MIKE  remember you and the Lord kept you in the game!  My observation is that he mostly only helps those that work at helping themselves.. keep up the fight!!

What determines throttle body size?.
From my research 105mm seems to
be the biggest.

My knowledge as you
all know is limited. Would a bigger body
be more beneficial for a twin turbo application.
My units are Holset HX55s.

Thanks in advance. wink cheers

Hx55 is what, a 67mm inducer compressor wheel? There are a lot of guys running larger turbos on smaller throttle body on the street or as drag race cars.

In most cases 105mm is roughly equivalent to a 4" charge pipe. The transition is minimal, and the flow is huge.

Now, for a real exciting time, there are massive oval plate throttle bodies, and even the potential of dual throttle bodies.

You might find the 105mm a limitation, but not before you find a restriction in the bends of your charge piping and intercooler.

Just got an email from my Polycarbonate sponsor.
Barbara wanted to know how many sheets I wanted?.
The sheet is 3050mm x 2050mm.

I said one thank you.
She replied she'd send two for just in case.
Big margin for error here folks. I'm covered. grin grin grin

Miracles. cheers cheers cheers cheers

She's off to SEMA in a few weeks.
Drag racing family. Good girl.

I've been through a tough time for almost a year now
but the wheel is finally turning. Thank God. cheers

How do you guys sleep at night?, this liner keeps me awake
all night. So much to do. Climbing Everest is a no brainer compared.

This is all I think about 24/7. I want it so bad but i'm limited on the know
how. That's the only scary part.

Podunk messaged me saying he'd love to have some of his work
on the Springfield Flyer and what did I require?.

I was surprised and honored at the same time.
It took less than a second to say yes and his generous
offer came at a time when I was fighting a running battle
with Aluminum tubing for my intake runners.

These runners transition from oval on the head side
to round on the plenum chamber. I tried everything
within my capabilty but to no avail.

I made the drawings/templates and sent them to Terry.
He'll be doing the CNC machining in the near future and
I just know we're going to build an awesome intake manifold.

Terry, thank you so much for this gesture and God Bless you.
This means so much to me. The attachment shows 10 units
for "just in case" I ruin one or two. Hopefully not.

Without the help of the members here I'd be nowhere and
I want to thank you all for embracing me and treating me like
family. cheers cheers cheers

My Polycarbonate sheets arrived Friday morning last week and when
the truck drove out it pulled down a 40 pair telephone cable.
No phones on our block until just now.

Sheets cut to manageable sizes and I'll start ordering material for
the oven. Getting WIKA Instrument gauges and ball valves from the
sponsor. All good here and things are coming together.

Healthier too. Thank God. cheers
