    The blower setup in the ad has no throttle bodies on the front of it..

    I put the ad under my spare electron scanning microscope, and it sure looks like a couple of TBs turned 90deg on the back of the blower...

    On the left (pass side) it looks like TB's throttle position sensor connector is visible. On the right (driver's side), it looks like the OEM shaft mounted bell crank is visible.

    I wrote them and asked, but no reply :(

    Might be just a mock up picture if they didn't have any available at the time of add deadline.. ?

    Nope, that's how it's set up. I don't know if they are actually selling those, but I saw it on what I guess was their shop car last year.

    Didn't answer, my oh my, they never have.
    As I understand TNT is not the company that it use to be, good or BAD. Nick the driver, turner has left, Joe the brother and the one that everyone claimed did 90% of the work has left for something else that he could find to do. The only one still in the garage is Roy, the self proclaimed mad one. I guess it might be called "T" now that Nick and Joe have pulled out.
    When they were still working together they had the blower on Roys car but It never really ran or at least never ran through a testing period.

    Just curious about the TNT setup.

    I'd long wondered whether eliminating those long inlet tubes on the Roe system and moving the TBs to the rear would be of benefit..

    Might be too close to the rotors..
