no your stuck with the one that you have. unless you want to fork up +3k for ITBs. Search up Dbilas for the ITBs.

Or another option is something custom. Motorcycle throttle bodies??

How about something like this.







Its a simple design, I would probably change a few things with the design if I was using it for N/A but works good with boost.

that intake manifold will hurt the performance on an N/A motor.

Stick with the stock manifold until u ready to boost.

The angle is so it can clear the brake booster.

+1...even with FI motor, it really hurts the torque, but that's what I was after, I wanted to keep the HP and TQ similar and it seems to be doing that great.
