  • Green NA hardtop on 120 Loop

    On my way to class last night I was passed by a green NA sporting a hard top, roll bar, stripes, gumballs on the doors, and a dual center exit exhaust. Loud as hell, dirty as hell, and the mufflers were so big in diameter they had to be dragging on the ground.

    Thats "Fooshnickens", works at RSpeed and is a cr.net mod.
    The exhaust is a St May and they do hang way too low. ;)

      :lol: Yup, that's Taylor. Wonder if the loud you were hearing was the exhaust or the IRTBs?

              no idea. Individual Runner TBs maybe? I always called them ITBs.

                Because that's the correct terminology. They're Individual (or Independent) Runner Throttle Bodies. People call them ITBs as well, but that's technically not correct.

                    I said technically not correct because the correct term for them has the word
                    "Runner" in it, thus IRTBs.

                        hey, i got mine for a G, and I call them ITB's. I own them so that means i'm automatically right. also for further clarification, I'm also pretty sure fooshnickens has '4thrttls' or something on his license plate

                            I have been always told, ITB are for cars that have Individual Throttle Bodies but all feed from a plenum such as a stock M3 or GTR, and IRTB are for cars that are not using a plenum and each have there only INDIVIDUAL runners not contected to the others.

                              M3s, GTR, etc, all have individual runners....... So, you just disproved your own 'theory'.

                              Also, I don't really care either way what you call them. We all know what they are ;)
