ok king bores out your stock tb, and spoon is an oem bored TB... where is the waste of money. My TB was bored by Inline four, and the TPS came cracked and not working so i got a new tps(not an easy task), now this one is also readin WAY out of range, so i'm going ot cut my loses, and just buy the spoon with all new sensors.

sounds good except a few things. like what RSXType-Smoking said, just get the Kingmotorsports one and have it bored out to edos specs. is the ACT 6 plate really needed? i would get a Exedy Sage 1 and fly wheel. ground controls :thumbsdow, just save up and get the Tanabes for a few bills more. basically heres what i would have done.

toda engine kit======================>N2
Jackson racing header================> Toda race
RS*R exmag exhaust=================> :thumbsup:
act 6 plate clutch====================> Exedy stage 1
flywheel============================> Exedy
ground control's=======================> something better i.e Tanabe's or Tein SS
spoon throttle body====================> kingmotorsports
yokohoma avs es tires===================> Azenis ( are these for stock rims?)
chamber kit===========================> SPC

since you're spending all this money you might as well get something better for just a few bills more IMHO. but hey its your money and as long as your happy right? :thumbsup:

Kings one is olny 150 dollars.Its enlarged 4 mm.Anew throttle plate installed and body bore is tapered,enlarged and polished to fit and its bead blasted and tps reset
Its 500 for the spoon and defitnitly not as good as king's does

yeahi'm not sure on what chamber kit to go with. the reason i'm going with the JR header is because with the extra cash i can get the tires and the ground control... both tiens and toda header are more like a 1000 dollars differance. thats not a few more bills. and i'm def getting hte NI cams. like i siad before i could get the bore but mine is bored and already fucked up thanks to inlinefour soooooooo 500 for a complete throttle body from spoon is cheaper than 770 from acura. and thank you for the sugestion on the clutch, i wasn't very sure on which clutch to get.

i did and they blamed it on UPS nad UPS blames it on them so no one takes the blame... and finding a TB is not an easy task. it took almost three weeks just to find a sensor.

Here's what i suggest dude
Toda n2 kit.
I would try to find a comptech race header at nice of a price the jackson is it is a supercharger header and not designed for the same purpose as toda or comptech plus the comps come with the energy motor mounts if you dont already.
Rs*r is nice if your looking for the sleeper look.
Exedy cerametallic stage 2 with flywheel.IF you get the exedy flywheel get the clutch also dont mix and match.
I would go for a set of full bodied coilover's but if you on a budget go for the ground control's and try to get some koni adjustables at least.
Your hell bent on the spoon tb but like i said look around on the boards and find a used one to send to kings.
Falken azenis
And i hve no probs with my ingall's camber kit get the polyurethane
O and i would add a rear sway to this list also
If you want instead of toda you can get itr cams,mugen double valvesprings,and mugen n1 ecu you'll save some extra money.

I've got the RS*R ExMag and its a great exhaust - but its 2.25" piping. Correct me if I'm wrong, but with the Toda engine kit and a racing header, wouldn't larger piping help him out more? Like a 2.36" or 2.5"? Maybe I'm off-base, but I'm not making nearly as much power as he's going to; hence, the reason why I'm running a ExMag.

dude if find a tb was that easy it would have been done. but it's not. i combed the boards none stop everyday for over 3 weeks just to find a sensor. which infact i never found a good friend of mine did. now i'm not hell bent on getting it i'm jsut tired of my car running like complete shit and waiting. so i'm cutting my loses and just going to spend the money and get my car back to running like it should.
