Did a little more porting today. I think this is about as far as I'm going to go.

No, it wont. I will need to port match the throttle body, I will get this to be a perfect match. Then I will need to trim the gasket to match. Toddster is going to the salvage yard today, I'm hopping he will find a different TB without the center MAF post. Then use a MAF from a V8. Going to take a little tuning.

It'* actually easy TL.. When I tossed on the Northstar TB and truck MAF, it'* a simple table update, then when you have time...retune the computer.

Dan, why would you keep the stock TB size inlet and go with a bigger maf?
