once I order something, I HATE waiting for it.
CAI & a tune are the next steps. The tune will optimize the mods.
What tune do you recommend, how much does it cost, do you sell it and how is it implemented (plug and play or will it require a tech)? I have the TB, CAI, Iceolator and catch can. Also, will an aftermarket exhaust affect performance (hp, torque) enough to justify cost?
All these engine codes (LY7, LLT) and I don't know what I have. I am very interested in this. Please tell me what engine I have and if this is available for it? I have a 2009 CTS AWD 3.6 NON-DI engine.
