Yep they do, at wide open throttle. Great if you drive around at 5500rpm all day.

au throttle body is a straight fit on ef , you will need to cut the isc plug and use spade terminals to connect the au one , you will need the air intake from the filter to the throttle body and the pvc breather tube from the au as it goes on the side of the air intake tube not in the throttle body like the ef, it will work fine and you may notice a little better take off .
