Spiffing Up Throttle Body and Big VAM?
« on: January 15, 2013, 05:56:27 PM »
What is the proper way to spiff up a dingy 65mm throttle body without ruining that special coating?


Also is there any advice on spiffing up a big VAM? Thanks!

I've had the same thought for when I do my wagon.  I'm gonna try mounting my VAM behind the inner fender as well as my intercooler tubing. I'm gonna paint the TB body color & have the intake polished. I think that should make it pop.

Bead blast and high temp clear.

Ditch the vam , Get a moates and a 70mm maf.
