Default Throttle Body Orientation

Is there any reason (wire lengths and bolt holes aside) that I couldn't rotate the throttle throttle body on my RS say 45 degrees. I can't think of any problems it would cause but I wanted to get some feedback.

Its for a supercharger setup FYI.

Why not just use a coupler or tube with a 45-degree bend before the TB? Would be a lot simpler than custom fabbing a spacer.

Whoops... I guess I should have specified 45 degrees on axis. I'm setting it up to pull through the TB rather than blow through so I have to fab up a manifold between the SC inlet and the TB. Things might fit a little easier is I rotate it somewhat.

Okay... now you are confusing me.

What kind of blower are you using? Centrifugal, roots, etc? That will help me to better picture what you are talking about.

It is a roots blower. But that aside, here is a drawing of what I'm asking TB-wise.

What I'm after should be clear now. If not, I'm working on an interpretative dance to try next

Given that I've completely relocated my TB all together, the answer to your question is no, there is no reason why should not be able to rotate your TB. In fact, my relocated TB is literally upside down from oem. It's rotated 180 degrees.

Ah... I see.

No, rotating the TB like that won't make a bit of difference.

What blower are you using? M62?

Cool. Thanks.

I guess I'll save the dance for some other occasion then...

Yep. M62. It's going to be sort of a cross between Skidd's and reddevil's builds. I'm using a lot of the lessons they have learned and been gracious enough to post in detail to keep the headaches to a minimum. Now I just have to stay at home long enough to do more than one weld/braze/oil change/etc. at a time.

Nice... the M62 is a nice unit but watch out, they throw a lot of heat at higher boost levels.

I do have a tiny bit of experience with them....



Have fun!
