hi all, just doing a few small mods to my XR8, i bought a Professional Products 75mm throttle body for a 93 mustang, i was told it would bolt straight on with no probs, the problem i have come across so far is the EGR is just the factory one so i looked into the Professional Products EGR but there are no bolts on it to mount the bracket for the accelerator cable.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I'm pretty sure with any throttle bodies designed for Mustangs, you need to modify the EGR to accept our TB bracket, as their TB is on the other side of the engine.

Scaffy is right. You will need to modify the Mustang EGR spacer. There are no off-the-shelf options as far as I know

i got both the EGR and the T/B taken to BPT where they got it modified to suit, quite cheap too.
while i was there i got a 90mm intake pipe (without the dog turd) a 90mm MAF, an airbox from a BA and the underdrives
