Top half yeah, bottom half I don't believe so due to the different heads. However, the BBM is better for NA vehicles. And unless your running an aftermarket ECU your timing and what not is going to be upset by loosing the BBM butterflies change over.

The picture only shows the bottom half with work doen to it.

i thought they were in the bottom, but now that i think about it im not entirely sure, its been a while since ive looked inside one!


Been a while too. I just went and had a look at the car, and I'm fairly sure your right and that they're in the bottom half. So that means using this ported unit would equire an aftermarket ECU to adjust the timing.

I know porting is great but after a few hundred hours of research I dont believe there is a big benefit in porting the bbm. The reason why I believe this is that when the runners switch to short butterflies that both long and short paths are both open at the same time.Therefore more then enough air is going down there.
