Your intake manifold is already designed for maximum flow. It's simlilar to the suzuki cultus intake. But a restriction is the stock throttle body it was just designed for fuel economy. What you can do is bore out your throttle body intake with a machine and port match the intake hole on your intake side. I've done mine to 55mm, but I only have the 50mm throttle body [from suzuki esteem] on there now as the one I hooked up did not have a perfect seal and so my idle speed was like at 2K lol.
Suzuki RD sells bigger ones, also there is a website called maxbore which does a more professional job than what I tried to do at home.

The only similarities between that intake and the Cultus intake is that they're both made of steel. The Esteem TB is 45 not 50.

I used to run a 60mm TB on my '00 Lsi :twisted: It ran very nice. Guess you could search for my old posts if they are still on the forum. I recall I did post a lot of info on what I did to make it fit and function. It took a lot of grinding on the TB flange and I also ground down the bumps in the runners right at the head flange. Mike can set you up with the hardware. I sold my last 60mm TB a year ago I believe. Nothing but the memories left :razz:

I just got done searching my drives here and found those pictures must be on an old drive which I no longer have or it's buried somewhere. It appears this forum went thru a server change or something since my original posts and the uploaded pictures got deleted but the posts were moved over. The last I knew my old '00 Metro was owned by a fellow in Southern Minnesota. I don't know if he is on this forum or not. He used to email me every so often with updates or pictures of the car but I haven't seen an email in a few years and don't remember who he is. About the best advice I can give is call Mike Cove up and see what he can help with.

As far as old parts, I sold off the other 60mm TB last year I believe to someone on this forum. I believe it went to Washington state or Oregon. The Pacific NW anyhow. I have left a stock 16v SOHC cam, a stock set of injectors, fuel rail with harness, and one set of rear stainless braided brake lines left over from the Paragon Performance braided brake line build. There are a couple TB's on the shelf but they are not 60mm and I don't know exactly what I did to make the Nissan TB's fit the 16v SOHC intake, TPS, throttle cable & idle control. It was all hand made parts and mods to make it fit & function. It sure fit and functioned nice though :razz:

I will post pics before dinner time. I have to eat lunch and pick my son up at school then I can get the pics taken and posted. They are DOT certified in case you are wondering.
