thats a nice little list you have there. not sure on the first manifold but the cobra will def be a straight swap and you wont need a egr spacer as the cobra has inbuilt egr, few people on here are running the cobra manifold. dont have time to look a the t/bodys, sorry.

A member on here "Muzza" is selling one of those power-plus typhoon manifolds on here in the for sale section, that is the first one on the list.
The next two cobra manifold's are very good, smiliar internally to the explorer just harder to find over here. If your willing to pay for one from the states go ahead, they are a nice manifold, especially that polished one.

The throttle bodies you have put up are all too big. 65mm is what you want. The AU's pre 220 all head 65mm T/B's which can be easily modified to fit e-series. I spend my time searching for one of those if i was you.

there was a dude called pegasusfx that was selling a sweet looking Cobra intake he had imported from the states, IIRC he was asking $550 and in Sydney. It would have the EGR provision you need, and the provision for the ACT in #5 runner....so a bolt on in other words.

About time those manifolds came down in price. I only paid $350 which included $50 freight for the upper/lower/spacer/throttle body and water rail and that was over 18 months ago from a Ford wrecker.

Too true! Especially when you consider a new Cobra intake from the U.S. is about $300.

Which throttle body should I buy, 65 or 70 mm. Also what size MAF should I purchase. Still going to get GTP heads from Yella Terra for $550.00. With the Yella Terra heads does anyone know what extra I need to purchase. I know I have to get rockers but which ones should I buy.
Thanks Steve
