Well here's the update...

i found a reducer and tried that with the 2 rad hose sizes...



when i test fit it there was some crimping... so i tried this...



and it ended up like this





looks like this will work.. i hope it does lol

and here is the adapter plate i'm working on for the m50 tb swap





i hope to have that made soon along with the pulse intake.

so i'm thinking of some colour themes for my motor..

black valve cover
black intake manifold
black adapter
black tb
black air flow sensor

or

black valve cover
silver intake manifold
silver adapter
silver tb
black air flow sensor

or

blue valve cover
black intake manifold
black adapter
black tb
black air flow sensor

or

open to suggestions

You do know that increasing the distance from the throttle body to the intake manifold will mess with things.

I want to see it though. haha

i think colour wise, go black everything, unless the blue matches your paint then that could work. i plan on painting mine up like in the thread when i have time, maybe throw some yellow into it.

i say all one colour whether it be black or blue, it's so awesome

yeah i think all black will be the way to go... but unlike the picture u'm going to go gloss black.

Sam, after i asked i realized one thing for sure that will create a problem... the vac lines from the valve cover and the one to the ICV should be before the TB not after. the vac line to the FPR should be ok where it is. other than that i cant see what a difference it would make on how far the TB is from the stock position... but once its all done we'll know for sure

You increasing the volume in the intake manifold by quite a bit. Why do you think they make throttle body spacers?
