ITB's for an D16Z6



#1
I'm looking at Skunk 2 ITB's for my D series I just wanted to know what's the power ratio I'm looking at gaining by doing this, I mean if I'm gonna drop $1300 on these things I better be getting some back out of my buck, I've also looked at an jackson racing supercharger as well, boost is always an option as well, but I think it's overrated. if you guys could let me know how much power I'll gain or if it's even worth spending the $1300 that'd be awesome.
Thanks

Skunk2 makes a variety of sizes of ITB's.

and yes boost is overrated, everyone boost their cars. I wanna have something different.
Where are you finding this. I don't see them on there website or anywhere else.

You need to figure out what it is that you are actually going for before you go out and spend a bunch of money. You mention considering a supercharger but also that boost is overrated referring to a turbocharger. Superchargers and turbochargers are both considered boost. Why is turbo overrated? It's the most popular and maybe overdone but it's not overrated. It works, other than nitrous it's the best bang for your buck. Superchargers are a good option as well, you well get less power than a turbocharger but still a considerable gain and should be more reliable. ITB's are an option but probably the most impractical of all. The car will be harder to tune than turbo or supercharged and are illegal almost everywhere (if not everywhere). What do you have done to your car now? I'm guessing that there are things that would need to be done before jumping right into forced induction anyways.

Not that I'm recommending it, since I agree with what everyone else has told you here, but there is a(actual) ITB manufactured for the Z6 head. Here:

That's a big price tag for a tiny weeny little bit of performance. Although, they do usually look pretty cool. I say, get over your aversion to turbo chargers and save your money.

Besides that they wont gain you near the same as boost itb's are very hard to tune alot harder than boost to the point where some poeple have said when the weather outside changes the tune needs to be changed. Do some reaserch figure out your power goals budget and mechanical abilty and then decide on what you want to go with boost etc whatever it may be
