Yea I noticed on my buddies accufab setup it operated smoother. It also seemed to respond better. When I switched I liked it more. Just because the throttle is bigger doesn't mean you are getting a better deal. Our cars without any power adder really doesn't produce anymore hp after 70mm throttle.

I also had the Accufab set up before changing the entire upper intake. The Accufab is known for making the most HP on a NA set up. Mm and ff did a dyno shoot out years ago and the Accufab won, the trick flow is also a good combo. The BBK is the cheap low end stuff unfortunately.

Why does no one ever look at the C&L pieces? Their elbow is $99 from C&L themselves. A 75mm Accufab throttle body with a C&L elbow is going to be an excellent setup. That and the Accufab are the only ones that are actually tested too; BBK will tell you that they don't test their throttle intake for flow rates.

C&L is also a good setup. I still would spend the extra money on the Accufab because its prettier

No argument on the Accufab being prettier.
The C&L looks like a kindergarten arts and crafts project.
I just feel like $99 vs. $200 for the same 75mm elbow proven to flow the same isn't a question. Then again, I'm a poor college student so I'm biased.

The Accufab is the best, the Trick flow is EASILY a better buy IMO.

No, you are a frugal student who would rather save $100 on a product that looks good and performs well vs paying the extra $100 for a shiny object lol.



I think it looks damn good, I just have to clean up my engine bay in general...


Oh, my intake combo is the TF plenum, stock TB, C&L elbow, stock MAF, custom airbox and K&N filter. Car pulls hard to redline.

Look at the pics I posted. The elbow is the intake tube, its called an elbow because its bent like an elbow. The plenum is the piece that attaches to the top of the intake.
