BDL Industries is no newcomer to the sport compact market, having been around in some form or another for quite some time. You may even have some of their parts without even knowing it.

BDL started as Belt Drives Ltd. and used to produce parts for aftermarket operation STR, but eventually parted ways. Following that chapter, BDL came up with its own line of products and now has the facilities to manufacture and ship them. Located in Orange, Calif., BDL Industries consists of an aluminum foundry and other buildings that house over 50 CNC and lathe machines. With these tools, BDL is able to design, manufacture and test their line of products in order to ensure that the utmost quality and care is being put into each product that is made.

Although BDL makes products as diverse as cam gears, fuel rails, fuel pressure regulators, and oil caps, we asked them for a tour to show us how they make their throttle bodies. Nick Winters, general manager at BDL Industries, gladly did the backwards walk-n-talk, illustrating how one of their throttle bodies goes from concept to reality.
