Default DIY ITB's

Me being young and stupid...what would be involved in making ITB's at home? I don't see anything too complicated, but some welding...and that I could manage...

What I'm thinking is:

1. Make a flange,
2. Get some mandrell bends and weld those to the flange
3. weld 4 TB's on the pipes.
4. fabricate linkage...

I mean I know there's an IACV (but I'm living w/o one on my other car and all I need is to hold the gas down), and TPS, and all the vaccume crap, plus MAP sensor...but I cold possibly make all that fit (not IACV...Chim has enough trouble trying to make it work...)

Speaking of IACV, you'll never believe how I got mine to work...

I UNATTACHED IT FROM THE IM, left it w/out any connections, execpt the coolant bypass and the electrical, and I haven't gotten a CEL about it yet. Talk about f*cking boggling my mind...

don't forget that you're gonna have to hook something up to turn the TBs at the same time, check out TODA's or TWA(?), but I can see where you are coming from, w/ a lil welding skill it shouldn't be all that awful...

I'm liking the idea nore and more...I might rebuild the Y7 as a N/A for now...I might bring the stacks up and out under a scoop though...and while I'm at this I might as well get higher comp pistons...

not really. anyone who puts that much time and money into a car is probably going to be using it as a track car.

even pro made ITBs dont have filters.
