I'm curious to see how bad the fuel trims would be.
Are you going to get the FWD LIM/UIM?
There'* lots of question marks to figure out. Yes, If I did this I would use the FWD manifolds and TB. There'* nothing to gain by using the RWD manifold and it introduces too many problems. FWD manifolds are easy to come by (local price is $60 with injectors, rail, TB, etc)
This is sortta the backup plan should the LN3 die a quick death with a M62 tacked on top. That project is really gaining steam as more of the "must do" checklist is completed. Only thing left is trying out the double-row balancer, getting a chip burned, locating a few hoses for the power steering, and doing the actual swap. Wife is being pretty cool about this as the assemblies are being staged in the living room. The entire manifold/blower/TB/air cleaner assembly is sitting on the fireplace (at least it is clean
Course, if the LN3 doesn't puke it'* guts out the bottom end, then the whole topic becomes a moot point (at which point I'd say "Anybody wanna buy an L36?"
