Default TGV's on N/A - California cars?

News to us. We just had a customer email us a picture. Some sort of TGV or spacer on the 07 Legacy N/A intake manifold. We dont work on n/a really at all in the shop.

Looks just like a spacer for the injector bosses to me. Did you get a pic of the backside? There's clearly no sensor on the front side, but that doesn't rule them out I suppose.

yeah it definitely could be a spacer for the injector but then if it is, why did they need the spacer at all?

Honestly, I don't see the advantage from mass production standpoint.

But, I can clearly see good stuff for us modding types. If those are valve-less TGV spacers that share injector boss sizing with turbo cars, yay easy TGV deletes. And on the other side of the story, yay for super easy turbo manifold change to boost an NA (with whatever you do to the shortblock) with a better mani/IC setup.

Didn't the 07 STI have TGV's that had the motor and sensor integrated on the back side? Is this something similiar but with the back side just closed up?

PZEV motor.

Actually, IIRC, only the legacys/outbacks have that style manifold with the tumble generators.

If you need any more information about it, let me know.
