Sent you a reply. So everyone knows I drilled a 3.0mm hole in the throttle body because it wouldn't Idle when it warmed up and to stop it hunting. I had also used the FG injectors but will be using BA ones when I install the manifold in my BA XR.

Thanks for the reply mate :]

this may sound a little redundant, but i am looking to do this in reverse. the fg intake can only take about 10psi (i should mention that i am looking to turbo my car), so i am looking to put the cast BA/BF intake on my car to take the pressures of forced induction.

by the sound of it, its a straight forward swap... just in reverse to what all you guys want to do?
manifold, wiring, fuel rail, map sensor, ??

why not use the fg turbo manifold?

cause they are reasonably difficult to come accross, and everyone that has one is asking for ridiculous amounts of money... i was just looking into all my options.

In theory it should work, you would also have to get the manifold bolts. Or cut yours down, as they're shorter haha.
Also the coolant line that runs under the manifold. Not sure how it would work in reverse, the FG one may get in the way.
Because the wiring for the mass sensor is longer you may not actually have to do anything with it, just the Throttle body wiring.

Hey sorry to bump an old thread but I've just finished doing this today and on cold startup it idles quite poorly and get no response from the accelerator. I've got fg fuel rail and reg with ba injectors, fg rocker cover, fg coils, fg throttle body (w/3mm hole drilled as phantom has). Ive soldered every join in the loom so figure its not that and initial start up sounds so close to how it used too but once it drops to idle rpm its terrible.Any ideas where I may have gone wrong? Probably up for a tune but figure it's worth a shot.

I would have used the BA/BF throttle body , I did this on my xg barra 182 fg manifold,fg fuel rail but BA injectors and throttle body and it works really well.

Would you happen to have a picture of your setup at all? Need ideas for the adaptor plate. I'm pretty sure it's an air issue causing the idle issues.

Hi mate heres a couple ,you just have to drill 2 holes in the BA trottle body for it to fit and spacers to fit the BA injectors in the FG rail.
