Okay, well Pat is gunna get me a TB...i will get an adapter from someweres..
Yella Terras it is..they come with the push rods so thats a good thing..
105 springs are a must then from the looks of it, retainers and new keepers too ofcourse.
Edit: Are these springs a must have? I have no intentions of a cam for quite a few years, if ever lol
why dont the medium load ones work on a 97?
it just seems the 105s are kinda over kill arent they?
3.4 mps, 3.2 and 3.1 will be orderd

Matt, shave your throttle shaft and polish the inlet of the TB. You'll need to round off a few edges that I can point out for you (I just did this for Pete remotely). Forget the N* TB. You don't have the mods to gain much from it, and it'* not worth the PITA and extra cost at this point.

You and I need to chat on the phone before you port match your LIM. There'* more to do than we did before. This is part of what'* happening to the Zilla this winter.

Follow Boosty'* pics on the M90 porting and polishing. It netted him two tenths on the pulley size right away. I suggested a couple new changes based on the GenV differences, and it seems to have helped him.

I agree on the INTENSE thermostat. It'* a no-brainer.

Okay, the Tstat is factored in
TB...okay..i wont get the N*
Saving a few bucks at this point works for me haha
She still needs tires lol
We will chat forsure before any LIM porting takes place..
the SC stuff is pretty straight forward however.

Maybe do some head work, and convert to 98+? Is that possible?

They decided they did not want to honor their "lifetime" warranty so we moved on to a different vendor.

If you go to higher shift points, they will not.

Stock lifters are good until you start spinning the motor about 6500.
