If you don't have any luck on here Tom, I sold mine within 5 minutes on bfc for a similar price.

Thanks Tom... I figured I'd try locally first.

What's the difference between an OBD1 and OBD2 throttle body?

it doesn't have a bracket for the ASC throttle body.

i'd like to know what improvement you get buy putting only this. The dinan webstie clain 8hp/12lbs with "Dyno results for the combination of Stage 2 Engine Chip/Fuel Pressure Regulator, High Flow Cold Air Intake, Free Flow Exhaust and Throttle Body."

So, buy installing only the throtle body, you get what ?

As the Dinan website implies, gains will be seen with supporting mods. If you slap this on a stock motor you may see a change in throttle response, but HP & tq gain would be limited.

The throttle body is 2mm bigger then the standard one and improves throttle response as well as top end power/torque.

Like mentioned above, dinan's claim is with supporting modifications and tuned stage 4 software.

Is that the only difference? Will it fit on a ASC-deleted (but still OBD2) S52 ?

the wholes for the manifold are the same, but I'm not sure if it will work with other parts ie TPS, cable linkage for throttle/cruise control, etc...

Perhaps someone can chime in on this.

Basically, this is not the first mod someone would want to do... but if you have a bunch of other mods and need the engine to breath a bit more to maximize performance, this is a good thing to have.
