The series 2 and 3 make the same HP/TQ IIRC. But it is a shame they couldn't do more to make it more powerful.

That frankly doesn't appear to be too hard to adapt to the Series II throttle body, if so.
This has been done a few times on CGP and talked about on here.(possibly done but I don't remember)
You need to drill and tap a few holes in the L26 UIM, and get a L67 Gen V */c adapter to physically make it work.
You will loose your PVC system since it is external on the L26.
And your IAC valve won't work either.
Looking at the exit of the L36 TB and the opening of the L26 UIM, you can see they are far from matching. That odd ball oval to circular transistion will hurt flow. A L67 TB will match up closer but may be too big for a run of the mil L36 not to mention different tuning needed.
