Hi, what do I have to do to fit a AU2 XR8 throttle body up to my el v8?
I measured the throttle body, its 65mm on the side closest to the manifold, and the maf side is about 70mm. So i got no idea, im guessing its a 65mm throttle body? Is this what AU2 XR8's had? lol

I believe i have to drill the holes so I can fit up my eseries TPS, is there anything else?
I have read about changing voltages etc somewhere before, but i dont have a clue if i need to do this, or even how to do it.

Anyone able to give a few basic steps to fitting this thing up ?

Thanks guys,
Steve

Yes, it's an AU 65mm t/body. Just use a drill bit to widen the mounting holes as the bigger throttle bodies have a slightly wider mounting. Bolts are a slightly different size also.

You'll need to twist the TPS slightly until voltage is just under 1v. There's not much to it but if you are looking for more detail a search should reap plenty.

with the multimeter chuck the red lead in one of the wires (can't remember which one - it's either the green or brown i think) and earth the black one to the chasis of the car. You have to push the multimeter needle end thing down into the rubber casing of the tps plugs to get a reading from the wire. Loosen one of the screws on the tps and while at idle move it left and right until you get about 0.9 - 0.95 volts.
you have to use the tps off your old throttle body cause au's have single tps and e series have dual, one for ecu and one for trans.
You need to get the voltage for both of them right on and once you've done that then tighten the screws.
the hole will have to be elongated a fair bit, but its only necessary to do one, probably the one closest to the firewall.

haha, brett, learning from the best

what maf did you get? is it for 19 or 24lb injectors?

another 2 weeks and it should be 100%. Got the unichip (thanks again brett) which has to be installed and tuned, chasing up an egr spacer and will cut speed holes in the airbox....apart from that 180rwkw shouldn't be too far away at all.....can't wait. Also got underdrives to go on!!
