ls1 throttle body relocation
« on: December 05, 2018, 10:24:24 AM »
Does anyone know of any aftermarket TB mounting plates to use to relocate the throttle body?

i've seen this hackass job on google images


and was hoping someone offered some simple plates so i can make my own with some simple aluminum bends.

Anyone seen anything like this before or will i need to make my own?

this is going in a truck so im not too worried about increasing the plenum volume at all

Not sure but keep in mind reversing the intake manifold could also be a partial solution :)

good call on the TB spacer path.
that sent me down to 4 bolt to 3 bolt adapters and vice versa.

along with maybe a pair of these

I really wanted to originally flip the manifold but that requires blowing a giant hole in the firewall and HVAC components on the inside so i gave up on that idea

I saw those adapters too, but wasn't sure if you were gonna go bigger throttle or not.  Good luck!
