Looking for the following used parts:
- 20V NA cams
- Rear springs to suit Nivomats
- Leak and rust free sunroof
Grey glovebox (or lid)
Better injectors. 350cc at least.
A better straight flange downpipe. 3 inch OBX would be good.
20V NA throttle body.
I have a set of white injectors (375cc) , really good shape $120
and a NA throttle body, (you can easily reuse your turbo manifold with some mods). $30
I can have them delivered to Caboolture for free.
BTW OBX downpipe will not fit straight into a rhd car.... Can be made to fit but requires some mods.
Hey, Rob, I'll grab those parts off you. Were you saying that I should bore my intake manifold out? Thanks for the heads up on the downpipe.
No problems, I will send you a PM...
I have done the TB swap, you can use either manifold. They are identical apart from the bore size. Fitting an NA one is obviously easier but if you don't have one, it is not a massive task to bore the hole out a little larger on your turbo one...
I believe the downpipe fouls on the rear engine mount and/or steering rack mount. the downpipe and the bracket need some trimming/reshaping to fit.
Yeh, the straight flange downpipe hits the steering rack bracket (which serves as some sort of safety barrier), but even with it removed with hit the knuckle above the rack. I have heard that beating the downpipe will help it fit, but it must be very close...
Would modding the pipe restrict flow? Does the angled flange pipe fit?
The angled pipe fits with the bracket gone/cut, but is close. I have run like that for about a year and had no problems though.
But then you need to find an angled outlet, but they shouldnt cost too much. I was in a pinch with my car in pieces so I bought a brand new angled flange for $200 delivered.
Keep in mind that it wont bolt up with your old exhaust, so you will need to cut and weld the old exhaust on, or replace it all the way back.
I think I may have an angled flange housing somewhere. i will get back to you on it.
OK. Cheers guys. Upgrading the downpipe sounds like it might be blowing out to too big of a job for me at the moment.
I used to run a straight flange obx downpipe, i had to basically hit it with a hammer to put about a 2" dent in it to clear, made no notable difference to performance and was fine for a couple of years till I sold it on.
Also for the tb just get a drill and a flap sander attachment to bore it out personally I'd go for the 3" off a 960, doesn't take long to do but do remove it from the car 1st :)
Yeah , even a good coarse file to bore it out ...
960 TBs are a bit rare here but I suppose could be cheap cos no one needs em if you can find one.
Expect a wrecker to think the other way though....$$...
Is the 960 tb bigger? I'm aware of the plate being lipless.
Jackson;39321 wroteIs the 960 tb bigger? I'm aware of the plate being lipless.
Yes it's slightly bigger
960 and 850NA TB are identically sized. 960TB is flat (does not have the plastic thing on the butterfly). The 960 TB has the lever and TPS mounted incorrectly for an 850/X70...
I have 1 of each here.
My wires for the tips fitted a 960 tb without modifications :)
Bump. I'm after a sway bar and some lowering springs. I'm about 1/2 way through a manual swap and having crawled around under my car a bit, I've taken an interest in my suspension now. Would be the best time to put a bigger sway bar in. I would probably have bought a new one from IPD, but with the shipping and the state of the Aussie dollar, it's too expensive.
Bump. I'm planning on cleaning my lifters and replacing valve stem seals soon. I would really like to do the NA cam swap while I'm at it!
Mark or Mark may have a swaybar?
