I know there's some twin throttle body plenums being developed but not sure if they're for sale yet, I will try and find out a bit more when I get home from work

Thanks mate. will look fwd to it :D
Am thinking of actually running 8!!
thought that I might set it up so that it would look & perform like a weber setup. really like the idea of 8 small throttle bodies sitting under a COBRA (427 air cleaner) and the induction noise would be awesome !! 8-)

Yeah the orange GT,it used to come into the dealership i worked at, sounded awsome! very similar to a v8 supercar,the guy that owns that car was known as Big Joe,the car was in a street machine fords magazine a while ago and it nowsw has a twin turbo setup,the 8 throttle body setup was done at autotech bey spiro,very expensive but...Vito.

Yeah, the orange one now has a turbo setup. The black one sounded great. I thought I had a pic of it, but I can't find it (or never had one).

ring spiro at Autotech in sydney, he built the orange GTs setup a few years ago, 02-98971378. It still has the 8 throttle bodies but has a twin turbo lit plumbed in. Checked it out a few weeks ago when they were tuning the EB for me. The black 1 at the nats has a mean setup also, don't know who built it but sounded tuff when I saw it earlier this year. They are a bugger to tune but the power & noise is well worth the effort. I'm running a DC&O setup on my XR8 and I believe they formed the original gear that Spiro used on big joe's car.
