    Well i got my tb back from MaxBore. It looks like they have done everything that they promised to do on there websit. The whole tb itself was cleaned and looks brand new. The bottom was opened to 58 mm and the top was opened to about 68 mm. A new brass butterfly was put in and they polished the inside so nice i can almost see myself in it. Overall price with shipping $135 No core chare or any of that bs. He said this was the first zx2 tb he has done. I will post some pics as soon as i can but if you are looking into gettin this done to your tb I would highly recomend checking these guys out. MAXBORE.COM

    Unfortunitly i wont be able to see the performance till the snow goes away

    Yes the new butterfly looks correct. Everything they did looks very profesional you can tell it was not done in someones backyard. As soon as i find my camera i will get the pics up. They actually garuntee that the tb will work and they garuntee there workmanship so if anything goes wrong with anything that they did you can send it back and they will fix it.

    Those pictures of the TB look good. Looks like they did a good job on it. I wonder if somebody requested a tapered bore if they would be able to do it. That would eliminate the lip. I guess a few minutes with a dremel and a carbide bit would do the trick as well. I'm anxious to see how you like it when you finally get it on your car...

    To tell you the truth i did so much other stuff with my engine build along with this that i could not give you a good review. But i can tell you that they did a very nice job and if you are thinkin about doin it i would go with them.

    I felt a good gain, and I only did the throttle body at the time. Gave me a nice boost in the 5,000 plus range.
