I have tuned them as well , many of them , I think he had a Vac leak some where , went back to stock TB and his lean issue went away
I still dont understand people still adding the larger TB since it doesnt add HP or TQ and please dont say it adds better throttle response , for better throttle response you have to increase TQ and on the dyno from 1800 to 7000rpm it didnt
I have dyno tested 2 different Throttle bodies on 2 different MK3 a 65mm and a 70mm neither showed any gains from 1800 to 7000
Im just telling you what the Dyno said its doing or what its not doing in this case
I have a true story I like to tell , a guy brought in a Camaro for me to dyno , install UDP and redyno , he dropped the car off in the morning , told me everything was in the front seat , It took much longer with the car I was working on and didnt get to his Camaro , I took the parts out earlier to look at them and when I saw I wouldnt have time i put the parts in the trunk , Customer came and I told him I didnt finish it and he drove the Camaro home and back the next morning telling me how much better his Camaro felt through out the RPM range and the UDP were worth every penny , I opened the trunk and showed him I had not installed them and he was shocked to say the least
Well, to be fair, your example is of a Camaro owner.... they always think their car is faster no matter what is or isn't done. Way back in the early 90's when my friends and I were driving Fox Mustangs, a new kid rolls into town in a newer RS Camaro with a 5.0 and was sitting with his buddies in our normal parking lot gathering place. We overheard him talking about how fast his car was because it had a "turbo". All of us being curious asked him to open the hood so we could see it. He did, and proudly pointed to the alternator as his mighty turbocharger and claimed how he regularly dusts mustangs and corvettes alike.
Anyone have any ideas on where to get some for the mk3? Or any aftermarket upgrades besides the sts and bracket & the clutch? I’m gonna need to do something with my syncros soon.

My car puked out enough coolant yesterday morning to completely drain the reservoir. It seems like 95% of what came out ended up on top of the transaxle case. I assume the leak must be fairly large because it only took about 5 minutes of driving for this to happen, and it was loud enough that I...
