Ohh, I wanted to hand you those manuals too. Maybe ask you for a ride for memory sake.
Oh well.

Name me your price for those manuals, I still want em. As well as anything else you have saved from the car (doubtful I know)

I will be going to Nopi in Carlisle in October if you still want that trip down memory lane

Can you send me a PM so we can discuss that lil issue of aurora goodies.

Lucky be the moron (no offense if you know him/her) that bought your Aurora, hell do they even know what they got with it??

hey taylor, im kinda a cheapo that likes to do stuff himself to save money if i can, do you think if i was to buy the rsm tb for 250, i could bore the plate myself? i mean, its just a perfect circle bored out right? i know i couldn't bore a throttle body, but how big is the plate, about 1"? ill bust out the dremel if i can...but ive never seen it, so i dont know if it is possible.

Yes it would be possible to do the plate your self, just use the one you got on the car too. The only thing about the plate is that the hole is kinda set on an angle, so It has to be hand ported, that'* how RSM does it. Dosen't look hard to do at all, just takes time and the right tools which I don't have. A dremel would work for a start, but the rest would be by hand. I'd say go for the home port on the plenum if your up for lots of sanding. and id say it'* a 1.5 in thick or so.

I do have the stock air box and stock cat-back exhuast if anybody wants them. Also have my cardboard templet for my heatshield too somewhere in the garage. Oh and I have the metal pipe from my first intake, won't work with my heatshield design.

Here'* a pic of the bent pipe I have, no connectors or IAT though, it'* the one that is bent more. Not optimal postiting though, that'* why I asked for a new one which RSM sent no charge.



Anybody want it, just pay the shipping

good deal! for 250 its worth a try, 350 is getting kind of steep. i was looking at the caddyinfo stuff, and it does help more on low-mid torque then anything else, thats what i need the most, so i think ill order it, maybe with my next check.

thanks
