    Hey fellas. As some of you know, I'm building a NA Z6. If you want specs, it's on pg. 4 of my engine swap thread(in sig).

    I'm pretty much set on the S2 manifold, but it doesnt come with a throttle body.
    What would be the best throttle body for me to use?

    I can get an LS throttle body pretty cheap, but 1. didn't know it would bolt up alright, 2. If the Map sensor is on the top of the throttle body(in other words will anything change compared to my z6?), and 3. if the throttle cable would connect alright.

    Is there a stock throttle body that would work best for my setup? GSR maybe?

    Thanks.
    -Andrew

    you can always port the IM plenum to run a bigger throttlebody.

    the mirage 1.5 guys run the 1.8 TB, ported from 48 to 52mm. some run the 55mm tb off the 2g dsm.

    the 1.8 guys run the 55mm 2g dsm TB. some, get the bigger 60mm from RPW :)
