a little story id thought id share, went to fiats in croydon today and asked for a throttle body to send to tricker, i was shocked when the assistant said £200. but that was a re-con one and a new one retails at £301. now is it me or is that daylight robbery? anyway then i went to a fiat scrappy in brixton and got quoted £40 so i thought i save £160 anyway, why not. Why is it soo expensive from fiat? anyway heres the question, which part of the throttle body do i send off to tricker because theres two parts, the top or bottom? and does this look ok to you?

Its the bottom bit you need to send the piece with the butterfly

just for anyone else who's thinking of a 40mm TB Its always worth emailing Tricker as he might have one he can supply save you hunting the scrappies I got one straight from him £130 delivered

€120 + €30 post and packing plus the origonal TB

thats about £104 plus the cost of your TB

The GSR kit is £99

to be honest you just have to get both of them thumb:

MPI kits from GSR are 145

However they are currently developing a new GSR kit for the MPI which may see the kit outdo the SPI one, however we would only know if we put the two kits on two similar cars and tested them.

So to answer the question, yes there is an MPI GSR kit but a new one is currently being developed

PM oldschool for further information (y)

i dunno about all that because i only have an ECU for 1 injector so itll be rather expensive to find a engine management system to do all 4 plus a fifth. might interest some MPI owners though like applesei even though he aint really gonna do much more cos his sei aint really long term but deffo worth a look cos tricker hasnt dont an MPI one YET

Hi there

The MPI mrk II TB can be enlarged but the plastic inlet manifold can't, so you wouldn't get anything from a oversized mrk II TB without rebuilding the inlet manifold.

Cheers

We have something under testing at the moment. Unfortunately the restriction of the inlet manifold needs some more attention.
