ITB's are well....individual throttle bodies. One throttle body for each cylinder instead of the stock1 body. This pic shows itb's for the H22A. They cost lots, can only run for N/A and have good throttle response and a f***ing sweeeet sound.

I.T.B.'s

not necessarily.. you can use them on a boosted set up. i saw gary gardella's older race car with a sheetmetal intake manifold with ITB's on it.

it can be done but it wouldnt be easy.

i personally have read that ITB's are hard to tune, but i dont know from personal experience

using ITB's is kinda pointless on turbo set ups....becuase your closeing them off from the outside air...if you know what i mean...and i have also heard that they are pretty hard to tune...i think thats because you have to tune the Air/Fuel ratio for each body not just one.
