    Which one are you looking at on the page? The link pulls up the whole list.

    As far as gains, not sure. Unless you have intake/exhaust mods that will utilize a bigger TB then I think it would. The biggest area of improvement though would be a 3 angle valve job as 9/10 times your valves are the biggest restrictive area for air flow but pulling a head is far from worth it just to get valve work done on a DD.

    As far as I know none of those TB's will fit your car or work properly with the DBW system on it. A few people have sent their TB off to maxbore to have it enlarged. The IM is definitely a choke point on these engines. Weapon-R made the only aftermarket IM that I know of for the R18. I don't know if it would fit the 2012+ cars but I suspect it would. It's also hard to find and pretty expensive.

    I haven't looked at your build in a while but have you gotten/looked into the new RV6 DP that's available? Or have you already replaced that part?

    vitviper has repeatedly said that at least on the k series motors that you're lucky to gain 2-3hp with a larger throttle body on naturally aspirated engines.

    And those gains are right at/near redline.

    If you're really set on staying NA, look for the weapon-R intake manifold. If you're going SC with the jackson or KW kit, it'll still help a ton. hahaha. Cams are available but very hard to find. The are drop in so you won't need a valve train upgrade to run them but the gains are pretty minimal.

    Seriously though, if you are keeping the car the KW kit is awesome. Just needs to be a 5-speed for it all to fit with the IC piping. The Jackson kit was designed to run reliably and very well with all stock parts so having the upgraded dp/exhaust is going to be great for power. If you are shooting for mid-200's I think thats very do-able without having to upgrade the transmission.

    IF you do decide to get into the trans at all, there are 2 LSD's that should fit your car.
