Tb/Plenum.. they give a lot more horsepower than just UDP's.. UDPs give at the most 10-15hp (from what the magazine adds claim), but TB/Plenum give about 20-30 (also the magazines claim).. correct me if im wrong..

LOL that would be something. I don't even think it adds much HP at all., but it definately increases throttle response.

T/B plenum, U/D pulleys are a waste of money

i would do tb/plenum, from what ive read depending on the combo you should get around 8rw. whatever you do make sure you get a 75mm tb.

i personaly will never get udp's... because i havnt ruled out s/c for my car and you cant run udp's with a blower.

HAHA, I would love to see 20-30 horsepower from a tb/plenum. At the most tb/plenum will give you about 3-4 hp, but it will improve throttle response a wholeeee lot!
