SKUNK2 - Throttle Body
Skunk2 is proud to introduce its 68mm Pro Series Throttle Body for Mitsubishi’s 4G63 Evo VII-IX engines in its exclusive Black Series, hard anodized finish. Skunk2’s Pro Series Throttle Bodies are designed to be used with Mitsubishi’s OEM intake tubing and intake manifold as well as Skunk2’s Pro Series Intake Manifold for bolt-on horsepower and torque gains by optimizing engine airflow. Skunk2 throttle bodies undergo an extensive design and testing process to produce a unit that doesn’t just provide more flow, but retains smooth drivability and OEM throttle characteristics. Skunk2 Pro-Series Throttle Bodies are designed using the latest CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) tools to produce a unit that exceeds industry standards. Each Pro-Series Throttle Body is CNC-machined from forged, billet 6061-T6 aluminum and hard anodized for durability in Skunk2’s signature Black Series finish. Additionally, Skunk2’s patent-pending IAC (idle air control) allows the factory IAC sensor to be retained, which ensures a stock idle, or to be easily removed and blocked off for racing applications. Skunk2’s unique design also eliminates the OEM coolant outlets for cooler operation and a cleaner appearance and is compatible with the Evo’s OEM throttle cable, which simplifies installation. Each Skunk2 Pro Series Throttle body also features sealed bearings for smooth operation and a genuine, integrated Skunk2 badge. A larger throttle body is key to producing additional power throughout the powerband on turbocharged engines with increased airflow demands. Skunk2 recognized the Evo’s highly restrictive throttle body and developed the largest bore unit that remains compatible with the OEM intake manifold. Skunk2’s Pro Series Throttle Bodies for Evo engines feature a 68mm bore, which results in an increase of more than eight hp throughout the powerband.
