So does anyone know what the standard size throtle body for a auxr8 is and is it anywhere near going to fit a i6?

Shame plenty of ppl think this... Coz it's completely false.

Get the "70mm" (actually 68-69) off ebay or the on here that sells them. But unless you have extractors and exhaust prolly not worth doing it yet coz these will be your biggest restriction.

If you let more air in, you gotta be able to get the air out (exhaust). So a bigger TB would only be better if the exhaust was also changed to suit

Exactly right.
If this was such a great power mod, why havent people been doing it for years?
Just a waste of time.

I am only doing trying to find out the differance between the two. I can get a throttle body off a au1xr8 as it has been replaced by a inlaw. I know that you need to up grade most other things intake, exhaust and cam. I have read the thread about the dored out throttle body and he got a 11kw gain with the mods he had with only this change.
