Just fitted a 52mm TB to my mk3 214 1.4 103ps and WOAH!
I *CAN* definately notice the difference.
Much better throttle response, better acceleration.. and best of all.. no sticking!

I know theres debate about the effectivness of these TB's on the 103ps 1.3 but I can definately notice the diff :dddc:

dunno my mate had one on his escort, ( a larger one I mean ) & his felt pretty dam firm on the acceleration front compared to what it was , altho he paid for it in the MPG , (His is a 1.6si )

The bigger throttle body gives better response but wont actually give you any measurable power difference as has been shown in the past.
Well I can definately notice a difference in acceleration

The car isn't actually any quicker nor does it accelerate any faster. It's simply down to the fact that a wider aperture allows more air in for less push on the pedal. The exact same thing can be acheived with a 48mm throttle body by simply pushing the pedal down a little further to open the aperture a bit more.

It just seems quicker cuz you aren't pushing down as much on the pedal.
