I was taking my engine out to re-gasket it, and due to certain circumstances, I'm forced to use an available Z6 intake manifold and a Y7 throttle body (broke the TPS on the way out). The throttle body and manifold mate perfectly and have the same ID. The A6 gasket even works just fine. But, what's the sensor on the bottom of the throttle body and can I completely remove it or should I just disconnect the plug? Also, I was curious about the fact that the head isn't getting ported for this manifold. This is all getting done in a barn as a last second, gotta get it running to get to work and ZERO dollar project. I have no money whatsoever, but I have everything I need already, so I can't go to the machine shop unfortunately. Anyway, the width of the intake ports on the head is less than that of the manifold, but I believe taller. How many intake turbulence issues is this going to cause? Also, the Z6 manifold is BARE. I have all of the stuff on my stock manifold and a Y7 manifold laying around for parts, I have yet to finish assembly, so I'm not sure about all of the compatibility issues I'm going to run into yet. What items can I pull from other manifolds to add to the Z6? I'm more worried about this running halfway normal than anything... if all that's wrong with the motor is the intake manifold situation, I'll be fine as long as it drives and I can change stuff. ANy issues I may run into or suggestions? It's all staying stock except specifically the manifold, throttle body and fuel rail, so all of the stock wiring, or most at least will be retained, I'm just more worried about idle issues arising, so any advice on this setup?
