Hey,

I just bought a 70mm holley throttle body for my ed xr8, just to see what the difference over a 65 was(if any) but i don't want to use a egr spacer which is all i can seem to find...

The current throttle body i have is an AU2 65mm job with a spacer off an au2 as well, which has the egr hole blocked up.

My question is does anyone know where i can find a non egr spacer? because i don't want to machine my 65mm one in case i need to go back smaller later on...

Cheers
Simon

i have been looking at the egr plates that are available and i can't work out how the accelerator bracket mounts to it, it looks like a different mounting.....

The aftermarket ones dont work to mount the accel and cruise bracket - as they are designed for US cars (ie - the wrong way around)

I got my stock one machined out. Cost about $50.

What manifold have you got??

When you say the stock one machined out was that the ed one? I still have mine too, might look into getting it done
