The ECS Billet Aluminum Throttle Body Boost Tap Kit conveniently adds two boost / vacuum ports to your Gen3 engine for any of your specific needs. Located between the intake manifold and throttle body, this location provides a strong pneumatic signal and allows for a completely reversible install.
Through multiple design revisions and product testing, our team of engineers found that other methods of acquiring a manifold signal, such as spacing the MAP / IAT sensor on top of the intake manifold, lead to skewed data being transmitted to the ECU. We found that intake air temperatures were reading lower (15-20° F at WOT), ignition timing was off (as much as -5°) and air /fuel ratio was richer (+1.0 point by 5,000 RPM). This directly translated into engine power dropping by as much as 6 WHP on an untuned vehicle!
You can be certain that all critical data is not affected and your engine’s ECU has all of its valuable information to properly adjust timing and fuel with our leading edge design! Engineered specifically for the Gen3 engine, we designed our Throttle Body Boost Tap with 2 ports, so you have multiple options to provide the strongest manifold signal to either your boost gauge, blow off valve, water meth switch or any other pneumatic device.
