Mind making extra adapters? I will be very instered doing business with you sir
Why didn't you just go with a CS throttle body? it's a 72mm PnP. I think the most you would have to di is possible make an adapter plate for it depending on your bolt pattern.
I'd have to make an adapter plate anyways. I'm not spending 350$ on a TB. This TB was 60$ on rockauto and is 70mm.
PnP doesnt really bother me either as I'll make everything PnP myself.
That is a great reason. Carry on.
I paid 20$ shipped for mine and it came with the harness so......... I will let you know if I get an adapter fabbed that works well. @Maisonvi would be doing the hard work for me.
I may be looking into just grabbing this TB myself as it matches the inlet size of the IM.
A bit of update
- ITFP pulled. (Btw an old bad PRV makes a perfect plug for that feed line lol)
Installed the AEM 340 pump. fit perfect as I thought it would. Want to utilize the retention cap so will be ordering a OEM filter assembly. The old filter was BLACK!
-Turbo yanked to send out for a refresh.
- started to mock up fuel lines to run. Didnt have my AN wrench (at work) so haven't starting assembling anything yet. Shouldn't take but an hour to even get the fuel lines mocked up, made and ran to where they need to be.
Also to add to the list, I want to clean up the custom coolant feed and return for the choo choo.
AEM 50-1215 E85-Compatible High Flow In-Tank Fuel Pump (320lph), that's a direct drop in?
The assembled photo with the whole pump laying on its side is with the AEM pump installed into it.
Great to know as it is a decent amount cheaper than the drop in aeromotive and is a trustworthy brand.
It's also a 340lph pump. Not 320
For the Chrysler tb, once you make the adapter for the plug, I believe all you need to do is swap the middle two wires on the harness. @CMajor should be able to tell ya for sure. He has it on his car.
Also, Heads up, you'll want to switch to VT from Cobb if you don't want the ridiculous on/off throttle jerking from fuel cutting well before the throttle plate closing on decel.
Unless Cobb has released these tables. (roads like tail of the Dragon would be horrendous with the Cobb tables)
And here's the adapter we used for jmf and 16w fab Manis that both had 75mm tb intlets for the TB

You also have to make the bolt holes on the TB a bit oblong for every thing to lime up. Unless kmac made the flange specific for this TB (he may have?)

@Sho interesting. Thanks for the info.
I'm assuming it's the increase In air volume that requires you to have those tables to be adjusted?
I'm going to look into the cx9 TB kmac was using at one point as well.
Can attest to this jerking motion even with CS TB
^ yep my cs tb does it as well, just not as pronounced as the Chrysler TB, but still annoying. I've emailed Cobb about it, and this was their response lol
Yea, this IM venture is turning out to be more than I wanted it to be. Not even the Chrysler TB matches this IM.
I'll probably just send it on the OE ported IM and see where that leaves me at this point.
I could chop the flange off and weld a new TB flange onto it. But then in already in further than I want to be on principle lol
Sad to see you giving up on that intake mani. What was the mani originally flanged for?
I have no clue at this point. I've seen GM/Buick, CX 9. At one point I was told a mustang GT. No clue.
@Sho this looks oddly familiar. lol
Lol, I saw that a few weeks ago. It has been pre-modified but they are trying to sell it as new. I wonder if the TB cable has also been pinned. With that spacer @Sho showed before you could bolt it right but to stock flange.
I think the community has been asking Cobb for those throttle tables since 2013 when Pablo and Skater-boy tried that Chrysler throttle body. Dont hold your breath on them ever doing anything about it.
@KingScumbag what oil drain did you make for the BNR? I'm finishing up my S4 install and not loving how the OEM drain had to fit, might have to explore other options later.
I have a -10 male adapter at the engine block and a -10an male adapter flange at the turbo. 45 slip female fitting on both ends with 5/8 heater hose slipped on between them.
