wats it off? coz u wont get 85mm out of a vn tb.

i think itd be close to overkill, but if u can get it cheap, organise a dynorun and try stock then 85mm, see what it does.

got any other mods to justify it?

It shouldnt make any major difference to idle...

But the biggest you can get out of a VN throttle body is 71mm... So I dont think its gonna fit your car man, unless its a full custom throttle body.

I have seen a 90mm custom on a VN before.

The 90mm ones ar from Starr Performance. They only fit on because of the customised neck welded on to the factory inlet manifold.
I cant see how you will fit this throttle body on mate.........

I actually saw the 90mm one on a V6 VN with a custom intake manifold. Was probably Starr Performance yeah..
