Does anybody know any information on swapping throttle bodys on 94 integra ls. I heard that the longer the throttle body the more hp you get. What does boring out mean? Also what is the price range for doing these things?

I believe boring is when you increase the liter's of the cylinders. Like people bore out their b16 to 1.8 liters. Just make them bigger I suppose.

Your talking about a throttle body spacer?

IF so, its prurpose is to create a whirling effect of air which creates better fuel atomization...IMO,bullshit:p

Heres an example:


IMO, switching to a longer TB will not increase performance, yet increasing the diamter of the TB by boring it to a larger diameter will in some what create more airflow and better throttle response...the only way to determone the correct size for max gains is by taking into consideration;intake diameter size, port matching and IM size plays a role in whether power will be gained or lossed.
