Hi all,

i just picked up a 65mm throttle body for my EB V8 with the spacer they come with.

whats involved in converting it onto my EB HO manifold and ditching the HO TB and EGR?

cheers

Also guys i have put an AU maf in the car with the e series loom. i have been told that i am likely tro get leaning issues abouve 3000rpm at WOT. is this true and am i likely to cause damage?

with a 65mm TB / AU maf and full exhaust is it worth getting a tune? if so what sort of cash would i be looking at for it?

cheers all

As far as whether it'll lean out or not, your best bet would be to throw it on a dyno and check your afrs. For less than $100 it's good insurance and if you're umming and ahhing about whether or not to get a tune, this would help with your decision. Some people have found that using the AU maf with stock electrics bring the afrs to around where they should be as the stock tune runs a bit rich to be safe.
