67mm TB Question

Well i have had mine on for about 3 months.. And have been told it will jump me up to a higher class when i AX. Is it really worth having on ? i Dont feel a performance gain at all... and i heard it actually makes things worse with the lip. Should i take it off and sell it?

worse with the lip?


it sure isnt an advantage unless you cant keep up with the folks in the upper class. if it does indeed bump you into a higher class and if you AX every weekend, i would sell it.

I don't see a tune? You should get a tune from Tom. That will change your mind.

The ORP will likely put you in the same auto-X class as the tb, for SCCA either mod would put a car in DSP.

Yep. you need to get rid of that lip... it makes a very noticeable difference, at least on my SVT it did. I barely noticed anything from the 67mm TB just by bolting it on.
