wonder if it would work......

Post by gearbanger4 » Fri Aug 03, 2012 12:35 pm

I was just thinking about the ghetto blaster intake manifolds that can be made relatively easily and inexpensive, but I wonder if it could be taken a step further to create what might be dubbed a "ghetto blaster" ITB setup?

Obviously the only way to know is to try? And I would guess at some point maybe somebody has....

You could start with a plastic sohc intake and cut the runners just as you would a ghetto blaster, but instead use a long flat piece of plastic (1/2 inch?) that you would drill holes and mount 4 tb's on (abs? just as the ghetto blaster). plastic weld it to the runners, open up ports and bolt on the tb's.

You would have to make some sort of outside vac source for map sensor and necessary vac lines like a traditional ITB setups. Again, this is obviously ghetto, but would probably be way easier and cheaper to create if it would even function. maybe even just as a "template" for a nicer aluminum itb setup that one would build afterward.

I am just picturing this all in my head, but I could envision using 4 throttle cables somehow running to a single location where they could all open equally by the original throttle cable that runs to the pedal.....so you would have to make/modify cables also.

hmmm.....

A common throttle shaft would be simpler.

good point, thought about that as well.

sourcing or making a specific shaft that would work might be a little difficult, but I suppose so would trying to build a cable system to synchronize the opening of 4 tb's...
