Hello

Hello,

My name is John, I am a Mechanical Engineer in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.

I am currently building a very high rpm, ITB powered 1995 Ford Probe GT. I am building my own ITB setup and have found that a set of Triumph throttles will be the base of the setup.

I am very active on many online forums, and love to soak up as much information as I can, and I thought this would be a great spot to do so for my setup!

I currently drive a 2002 Nissan Maxima, and have my Probe for my toy.

John

The heads:








The car:



Mind you the bumper is just sitting on there in the picture. I don't have any better pictures of it at the moment.

The run-down is:

12:1 compression
Fully built/lightweight valvetrain
Solid Lash Adjuster conversion
Custom high lift/duration cams
ITBs
External wet sump oiling
electric water pump
custom longtube headers
manual steering rack
etc..


Like I said, I am looking to build a ITB setup, and figured this would be a good place to learn about how these throttles work and ask questions. I hope you don't mind!

Of course! I will be sure to put up pictures of the progress I make on modifying the throttles and such as I go. I just have to find out which ones to use, and how people go about modifying them!...Or perhaps I will just have to mess with them on my own! Any help would be great!
