Throttle body/plenum for fi car

I have a vortech supercharger with a stock throttle body and plenum. Am I leaving out a decent amount of horsepower because my car is fi?

If so, which size and brand do you recommend?

No... Unless you have a built motor running lots of boost

I disagree. Even with a NA car I noticed a lot of untapped potential when I went aftermarket and much bigger. Hell. The second time around with my TB I went bigger and noticed a little more. My recommendation is to get a C&L plenum and a summit 75mm TB. Or just a summit TB and plenum combo.

Not worth the money... Even a basic supercharger setup will put you close to what the stock bottom end will hold... Better off spending the money in an intercooled setup

I'm at 400 whp with stock plenum and throttle body... Gains could be made but since he is boosted I wouldn't spend the extra money on it but that's just me... If he listed his entire setup I guarantee that's one of the last things I would be worried about

But if he built that bottom end the potential is there.

I'm going to do a TFS plenum and Summit TB because I can... and I'm getting blower cams and would like all I can get out of it before the boost comes on...but not expecting anything drastic over what the stock would be as far as peak power. I just don't like the idea of a wall of air going through a 3" tube the whole way and then smacking into a metal lip going into the intake. 3" is about 75-78mm so getting one of those on there is a nice smooth route the whole way.

My thoughts exactly on my reasoning. Have you seen the inside of the C&L plenum vs the trick flow? It's a very smooth transition. I haven't compared the two but I've been impressed with mine since it went on.

The Trick Flow is smooth too and flows just about as well as the Accufab for like... half the cost. Summit owns Trick Flow anyway so the Summit TB is just a de-branded TFS unit. Also the reason you cannot buy TFS products from Jegs.

So the summit TB would be just as good as the accufab ? And what about the big 78 mm bbk makes ? Just a thought because I've heard mixed feelings on them

The BBK piece is ok... just ok. There was a pretty legit test done awhile back of all the plenums and the Accufab was the best followed REALLY closely by the TFS. I just don't like the way the BBK looks and the giant "BBK" is the first thing your eyes set on when the hood opens. At least that's my experience. Since I'm not a fan of BBK in general, definitely don't want to be advertising for them.

Yeah I defiantly agree.. I'm not a huge BBK fan myself, I've just read that a lot of ppl actually like this piece.. As my next mod will be a tb an plenum I need a little bit of advise on this as well..
