        Semi random question. Will 2 inch pipe work be a restriction for us? Going for bigger power I mean. Say 200+ at the wheels. I know throttle body plays a part in this. Or would 2 inch all the way through be ok

          In short no. The stock throttle body size, will happily flow more than 400hp.
          The only time I'd say to upgrade both, would be if you are running a turbo with an outlet larger than 2", as far as I am aware, nobody on this site is doing that.

          2" pipes are more than enough for 200kw+

            sweet. i know my old forge pipes were bigger then 2 inch but at the joiners they bottle necked back down. either way thats good news cause i can't be fucked buying a new throttle body

              Yep, you'll be fine. Can always port the stock throttle body if need be. Especially if you get a head like Jems.

                Mmmhhhmmm. The 3 Rs place in Japan does a + 2.5mm job to take the 45mm throttle to 47.5mm with an oversized butterfly, which ought to give 11.4% more flow for the same velocity. Runuts do you think that would be the limit for porting or bigger still?

                  I think the limiting factor for almost everyone is turbo choice. Once big power is being pursued, sure, significant improvements are available with a larger throttle body. However, til that point, I think money is best spent in other areas.

                    I could be mistaken, but it looks like you ploished the inlet side? I have always been taught to not go crazy with smoothness on the inlet side as it can cause the fuel to bead on the walls of the head. This seems to be quite smooth to me.

                      It's not polished. Far from it. I used to polish the exhaust, literally like a mirror, but found no measurable gains.

                        Fair enough. At least there are no dags and it looks like it would flow a bit better. The dividers look to have been given more of a knife edge too, correct? What head is this if you don't mind me asking?

                          It's quite extensive work there. It's a Colt head, Jems actually.

                            Care to spill the beans on what's been done? I'm guessing a bit of "Abrasive media" has been forced through there

                              Custom larger exhaust and inlet valves, custom guides to suit. Due to the larger valve, quite a lot of port work could be achieved. It's really quite a nice head. All porting was done by hand, with a die grinder.
