I was on the Shark Racing website, and saw the aftermarket throttle bodies they have for the 95-99 Accent. Has anyone bought one of these and installed on their car? I'm curious as to weather they really do increase performance, cos if they do, I want one...
Can anyone tell me if it's worth it, and is Shark Racing good to do business with?
Thanks,
Chris.

Sharkracing is a company you can trust.

As far as getting the TB you will get a small gain. You will see more after matching the intake manifold to the TB.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Shark racing is a#1

But I chose to upgrade my throttle body from that of the tibb!

It wasn't that hard to do to make it fit on the accent intake and it works great! and talk about size difference the tibb TB is twice the size of the stock accent TB!

Just some minor mods and it works great got it for $20 bucks from the junk yard and didn't even have to change TP sensor!

Don't worry about matching the the intake the factory accent intake is large enough for the upgraded TB! at least it was for the TB I installed!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Thanks for the replies, guys... I'm glad Shark Racing is good to deal with, as it's the first place I've come across that actually sells aftermarket stuff for the Accent. I think I will seriously look into a new TB in one form or another.

Accent1, what did you have to modify to make the Tib TB fit your Accent? That looks like a much more attractive (meaning affordable!) option as I don't care about looks, I just want more "go".
Do the bolts line up? A review of the Shark Racing TB said some small mods were needed for a throttle cable bracket and a breather filter... is installing a Tib TB that simple too?
If you could tell me what you did to make it fit, I would really appreciate it!
Thanks, Chris.

also accent1, what year is your Accent, and what year tib did you use?

And would it matter if the Tib's tb had cruise control or not if your accent doesnt?

Hey man! The TB doesen't really matter I would shy away from the one with cruise control not sure how the hook up for the TB are!
My accent is a 97.
The main thing that I had to do was line up the holes on the bigger TB with the ones from my stock one and then drill new holes in the Tibb TB and then it will work!
I just I balled the openings of the two TB's and then used visegrips to hold them together then used the accentTB as the pilot holes for the tibb TB!
I also had to disconnect the two water lines from the stock TB and join them together cause the tibb unit doesn't have provisions for them.
I had to add an extra length to my intake hose to use my vent tube again the tibb not equip!
Last but not least I had to buy longer bolts to move my throttle cable out about an inch to alow proper alighnment! I just used washers as spacers and it works good!
It may sound like alot of work but it really isn't I installed it in no time at all!

Here's a link to a pic of my engine you can see the TB and the extra intake pipe for the conn. It is the rubber unit infron't of the TB!

Wow, thanks for the description! BTW, love what you've done with the engine, the gray and red looks good in there. Are those sections of plastic house piping you used for your CAI?
I will be checking out the scrap yards for a Tib TB....

I was gonna ask that very question... thanks. I figured it would be the same but thanks for the clarification.
And yeah, I would like the layout for your CAI. I tried to come up with a way to do one last summer but thought it would be too complicated, but now that I see someone else has one, I'd like to try it.
If you could let me know how you did it, that would be great!
Chris.

Hey Lobert, don't think of it! It does not fit at all. You have to relocate the idle actuator, drill holes in your intake.... and the worst thing is that the intake hole size is to small, and ther is no space to oversize it. And you may lost power..... isn't a good idea. On previous x3, it takes about 1 hour to fit a 2.0L TB, The intake has the same hole size as the 2.0L TB!!! And you may have some gain on torque at high RPM.

Hey... I sent you an e-mail back, but in case you check on here first, thanks for the pics and instructions. They look very clear and easy to follow.
Now all I need to do is find a TB and wait for warmer weather!
