Yes but the TFS is more troublesome than the edelbrock.

is it just as simple as swapping the plenum the other way?

Yes pretty much, but then you will have to modify vacuum lines to fit etc.

well apart from having the edelbrock logo facing the wrong way it sounds like the go then . modify, do you just mean extending to fit?

Not worth the effort just to have it the right way around.. You'll have to move airbox and MAF to other side. New throttle body and cruise control cable? Then for tb, it would be easier to buy one from states to suit that side etc
