52MM TB install Question
I recently got my hands on a 52 MM throttle body out of a 98 Plymouth Voyager 3.3 Liter. Its going on an '89 Daytona Shelby 2.2.
My stock TB has 2 VAC ports but this 52mm has 1 port. How do still utilize this TB when it only has 1 VAC port.
When mounting the 52 mm to the stock manifold, obviously the intake opening in the manifold is stock and only flows so much air, no matter what TB you have on there. I want to port the opening of the manifold to allow more flow through the 52mm and in the manifold. Is that even necessary to do or will the 52mm flow enough air that its not necessary to port the manifold ?
For those that did this swap, Did anyone have any issues with their stock sensors swapped over to the 52 mm TB? Did it affect engine performance.?
