Default Process of flipping throttle body...

Whats needed to reverse the throttle body/intake manifold? I'm aware of the benefits, but was wondering of the process, so I can estimate labor costs. Any comments would help.

FYI, you don't need to cut the hood and all that on a GDA, you can just flip it around and be done with it. All you need to do is move the alternator to where the AC compressor used to exist. You'll need some kind of custom fabbed bracket for this. And of course the FMIC piping needs to be rerouted. IMHO, it's probably not worth the effort unless you are getting something custom setup where the fmic piping comes out the top of the fmic ala WRC car. It works so well on there since the FMIC is where the radiator is on our car.

After installing an APS FMIC and noticing almost no lag difference from my old TMIC, I can't think that it'd help all that much...
