i have a 99 au 1 that has all the power but just seems to lack that solid accelleration,and was wondering wether i can upgrade the throttle body and intake,i have the cold air intake setup with air pod,and was thinking au 2 xr6 or even ba xr6 throttle body.

I have a 68mm TB for an AU 1 which you can have for $200 which is what i paid for it a few months back. Never got around to putting it on.. Probably never will. Let me know if ur interested

From the original thread
- a throttle body which has been bored out to 68mm
- a thinned shaft (top half removed)
- 2 new dome head screws to suit the new thickness
- a brand new butterfly with a sharpened leading edge.

Just unbolt yours and get some one to drive you to progress road wreckers at Wacol and they have a heap sitting on their shelf and compare yours to a later one i cant see why it wouldnt work i have a Au one on my EF manifold works good.

Forgot the plug on the Au one is Different but just use the AU one and cut the wires and solder the new ones on to suit the Throttle Body
