Is the throttle body itself on the XT Turbo Spyder intake the same as on the non-spyder intakes? I have a chance to get a spyder intake cheap, but it's missing the throttle body itself. What can use on it?

Thanks,
Keith

go look in the junkyards at 80 dodge mpfi and turbo's they use a hooley throttle body
a small adapter plate might be needed

or if you wanted really nifty go look at the ford probe turbo's and mazda turbo's and a few n/a mazda's i think a few otehr cars have ti also
but anyways

those have a cool 2 barrel staged throttle body but it does need a adapter plate to make it work at wide open i think with both plates open its about 1.5 times bigger than the suby throttle body

So does that mean it's not the same as the non-spyder intakes?

Also, isn't there a TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) on the Throttle Body that would have to matched up?

well as long as it matches up electrically your fine you might have to rig up a small "cherry" style switch to act as the idle or wot switch as wella s teh tps wiring

as far as the turbo xt and the n/a xt i have no idead of there is a difrence
sorry i forgot the stock suby's use those mine just usses tps and map sensor.. but its not a suby ecu either so its easier for me to adapt things

How about Turbo XT Spyer vs. Non-Turbo spyder Throttle body? I need to know what throttle body I could bolt right on a go for a start. No messing with wiring or adapter plates.

Just heard back from the place that has the manifold. They have a Throttle body, but it's from an automatic and they said it's different. What could the differences be, and what are the odds I could use it on a car with a 5spd?
