Jenvey Dynamics Ltd., a leading developer and producer of motorsport throttle bodies and induction components for road and motorsport vehicles, has introduced a new range of ‘ultra-lightweight’ throttle body kits.

Its new TBU45 range is an enhanced version of the popular TB45 bodies, and is the first release from the new ‘Ultra-Light’ range, which benefits from a 43% weight reduction compared to the original units.

“The new TBU45s maintain Jenvey Dynamics’ reputation for innovation and demonstrate our commitment to providing customers with continually evolving, market-leading products for road or race use,” says Jenvey Dynamics Ltd. managing director, Mike Jenvey. “TB45s have been enormously successful, but we identified a number of areas where further improvements could be made, the most eye-catching being a 43% weight reduction from the original design without compromising durability or performance. In fiercely competitive race series where every ounce or lb.ft of usable torque is key, the ‘Ultra-Light’ range can provide an invaluable competitive advantage.”

Jenvey’s new TBU45s will be sold alongside the existing TB45 kits, and include a new throttle linkage design, which is lighter, made of less components and easier to assemble. The reduction in the throttle body weight has been achieved through Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and an innovative design that incorporates extra bracing to ensure reduced weight is complemented by extra strength. All Jenvey Dynamics’ throttle bodies are designed, tested and manufactured in-house using modern CAD and manufacturing processes, and are available in the company’s trademark Crackle Black finish.
