So, you are absolutely right. BTW, the tip in improvement is due to power gains at part throttle. Notice when you come right off idle you are using very few HP's in the (10's) if you get a few more HP's there they mean a lot percentage wise. This is what I'd really like to Dyno.
I agree, accept for the amount of HP;From my seat of the pants experience with ported TBs the 'off idle' improvement takes more than just a 'few HP' moving a 3600 lb. plus with driver car and from what I read this new one is even better.

I have tried the Katech (with the machine down throttle shaft and CNC porting) which I added additional porting too and I also tried a 'out of the box' ZR1 95 mm throttle body with the adapter/spacer (no check engine light with either) looking for 'improved performance' in the 1/4 mile, Well I was wrong! So I reinstalled the stocker to go with the factory tune. I have an A8 so I really did not have a stumble problem, just needed to apply more pedal if I wanted to accelerate faster. However I have to say that both TBs 'delivered' on the off idle performance.

Makes sense, all the aftermarket PTB's we reverse engineered do not react until you hit about 25% throttle, ours react right off idle. Those grooves you see in our design running axially go down to find the blade down low and give the engine some extra air right off idle.

Exactly! I put mine on yesterday, didn't do any reset, just jumped in the car and began to drive it. I noticed a considerable difference within 30 or 40 miles. Transformed the car nearly instantly. Over the next couple of weeks, I anticipate that it will only get better. WELL worth the price of entry!!!
