Hello- my big bore throttle body just shipped in. It's a stock piece that was bored out 5ml. It's going on a 2013 Sportage SX. Should be a direct swap.I am looking to make the swap next week.
I am guessing the plastic engine 'cover' just pops off.
Anyone else that has made the swap have hints/details/suggestions?

I'll be interested to see the results when you get it installed. Rather than a boost in total H P, I would think that you will get more initial throttle response. Sort of the same results you would get from using a "Pedal Commander".
And yes the engine cover just pop's up. Keep us informed with your outcome.

Thanks Oldsport. Up til now, it's just chipped and filtered (nice turbo sound) so I'll be happy with whatever the bonus is. Will do.

Are your injectors able to add the extra fuel to match the extra air being supplied?
