I have polished elbows in stock for the guys that want some major bling (OE powdercoat black also available).

This is our dual 72MM Throttle Body and matching high-flow inlet elbow, designed to make big power on the TVS. Same setup used to make 748RWHP on my car.

The D-port shape flows the most amount of air with the least amount of porting.

The big difference between the standard elbow and the big elbow is the floor. The big elbow has the floor lowered to take advantage of the hollow area inside the TVS blower. The big elbow also has a larger opening on the front to accommodate the VMP 72MM Dual Bore TB.

The standard elbow still has the D-port shape but does not have the floor lowered, so it requires less port matching work, it is designed for stock blower and mild TVS applications. The opening on the front of the standard elbow is stock sized and fits the following TB variants: 66MM, 67MM, and monoblade.

Both elbows re-use the large molded OEM O-rings to assure a perfect seal.

ALL elbows are cross compatible and use the same bolt patterns, which allows you to mix and match parts so you do not have to spend the money twice.

For example, if you are going to buy a TVS in the future you can use our big elbow and 72mm TB on the stock blower, it just requires a little more port matching.

If you already have a monoblade TB or 66MM TB you can use our standard elbow, or take advantage of the lowered floor on our Big elbow.

The only requirement, if you want to use the 72MM TB, you have to use the Big elbow as it has the larger opening on the front to accommodate the large dual bores.

To make more power the hole on the blower has to be enlarged, here is a shot of how material needs to be removed for the standard elbow:

Both elbows also have extra material cast in so you can go even farther if you wish. With the D-port design of our elbows, and the revised turn radius, our elbow will flow more than even the best port job on the stock elbow.

Oh yes, that is what I have been waiting for. Any tips on disassembly of the TVS and porting. I would like to do everything myself. Since I am an orthodontist I could bring it to my office and have one of my assistants hold suction for me while I grind on the TVS in one of my chairs. However, I am sure there is a better way. Thanks Justin for all that you have helped me with so far.

Hey Justin, just curious, with all the hype over the last few months on the L&M 66 and how good it is over the monoblade whipple and it's ability to flow huge numbers, why the 72mm now. I am considering the L&M based on the talk off great driveability and throttle response. Is your 66mm not enough for your combo? thanks

Hey Paul,
Diassembling the supercharger is not very difficult just make sure you remove and reinstall the rotors with the front of the case facing up to keep from scaring the rotors and case.

I'm attaching some pictures showing how much material you remove along with how it looked after it was ported.

Very nice!

Would those bolt up nicely to a stock SC and C&L or JLT CAI? Or would that extend the CAIs too far forward?

Oh, and is VMP planning on offereing JLT CAIs any time in the future. Performance wise, as I understand it, the C&L and JLT CAI would have same tune & perform the same. The JLT with the carbon fiber neck and bright red filter available for it just add a bit more "blink", IMHO of course, then the C&L

Hey, I don't know if you remember, but a while back I tested the monoblade and dual 66 on my upper+lower TVS GT500. This was back in the early days of the TVS, and we were not modifying the elbow yet.

There is a clear difference in surface area on the 66 vs the monoblade, as the mono is just like a 66 but with the middle totally opened up.

Both TBs made the exact same power, even though the mono had a lot more surface area for air flow.

This told us the A) the engine did not need more air or B) the restriction lies elsewhere.

With further testing and elbow modifications I found the restriction lie in the factory elbow.

Once I made an elbow that flowed enough air I found the 66mm TB was too small.

Hence the dual 72mm TB was born, it flows a ton of air, has the idle and driveability qualities of a dual bore TB, and still fits on the stock bolt pattern so its compatible with everything. Surface area is nearly as large as a monoblade but with all the benefits of a dual bore design.

Of course, the elbow places the TB in the stock location, so any CAI will work fine.
