Mk2 MX5 on ITB's

Hi
Is anyone running the 1.8 mk1 or 2 MX5 on ITB's? I have an Omex 600 and am looking at ITB's, if so any good?

(I dont want turbo or SC)

There wont be many as NA tuning is such an expensive way to get gains on the mx5 engines. The reason they respond so well to boost is they were basically a motor designed and built for boost that had the turbo removed.

What are you trying to achieve? There are a number of builds on MX5Nutz and Mighty5s to pick through.

The general consensus both sides of the pond is that you would do all the other breathing mods and get to 90-100 bhp/litre ish before the next logical step is switching to ITBs. And you would do it for the throttle response (which is pretty decent on the standard inlet) rather than bhp figures.
