I'm going to be adding a hardened input shaft, good for 1000hp. That should placate it.

Another box came today. I coupler and a MAF adapter. I ordered the 3 to 5 MAF adapter, they sent me the 3 to 5 MAF adapter with IAT. Oh well, same price and should work fine. This should remove the IAT sensor and use the MAF instead.

Now, on to this. A stock L67 throttle body.


Stock inlet. Look at all that restriction.

Now I need to close off the old MAF hole. Once that'* done I will finish polishing the inside, clean up the outside, and put it all back together.

Figured I'd test you.

I know you'd really like the LS1 or N* TB.. Porting an L67 is like putting a small bandaid on a gaping wound. Doesn't quite cover the issue.

I'll get a LS1 or N* later, but this will do. The LS1 MAF is all set to go on, once the throttle body is done, I'll swap it over.

You can find the older N* TB'* for dirt cheap on ebay, it just take a little more work to make them work and they are still 75mm.
