I bought mine from BPT motorsport. BBK 75mm throttle body and egr spacer, They have a 70mm and 65mm too.

I also bought my 80mm maf there, i think it cost me 700ish all up for the MAF and TB.

With the MAF housing, if your going to be going with a custom tune, you'd be better off just getting a unit from an AU. Wether it be 70 or 75mm, they should be readily available still from site sponsor FTG, if not your local wrecker may have one or they occasionally pop up on e-bay.

I have a 65mm T/B and matching "blank type" EGR spacer here off an AU XR8 that im willing to unload if your keen. Obviously would hve to get them polished though.

:oops: didnt even think of b.p.t, thanks schnoods

i thaught about using a au housing and my sensor but im 400km away from a dyno and im not going to the city any time soon so i wouldnt be able to get it tuned. im prety sure c&l do replacement ones that are calibraited for the 19lb injectors and come in chrome finish for around $400 but i thaught id see what others are using first. thanks for the offer xh5lwepn but ill give it a miss, just easier for me to buy a new one already chrome as i wont have any time to myself over the next few weeks to organise getting it polished or even getting it from you but thanks anyway mate.

well it looks like my money is of to the states again. $160us for a 73mm c&l maf and $260us for a 65mm polished ford racing t/body and egr spacer plus freight. now the only problem ive got is i thaught i read somwhere that if using a t/body from the states i would need to mod the part where the throttle cable links to t/body, can anyone please explain this to me so i can get a bit of an idea. thanks

Just buy a holley ball link, and drill it onto the other end of the throttle linkage, its pretty evident when looking at the two.
Also, spin the PCV line 180, just hang a ring spanner over it, they are just an interference fit
