Another ITB Question



  182 FF
Plan to go down the ITB route in spring, however one thing is putting me off.. Bonnet catches, can you run ITB's without having to stick bonnet catches on?

*waiting for the "yh course but you will need a new windscreen when the bonnet flys up" comments* :rasp:

I realllly need to pay my membership... cant view the link! What kind of results do you see from your ITB kits? Graphs? :)

+ 30bhp'ish on average. It depends on the health of the stock engine which is why we'll always dyno and comp test a car before starting any work so we know where we are starting from! Having said that Jay and Tonys scrap yard race engine is down 2 bar on one cyl and still makes 197bhp on our kit! Owens car pictured above made 198bhp peak with a great torque curve!

If you PM me your e-mail address I'll send you the PDF for our kit.

Just need to compromise a little induction length really. I personally prefer to use the longest trumpets that will fit in a clio bay, and have some space around the filter/trumpets which you gain by removing the slam panel, but you dont lose an exceptional amount by keeping the stock bits in place. Quite a personal thing building up a car anyway, so there's no need to do it the same every time :)
 
£700 + vat trade :)

Fit them myself

Then coil pack mount, throttle pedal, throttle pedal mount, throttle cable, engine control solution, loom work, calibration, filtration solution, CAN work to avoid a dash full of MILs and a few other bits and bobs...... Simples ;)

Yh I saw this myself not so long back when building an Evo 9 engine, using a Jenvey inlet system using 60mm trumpets over 40mm gained in the region of 20bhp 17ft/lbs on an engine dyno which is rather alot for such a small change!

Indeed :) But its all part of the fun!
 
Without management, have a couple of emeralds lying around at work if they will work with the vvt??? If not mangement will be on top :)

Emerald will work, use the "Shiftlight" output to drive the VVT as it's only a ground side switch. 60-2 on the Clio flywheel isn't conventional 60-2 as such as it has a large double tooth reference after the gap but assuming you have the later Emerald software it'll work with a bit of playing. Good luck calibrating it though, I hate calibrating Emeralds (and we still get one a week!).

No user configurable CAN on Emerald though.
