My setup is going to be ffi 550's npr intercooler gt37 turbo 3in exaust greddy emanage and a maft. Do I have enough mods and power to warrent this tb? Any help would be great thanks.

q54 for that little a turbo? If going with FFi. Go with a stang 5.0 87-93 tb. Available from 65mm all the way to a massive 105mm. Only issue with the q45 tb is it comes in ONE size and that is it. Once you go that way. You would need to cut the tb plate off and put ANOTHER ONE in if you want to upgrade or DOWNGRADE ;) Also keep in mind the modding of the Throttle position sensor regardless of TB if it is not OEM TB... :)

with that stang TB. All you need is one plate and you get lots of different sizes :)

I'm going to use the 1uz tb on mine, the tps is the same as ours, and it's not as big as the q45.

damn and i was going to use the q45 on my FFI... lol Time to start shopping, I've never heard of it being to big though? Isn't one of the points in using a FFI to get more air moving?

I think it also came in some of the LS models, not sure of years. Any 1uz tb should be the same, but check on Lextreme.com, you should be able to find out more info.

BTW, the 1uz tb is 70mm, iirc
