I use the Zabteck TB with my X-Charger. nav dyno'd it with his X and saw 8 rwhp gain if I remember right.

TB's on NA engines are worthless.

I think I would need more feedback on a TB for FI applications.

I have the Zabtek with the X-Charger, never dynoed it, but Nav did get 7 rwhp with it and about the same amount of torque. On the other hand another person had the same setup and only got 1 rwhp. So there's your window! 1 to 7 rwhp....it may depend on the tuner also. It's not bad for the money though. It really helped my throttle response at least, plus I did the throttle body bypass and it cleaned up that as well.

I don't have the tb bypass since mine is an 07, but I do get a whistle when I accelerate from the butterfly valve being part way open. I wondered if it is the x-charger valve or the TB valve. *shrug*
