I've been searching through the forums and I can't find the answers I'm looking for,


So I've got a manual 5L el fairmont ghia, and I'm getting my hands on an au xr8 throttle body.. How hard are they to install, also will I have to recalibrate my ecu or anything like that??

Cheers

Wiring is pointless, as you need to use the E series tps. You just need to grind out the screwholes so you can get the tps voltages in the proper range.

Did you get the AU egr spacer too, as the e series EGR is smaller than the AU TB.

Easy enough to fit, as mentioned above, just elongate the screw holes in the tps so you can dial it to 0.98v. There's a thread on how to do this with a multimeter and pins.
