Default WTB Individual Throttle body set-up

Anyone here using an ITB System? Angel318ti seems to be using dbilas Dynamics (distributed by BMP here stateside). I really want to know performance differences; throttle response, acceleration, fuel economy, etc. I've tried contacting BMP many times, but everybody seems to busy to respond to a potential buyer. Their set-up seems to be geared for racing anways.
So, if anyone here uses it, I would appreciate some feedback on the system.
Thanks

Check out what the Honda guys are using. I think they borrow the ITBs from a CBR900RR Street Bike.

i'm not aware that angel is actually using an ITB system. i think he just posted a pic to it in his gallery because he was interested in an ITB system. i could be wrong though ... angel?

you can find throttle bodies at BMPdesign.com, but seam is also marketing a ITB system that sounds really promising.

ITB's are great on NA cars to deliver instant throttle response. I believe the increase in horsepower is not that great without further modifications, like cams, software, injectors...
Dbilas offers several performance kits for the TI, at the form of various power stages. A great option the dbilas, at least in the paper, since I never saw a ti running a dbilas kit... Very expensive also...

BMP sells them for $1795 for a complete bolt-on kit, but I think theirs is a racing only kit; I could be mistaken. They get their straight from [I]dbilas[I] dynamic as i have already contacted them about it. However, the set-up that angel has in his gallery seems to be smaller and the picture caption says M40,M43. I'm wondering if that particular set-up is using an M43 intake runner?
I would be curious to know:

Just do a search for it, there are lots of them out there. Try Honda-Tech.com.

Yes, bike ITBs will work on a Ti, but you'd need to do some research to find what kind of flow you need/want and find the right diameter. You should be able to copy a Honda 1.8 L setup. You'll need custom programming ($$$$$$$$).

I'm going to do a search.
Any idea on how much a bike ITB setup for the ti would cost?
Cheaper than the dbilas setup (1500 euros)?

As for software. here in Portugal there is a company wich does custom chips for 500 euros. The chip have very ggod feedback.

http://www.vilauto.com/

They should be able to do a chip for the itb setup, right?

If you call BMP ask for Chris. I've dealt with him alot (since I live in the same town as BMP) he knows his stuff, and he used to own a ti. What more can you ask for.
