Re: TB porting (g60racer)

wow... sweet.. those pics are JUST what i wanted... now i gotta get started on my project
..
thanks g60racer!
nate
(i thought it was a bad idea to "plug" those holes, in the off chance that could come screaming off?
oh well.. i'll use the brass from a GTI anyway. thanks again!

That is one Damn sweet porting job. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I will try doing the same after I get my hands on a throtle body, so that I can take my time doing it right.

Re: TB porting (g60racer)

Nice job! It looks really pro. I've got a question though. Why port the small butterfly opening? Isn't that the boost return? When at WOT that is closed and all the flow is going through the larger one right? The boost return should only be open when the throttle butterfly is closed.

Get the same butterfly valve from a reg 8v engine, it fits and doesn't have the "piece of pie" that that G60 has.

Re: TB porting (OttawaG60)

The smaller butterfly is the primary, it's the one you'll use most of the time while you're driving... it's not the boost bypass (that's underneath the TB, facing downward). The primary is used by itself until half throttle, then the secondary (larger one) begins to open until both are completely open at full throttle. I wanted to increase throttle response at part throttle too, and it worked well... the car is actually a bit twitchy now... I got used to the throttle being very sensitive, but when I let other people drive it, it's funny... they barely touch the throttle and the car jumps (lol). Takes a light touch.. very nice.
For those holes in the plate, I used a high temp JB Weld epoxy that Kushan had used to plug a leak in his 944 (the midengine 400c.i. blown/nitroused monster that ran 10's in street trim, you may have seen on the cover of Turbo magazine a few times) when his intake manifold cracked. I figured if it could stand those conditions, it would be fine in my TB. I did it rivet style, with a plug through the hole that I then flattened on both sides of the plate and then sanded smooth with the dremel so there was enough flash on either side to keep it in place securely.
The A2 8V GTi plate *is* a MUCH better and safer way to do it though!!! I just didn't have one handy when my TB was out and I was doing this. Made do.

Re: TB porting (g60racer)

Was the main inlet bored out before you commenced the tapering? if so, to what diameter?
I'm just in the process of working my TB so this post is perfectly timed
nice job man.

Re: TB porting (g60_c)

So what is the advantage of the flat plate vs. the one with holes..?
And does anyone have a throttle body they want to part with..

Re: TB porting (dontouch)

If you just remove the wedge and fill the holes with something, you are running the risk that your hole plugs will fall out and get in to the engine, either bending valves or damaging pistons.

Re: TB porting (SaabFan)

ok... what do you guys use to clean the whole thing up?.. get all the sh!t off it... will a generic oil/grease remover, like the castrol superclean.. ro whatever it is... work? or.. is there something specific i should look for? i just don't wanna use anything that might potentially damage the TB material.. thanks all!

Yes, as I said
"The A2 8V GTi plate *is* a MUCH better and safer way to do it though!!! I just didn't have one handy when my TB was out and I was doing this. Made do."
Key in on this people, if it's not something you HAVE to get done today, then go get an 8V GTi plate and sock it in there... much safer. I haven't had probs with mine, but no need to risk your motors if there's no need to risk your motors needlessly. Got it? Or do I need to redundantly repeat myself over and over again repetitively?

Re: TB porting (g60racer)

Hey Brendan, what was that you were saying about . . umm. . . a different plate or something?
Oh, and what do I use to fill in the holes where the wedge attached?

Re: TB porting (g60racer)

Ok maybe i didnt write my last post the correct way ..?

What are all the g60 owners gaining from the solid plate vs. the stock one ? Is the stock one restricting us somehow ?
Its obvious the gains on the porting but the butterfly, i have know clue ..

Also,, has anyone done an actual test on one of these after the port and polish..? (DYNO?)

Re: TB porting (dontouch)

ok.. by using the solid plate (A2 8V engines) you are removing that HUGE restrictor wedge, thus allowing air to flow more freely through the TB. freer flowing air means a better throttle response. Now, as for just taking that wedge off, and leaving the holes unplugged... bbbbaaaaaddddd.... that will leave you with a "leaky" butterfly, which will never be able to kickdown into the "idle" mode, as it will be allowing lots of air through, which it won't want. So, unless you want to use JB Weld, or soemthing similar, and take the chance of littel pieces flying off and becoming embedded in your engine, you just hit a junkyard up, and buy an 8V TB, and source the butterfly off it. Then, you port the hell outta your TB
