When I had my commie, I put a V8 throttle body onto the striaght 6.

Is that possible of the EF striaght 6? how much does it cost?

Supposebly there's little to no power to be gained from playing around with bigger throttle bodies unless your engines got more work. Just what I've read previously on here.

those twin throttle bodies wouldd be good for lpg, as you you know how the air has to flow through the ventui thing and squish through t draw out the lpg, which really cuts down the diameter of the intake piping. with twin throttle bodies you can have to of them so over all you've got twice the room for air to flow. i'm guessing a set of those twin bodies isn't cheap though?

Don't waste time or money on a six cyl falcon by changing the throttle body.

Theres no power to be gained.

isn't that half the reason why the ef xr6 use to beat the xr8 because the throtle body on the 8 was too small?
