Hello All.
At a recent Alfa day at Brooklands I overheard a conversation about using a ferrari 360 throttle body on a Busso V6. Does this mod have any merrit? And if so, how can two almost identical looking throttle bodies be so different? Does the ferrari one react quicker or have a wider apperture to allow for better air flow?
Thanks for any advice...

Maxi is correct with no figures that prove its much better. But never the less i still got one as i got it cheap.

I got a F430 TB and when you tell people this , It makes it faster then having go faster stripes :biglaugh:

Only thing serious i can add is , That if it is to perform better you would need a plenum with a bigger throat if not your dragging air through a bigger hole to just be restricted by a smaller hole.

Edit.. I went and took a photo of the 2 so you can see they are a fair amount bigger..
