Probably easier just to make one, get some 3mm alloy plate

ditto, just make them. Not worth the time and effort fart assing around with resellers. plus resellers charge too much.

What benefits do u get from doing this?

Some setup's don't use it

What gets used then? confused.gif

some race cars will adjust the idle via the throttle body

they adjust it so its slightly open so air can pass through it to keep it idling

exactly as kemp said. I removed mine as im using a microtech and adjusted idle from the idle screw on the throttle. it cleans up the intake plenum heaps. just made up a plate that covers the hole.

There must be downsides to removing it though?

Ie AC and power steer idle up wont work

 

Cold start wouldn't be as good?

pretty sure its all handled by ecu and in the tune, mines not complete yet perhaps someone with a running car can comment but I think for a weekender/track car its not really going to matter too much with a/c etc..

cant comment on setups with A/C but my 180 with motec ecu starts and idles just fine without it. Cold start is really decent too. Not as perfect as a stock setup but its still good.The p/s idle up is only useful if you're in the habit of turning the wheels when stationary but again I cant comment on that since I don't have p/s either.

I think without idle up by the iacv you would stall so to compensate if u do remove it your idle would need to be set higher.

Now all u guys that dont run iacv got me thinking about pissing mine of as well

I built a quad throttle for my Ve head and I also built a vacuum tank for it

If I Piss the iacv off It would be a lot less work on vacuum lines and shit

Won't nees the vacuum tank just a little vacuum block would do the job

stre8180 main reason im not running it is less hoses and more simple setup with plenum, also im just using a vac block for gauges, ecu etc. oh and no brake booster using dual master pedal box so no vac there either.

yeah the reason i need my vacuum tank is because of my dam brake booster

 

i had to make the vacuum tank big enough so it could supply the brake booster the last thing i need is no brakes when braking
