Professional Products 68mm throttle body

This throttle body doesn't stick at all, like most of the other aftermarket throttle bodies. More throttle response. Hard to say if it actually adds power; it should though.

The polished finish isn't the greatest. But, for the price you pay for it and the performance you gain, it's well worth the money.

I just ordered this throttle body in polished. Jeff Evans told me about the professional products tb because every other tb he has worked with has sticking issues.

I loved my Power throttle body. I also had the 68mm. It worked great. It came with gasket but ive never seen any throttle body come with the TPS. No aftermarket anyways.
I prefer this TB to the S2 or BDL.
Its inexpensive and gets the job done.

The only one ive ever found that comes with a tps is edelbrock, which is a pretty good reputable company as far as quality goes. More leaned towards the old american muscle, but still a great company.

But just as stated above, i also checked out their site and the only ones on there are for teggys? Whats the deal?

Kingmotorsports offers both 65mm and 68mm profession products throttle bodies with or with out a TPS. A little on the expensive side, but they are a reputable dealer. I think one of the only authorized Mugen dealers in the states too.here's the link:http://www.kingmotorsports.com/category.aspx?cat=61

Has anyone actually done back to back testing with bigger TBs in H22s?
I've build several very powerful D-series engines, and always got best results with stock-size 55mm TB, with stock and aftermarket manifolds and very hot cams. 60mm always only killed low/mid-range and there was no noticeable improvement at up top.

But thanks for the review. If/when I need to go bigger TB in my F/H-series engines, PP ones are for sure the ones I look first at. Its not the first time I hear good about them.

You guys want to be ordering the Intagra Type-R one, it bolts right up to our H22 manifolds. It DOES NOT use an FITV just so you know, but they are very good quality for the price.

I can get you guys either the satin or polished for $175+shipping

Heres a pic of the satin finish 68mm...

For the best results, you should plan to mate this to an Aftermarket intake manifold.
