    Anyone had any experience with this? Is it street legal, I know the TB is but how about the plenum? Would I have any idle issues,etc.? What are the power gains?

    Thx

    Yes you will have idle issues, no you will not feel any power gains.

    So... what are you guys saying...? "No, they are not illegal" or "Yes, they are legal"....?

    And what about gains....? Will you feel something by the seat of your pants or will your pants fill your seat with something....? Or will nothing happen in your cheap pants? And where's the best place to get work pants?

    I like my TB. :chair:

    there should be no SotP gains, but throttle response long with mid range breathing will be noticable.

    I'd avoid PP at all costs. If you need cheap go with a plenum like Dragon.

    If you want the best (flow chart proven) Accufab 100%

    The Professional Products "Power" tb/plenum are great for the money. Only thing "better" would be accufab, and in that case only because of the finish. Mechanically most tb/plenums are created equally.

    you should already have a 70mm t-body from the factory. the plenum will add a small amount of power. 4-6rwhp. there will be no idle issues. just reset the computer.
