Default individual throttle bodies

Anyone on this site have individual throttle bodies fitted? I've been told by a fairly well trusted mate/mechanic that here in the uk it's probably gonna cost about the same to have a turbo kit fitted as itb's. I know i'll get much bigger gains with a turbo, but I keep seing that s2000 vid on streetfire, it sounds phenomanal! Anyway, its all a long way away, got a holiday to pay for first!

I know ITB's are gonna run you about 2-2.5k US dollars, but you prolly could put them on yourself without too much trouble.

its fairly straightforeward...but it will cost you. 2 grand american at least. thats for a cheap set. but oooo will your motor scream when you get it done. theyre probably one of the best things you can get for a N/A honda engine.

Jeff Evans estimated a set of ITBs would only see gains of 5ft/lbs and 10whp over his AIR set up. Granted, the AIR IM costs about as much as ITBs.
