talking about the intake guys
i got my intake in today!
but he put the n/a throttle body flange on it, not the tt like i wanted. this is were my laziness comes into play, i just assumed the tt was larger because it is larger at the front (tt has a 3 inch mouth). so i can get a 1uz from a friend for free (70mm) or i can save up and get an 80mm from the intake guy latter (just run the n/a for now) what are your thoughts?
also i will be at Huston this week and will try to get on the dyno. so i will have a before and after dyno, just not sure when i will be able to get back to dyno after
So you are telling me that the TT throttle body is a larger diameter than the NA throttle body? Are you sure? The NA TB is ~65mm, if memory serves me correct. I have never seen specs on the TT TB, however... As far as the flange goes, you can always open it up to match the desired gasket or ID...
That 1UZ TB is huge - I would work on something smaller...
While I agree that a tt intake on na would look cooler and avoid the headache of removing the whole damn na intake to change out spark plugs and injectors I dont know if it is really worth it. Some guys say you actually lose some low end torque and gain high end. I think the easier route would just go with an aftermarket intake that will be a direct fit instead of the whole hassle of modification. But if you dead set on it I say go for it.

It's been some time since you posted that pics on here.
Just wanted to ask if there's any news on your built 2JZ-GE?
As I'm a big fan of the normally aspirated 2JZ I'd be very interested in some news on this...
best regards and greetings from europe,
+1000000000000000 on updates
The car is pretty much done, I have just been waiting on a set of cooling fans and a shroud. I think the stand-alone is pretty well wired up as well... However, since I have been waiting on that one critical piece, I kind of put it on the back burner for the moment. The supplier contacted me several days ago and said that they should be back on track with stock very soon, though...
I will update with some pics then!
keep us updated carlos
btw. does anyone know what that butterfly valve in the oem intake is good for????or let's keep it this way when does it close itself?? at low or high rpm?
Its good for changing the characteristics of the intake airflow.
From my underatanding, it is closed at high revs, and open at low revs

nope its closed at low rpm, to create longer runners giving better power down low. it opens at 4,000 rpm, making a larger volume plenum and better power up top.
not sure how much power. but i can break out the g-tech and see what it shows as the difference
i personally think this could be the holy grail for the NA guys a new intake....so where are such companies like HKS, JUN, Tomei or even Cosworth?????? this could be a top seller!!!! i would def. buy one!!!!!!
i already thought about building an intake which uses 2 throttle bodies....one for 3 cylinders. not sure if this could be a good solution, but comes closer to the ITB's than anything else. f++k europe....if i only lived in the US i already had my ITB's on!!!!!!!!!
I tried going the TT FFIM and NA head route but its a headache. From my readings the only FFIM that could work because of the port designs is the JDM TT FFIM....I could be wrong. I ended up going with XS FFIM which is still brand new in box and now decided to change direction on the project lol. So if anyone wants the bolt on FFIM that XS offers shoot me a pm.
I need to make up my mind on what direction im heading in with this project.
The best direction to take would be as far away from xspower parts as possible.
The XS power FFIM is not a bad design at all especially if you weld in the lower runners instead of bolting them in.....granted it is by now way even close to the custom FFIM you see above or those which are $1000+...but for a low budget price it was a decent bargain.
Very nice FFIM above and I too would like to see that project finished.
Yes I know this to be true since I have an Aristo 2jzgte upper intake manifold sitting in the garage and yes I tested on my USDM 2jzge that is sitting on a pallet in the back yard.
