70mm Throttle Body Does Not Fit - 3 Weeks Ago

Hey guys,

Has anyone had any issues fitting a larger 70mm throttle body on an XCharger? This thing is so big that the TPS sensor is being smashed into the supercharger. In addition, I believe there is an air leak due to imprper fitment- I really had to smash it in place to make it fit.

Im hoping I'm not the only one who has dealt with this problem. I can't take 100% advantage of forced induction if an upgraded TB won't fit!

Here's some pics:

I've run a BBK TB on my X. Honestly, it's not worth the effort. I ended up having to order a older style TPS and shave it down. All of that and the car wasn't any faster. My 1/4mi times and trap speeds were nearly identical before and after. Also, when I started doing open track events the TB started throwing the car into LIMP mode. I replaced it with a rebuilt stock one and called it a day.

The stock TB flows plenty with this setup. IME there is nothing to be gained from a larger throttle body other than a more lively accelerator pedal.(which could be easily written into a tun)

I don't have any personal experience with this but you could try having a shop port you factory throttle body...
