where to buy throttle body set for zetec?

hi im looking for the hardware only throttle body set for my zetec engine (locost style chassis) i have messed about with motorbike throttle bodys and as im stuck for spare time im looking for a proper set of throttle bodies with all the bits and bobs that i can pritty much bolt together to go with my megasquirt 2 ecu.
i have some std ford injectors,tps and other odds and ends floating about i could reuse if needed

somthing like jenvey/at power/weber alpha from someone that can offer at a reasonable value idealy in a kit or pack

can anyone point me in the right direction

Both of them are nice if you have the budget. A nice single throttle body on a plenum works well for a lot less cash.

i was looking at webcon/weber alpha atb501 hardware only kit.
www.webcon.co.uk/Downloads/Alpha%20ATB500-1.pdf
at about the same money i woud get pico injectors, tps, sensors, and an airfilter
when you add the extra cost to get the extra bits to get it all sorted it blows both out the water
the only problem is i can only find it listed with burton power at the moment

To what stage have you messed about with the bike stuff? It may turn out to be cheaper/quicker/easier to just get someone to make you a manifold to fit what you already have. The bodies are usually the expensive bits, so it seems daft to swap some you have for another set just for fun.

my wife has just had a little baby so quiet time in the garage is at a premimum now so my ideal solutions have shifted a little

i have some suszuki tb's and a st170 manifold but the ports are not the same size as i was told and i also have some zx636 bodys and a maniflod i had a go at building my self in alloy.

i was just planing on flogging off what i have and getting a bolt up option if i could find a reasonable solution

Keep an eye on the westfield forum, they seem to upgrade a lot...
I got my Jenveys, manifold and injectors from a guy with upgradeitis for £300, so worth looking in.

Cheers
