I take it that the **3/8npt to -8AN ** for the distribution block is if I am running an -8AN fuel feed correct?

I'm going to be running a -6AN fuel feed from my filter so logic would tell me that I would be running a 3/8npt to -6AN

Correct. I thought you would be running -8an.

This is the correct part number then.

I think the raw silver aluminum version of this 70mm throttle body will be finding its way to my car too

Direct bolt on that accepts all stock sensors. I removed my cruise control, so I don't need the second cable.

scby rex has it and I think he said he had to do some type of modification to make it work.

You have to be careful while porting the manifold because you wont have much material left between the opening and the opening for the iac valve. This all also means you cant use the oem gasket, I used gasket sealer and it works fine.
I think I am going to try this throttle body out since most of the issues are for reversed manifolds and the stock manifold.

After getting back from one week in Barcelona for work, I found a little bit of engine bay accessory bling

It should go well with the Forge reservoir tank that is on the way. It fits right over top of the OEM cap and secures with a set screw. Just like the Project Mu caps I have.

So which one should I go with BLUE or SILVER.... The blue would go with some of the other anodized bits in the engine bay (rails, project mu caps, oil cap) but the silver would stick with the polished theme.

I'm leaning towards silver because I think it will be less of a visual distraction.

is the tb OD bigger? In other words, do you need a bigger coupler and piping to fit over it? Or just the ID is bigger?

I'm not sure, I never thought to ask them about it.... but I am really on the fence if I want to go this route. I measured my Magnus butterfly opening and it is the same as stock. I would have to bore out the Magnus opening to match the 70mm butterfly of the TB. I'm worried about messing up the opening for the IAC valve at the top.

Here were the latest emails from them:
Quote:
Are you upgrading an intake manifold or use the stock intake manifold? Does this going to be on GDA or GDB?

There are some modification required for properly TB operation. TB bolts on to stock bolt pattern on the intake manifold but since the butterfly is bigger than the stock, you will need to bore the inside of the inlet of the stock intake manifold to allow full open. All sensors will fit onto the tb. ( TPS, map) For the throttle body cable, you can use the stock cable.

have a good day and thank you for your interest.

Only blue TB is in stock and ready to ship. However, if you like to get it in silver, please allow 7-14 days to make it.
have a good day.
I also found this one from Godspeed:
http://www.godspeedproject.com/store...oducts_id=1053

You can see from theirs just how thin that section between the butterfly opening and iac is:


I'm thinking I might end up cleaning up the stock TB and paint it Gunmetal to match my Power steering pump and other accessories. I'm going to try and delete the second pulley on the stock TB as well.

A 2.75 coupler will fit over it, thats what Im using. You can see that it streaches the coupler slightly.

Atleast they told you what I told them. They didnt know about their fitment until I told them about it.

I don't see the point going through all this trouble for a few 3-5mm! If you're going to do it then at least get an 80mm TB and run 2.75" or 3" pipe on the cold side.
If you go ahead and do it then i would do the silver.

Since I'm back from good old Spain, I was able to pick up a bunch of new bolts, washers and gaskets from Robbie and started mocking up my new intercooler piping. I wasn't able to finish the passenger side because of that damn ABS unit that will have to be removed before I can finish

I also mocked up where the power steering reservoir, BOV and coolant reservoir go so that I could get a look at how it will all come together. My polished turbo inlet and forge coolant reservoir have finally cleared Canadian customs so they should be here any day now.

And now for the pictures.. Picture the 2.5" pipes all nice and polished

I think I'll likely re-do the part coming from the turbo and heading towards the drivers side with the BOV on it.

I did that section first and then I started working on the passenger side. I'll shape it more like the section that goes over the turbo to make it look more symmetrical.

Gotta love PVC.. I can just cut a few pieces and stick it together like LEGO
