well im in need of an st205 throttle body and i came across this...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/80mm-Universal-Throttle-Body-CNC-BILLET-1jzgte-H23-S2K-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQfitsZSubmodelQ3a2Q2e5QQhashZite m4aa8ee09beQQitemZ320661752254QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5f TruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

its an 80mm universal throttle body. i know we need the TPS and IAC on our throttle bodys, but i have a tap and die kit to threading some holes wont be a problem :P would it be possible to use a piece like this? has anyone ever done it? also,this ones looks like it has a spot for the TPS as well.

The mounting bolt pattern won't be the same. Hey I should have a 205 throttle body pretty soon here that I can't use, PM me and we can work something out if you are interested.

Sweet, I will definately be keeping in touch:)

I'm not worried about the bolt patterns really, I can always drill new holes in it, as long as the available driling space lines up with the 205 I'M. What I'm more worried about is the compatability with the IAC and the TPS.

yeah i was gunna ask you chris if i should send the tb his way. Eric i have a 205 throtle body laying around but are you sure you wouldn't be better off reusing you 185 top end?

we reason i need a 205 tb is because the longblock i got from marco didnt have it...its a 185 block with the 205 top end. no sense in downgrading just because i dont have a 205 tb :P

But how much are you asking for it? And does it include the tps and iacv?

I'm also really curious to know if those universal throttle bodies are compatible with our IACs and TPS's.

someone on mr2oc wants 150shipped for a 205 valve cover and TB, fair price. i will definately be grabbing the valve cover from him but like i said, if i can get a universal chrome TB off of ebay that can be modded to work with our sensors ill gladly spend the extra 20 bucks or so on it...

keep in mind too that using that TB with that throttle cam will make the car very annoying to drive. small movements in the pedal will now result in very large changes in airflow to the engine.

most larger throttle bodies use progressive linkage to combat this, otherwise the throttle is very jerky.
