I would say it would.. Its almost the same as one we made for an AU in E.D. The front of plenum has to face down along with throttle body which yours is... We had to change ours alittle to clear inner guard suspension area.. No big deal..

That looks great! do the outer bolts on the plenum need to be screwed in from underneath?

We drill out holes in lower and tapped thread in upper and used allen head bolts from underneath...

to prevent any permanent changes to the original lower BBM i did not want to drill out the threads in that section, so we use 6mm bolts through the 8mm threads that are in the lower half, and they screw into stainless helicoiled threads in the bottom of the plenum, we have pads welded inside the plenum to increase thread length..

the reason for no permanent changes is so if you ever need to refit original item there is no hassles

I second that. It's going to look really nice under the bonnet. 8-)

How much do you expect to sell them for?

Ours is for an AU inlet and to me they look the same ???from this flange, So I assume it woul fit on EF up??? ...
In our case there are heaps of A.U inlets so drilling it wasn't an issue...
Good neat work... My comments are NOT ment to detract from your {EBS-4L] good work... Graeme...

cheers

sorry guys, since taking up the job at supaloc racing, and moving to adelaide, there really isnt any way for me to make these anymore... and i never got around to making one for anything other than the ba, to fit an ef etc looked like too much work, i never got hold of a donor vehicle...

i havent really come across any others except maybe the jd custom one that dansedgli bought
