Skunk2 70mm TB Question!

Ok, I just ordered up myself a S2 70mm TB with a Thermal 70mm TB gasket. Then I was told that the S2 70mm TB sometimes sticks... is this true? I just want to verify this.

Anyone else running the same TB?? whats your opinion?

Re: Skunk2 70mm TB Question!

sticks on both cars Ive come in contact with that have them...

Purchase a professional products Type R throttle body if you want a larger one.

Of course, will a throttle body show any gains? NO. not really as you will suffer loss in low end torque. The gains are noticable on a tuned fully built car that moves more air than your stock application. Will putting the skunk2 on cause many headaches in your future? YES!

Ive got a buddy who drag races his 4th gen and 1/5 races he has to shut the car down in the middle of the track because the throttle body is stuck open.. Of course, getting it to open is also a PITA.

Well, I bought it used from a guy off ebay. I remember seeing his Policy saying "No Return."

I read Skunk2's PDF installation and Troubleshooting. They say to tighten the screw for the butterfly to where it won't stick. So, that might solve the problem and they say if it sticks while staying around 2-3K RPM then it needs a new return spring.

Its fine; I wanted a 70mm TB anyway. haha.

Re: Skunk2 70mm TB Question!

i have a s2 70mm and modified it w/ a 8mm longer bolt and nut. adjust it to 1100-1200 rpm at cold idle and it shouldn't stick. i did that w/ mine and it hasn't stuck in awhile. when i first put it on ... it did quite a few times. just do it to the tb when is off the manifold its really easy.

What do you mean longer bolt? where would I put that on the TB?

Where do I adjust the TB to go up that high of 1100-1200 rpm?? Idle screw? Mine barely go past 1.5K on the stock TB when the idle screw is all the way out.

Well, I'll have to install it first to see if mine sticks. If it does, I heard the bore area where the butterly relaxes at isn't smooth. A buddy told me that I can sand it down to smoothen it so the butterly doesn't stick.

We'll see how it goes after I install it.

Re: Skunk2 70mm TB Question!

rosko has already been there and done that with the skunk2 throttle and he is a machinist. the whole reason i couldn't use the skunk2 TB in my intake manifold testing was because of the skunk2 throttle messing up.

I wonder if he can fix the problem. I'll probably end up selling it, so I can get myself a 68mm TB if it does stick.

right by the rotor, where the cable goes to turn the throttle plate, on the underside is a small allen key screw w/ a locking nut. your replace that with the long 8mm bolt and nut that i am talking about. you can adjust your idle that w/ that 8mm bolt by opening up the throttle at a cold idle by tightening the 8mm bolt. hence letting a little more air in, higher idle, but it won't let the plate close all the way in which it gets stuck. you already paid for it, you ll never get back what you paid. you might as well use it, or attempt to use it. if you need more help or more an explaination on this please just pm me. i have had one mine for at least 8 months now and in the beginning it would get stuck but since i've modded mine i haven't had the same problem.
hope this helps.

So have I. Ive got about 8 hours in modifying one to make it not stick.. Now, it only sticks wide open... Much better than closed, part, further, or full.. But, full is the most PITA of the 4 to have. And thats a binding in valve part thats just not worth the effort to try to fix it...

Ah Ok, I see what you're saying now. Thanks again. I'll try to do this if I find that it does stick.

Not if you fix it right the first the first time.

well anything aftermarket is NOT OEM so you can't expect a bolt on product to be perfect though. it does suck they we do pay alot of money for these bolt ons and yes you shouldn't have to "fix" something that is supposed to be a bolted right up. i am just saying he already spent the money.. he might as well give it a try... if he doesn't like it he can always sell it?

i made mine work... i got mine as part of a trade so it was worth fixing it. i figured why not??? my skunk 2 manifold made me 20 more hp so i am hoping now w/ the 70mm tb i should make some more.

either way good luck w/ it hope it works out.

agreed! And by fix, he means RIG...

Honestly, rigging the throttle body part way open isnt what I would call a fix.. It does work and works well.. Ive done what you speak of myself because I dont run a FITV or IACV, and the only vacuum lines I have coming off my manifold are for the brake booster, boost lines, and FPR. But, it doesnt come down off of power nearly as quickly as a fully shut throttle. Its rigging it in my book.

Re: Skunk2 70mm TB Question!

Ok, the TB seems to close and open smoothly without any sticking at all as I was studying the Butterfly movement. But I encounter something today though.

My concern is this:





There's still that open spot thats not covered by the gasket and it will be expose. I believe that port is for the MAP sensor. Will I have vacuum leak then?

Also, the Thermal gasket is this thick. I know for a fact that the TB won't be able to touch the IM with a gasket that thick:



Here it is w/o the gasket:



It leads the port back to the Butterfly bore.

What can I do to make this work?

Re: Skunk2 70mm TB Question!

i do believe that it gets covered by the intake manifold... i don't understand why the gasket doesn't cover it. i don't even have a gasket on mine to be completely honest. i tried making a couple and it never seemed to work out to well. so i just ended up smoothing out the intake manifold surface and torque the tb down. i don't have a vacuum leak at all. stock intake mani of sk2 intake mani?

Re: Skunk2 70mm TB Question!

Stock mani, and I'm going to have it port match for smoother air flow. I've ordered a gasket from Rosko and his gasket seems to be bigger on the outside which will cover everything on the TB.

Re: Skunk2 70mm TB Question!

Thanks, I should receive rosko's TB gasket tomorrow. I can't wait to get it install. My buddy who has a RHD converted H22 EF has a S2 70mm TB installed in his and he can totally feel the difference on topend, but he's got the intake mani port match to his TB.

Is that like a 68mm spacer then? and what do you mean by 74mm inlet?

its a tapered TB. it has a 68mm throttle plate (the bronze thing) and the inlet the intake tubing attaches to is 74mm.

i actually take that back, although it didnt make any more power, it didn't lose any as well. It just let the engine rev a bit easier/quicker while out of gear. I'll have to go back and look but i think it screwed up my part throttle tune (from the previous s2000 TB) and i had to add a little more fuel up top.
