I need to know where to buy the best 97 1.8t throttle body and test pipe. My TB is broken and cat has pieces that broke off so I need new ones. Thanks.

Theres no best per-say.

Bosch TB, ecode TP, jeffpipe(teampsi), atps can rattle...

Do you want a cat or a true TP? big difference

If funds are an issue I would just check the classifieds for the throttle body.

I know its not needed for a k04 but I need a new cat and I rather just buy a TP. Funds are not a issue for the throttle body.

Just FYI, i have the oldschool TT 100cell race cat, and I pass PA inspection just fine for 4 years now, and the converter part itself is basically a testpipe with a cat the size of your fist
Its a bitch to swap out, and you have to do it a week ahead to reset the readiness codes... Just a thought... but it was 450$

The HFC from tantrumwerks has been great for me for a few years now. Cost was 260 and installation was easier than a test pipe. No CEL or other test pipe issues either. I have a K04 and replaced a test pipe with the HFC and didn't notice any drop in performance.
