Cheers

What v8 are we talking about? I guess a early eb to el v8? If your looking at putting an AU throttle body on, without making other changes, it probably won't get you much if any gain. The standard HO manifold is rather small & restrictive, so is the factory EGR plate & the factory maf.

Does the engine have any other mods like extractors & exhaust or heads (ie gt40p's) ? If not, there won't be any noticeable gain from just changing the throttle body.

Cheers

The car is a au2 xr8. It is only a 200kw so it didnt have a tickford throttle body but ive got one for it.
Im just not sure if the maf has to be changed to match it though?

Without other mods and a ecu reprogram to suit a bigger TB, you probably won't gain much if anything at all.
