Oh that's awesome. So just use the whole inlet manifold aye. Does it fit straight up without any modifications?

You will need the water bypass pipe from an FG as it is mounted closer to the block to give clearance for the manifold. The bolts that hold the manifold are longer than the std ba one's. The manifold does not need to be modified to fit it will just bolt on. you will need to lengthen the wiring that goes to the mass sensor. you will need to use a BA mass sensor. The wiring that goes to the throttle body will need to be Modified as the FG throttle body only has one plug where as the Ba one has two. Not hard to do as all of the Ba wiring is the same colour as the FG wiring. Just join to the write colour. The only problem I had was that it wouldn't idle when it got to running temp but fixed that by drilling a small hole in the butterfly on the throttle body. which is a common fix on a lot of FG's. I was lucky enough to get a manifold from a damaged engine at work.

Holy crap he made 20rwkw with the manifold swap!

I'm doing what Phantom said. Rather than use the BA TB, I'll be using the FG TB. Simply extend and modify the wiring. I've sourced from FTG the entire manifold, tb and the water pipes for $270. Car is being tuned in 3 weeks, so I have a week and a half to get it on, before the dyno day on the 13th. I'll have the 4495's and twin 2.5" exhaust, and hopefully the new manifold.

I'm not expecting any ridiculous numbers, but if it puts out more than 160rwkw un tuned then I'll be cheering. And of course, I'm hoping for 175-180rwkw when tuned. Of course, it might not even make 170 tuned, fingers crossed I guess.
