I was going to polish up my standard throttle body however they are ugly, hard to polish into all the little corners and the traction control has to go! Im trying to find a throttle body that i can use with a stock intake.



I dont need an aftermarket intake for the power im chasing plus I already have a spare intake thats been polished :) im trying to find out what throttle bodys are out there that will bolt up to the standard intake or where to get them and if anyone else is using a setup like this. I would prefer something that either bolts straight up or uses an adapator plate rather than having to weld the throttle body on.

The TPS is also another consideration. is it possible to get a TB that has a provision for the standard TPS or do I need to wire in a new TPS.

cheers

Think the 1JZ throttle body should bolt up and doesn't have the t/c mess on it. Anything else I can think of is going to be a weld on a flange affair....

I'll keep that in mind as a last resort. was hoping to find an aftermarket item for a bit of bling factor aswell as the simplicity. I could settle for welding on an adaptor plate, I just want to avoid welding the throttle body straight on. I just need to find an aftermarket TB thats fairly close in size to the stock intake. I only need it to suit a 3" pipe from the intercooler.

Australia?

Look into Holden cars. You should have throttle body adapters for those cars as they are abundant in your side of the world. Might look into Ford also.

I sure hope you don't weld the throttle body straight on the intake, lol. The throttle body from the Infiniti Q45 is a popular upgrade over here if you don't mind welding on a new flange. Not sure if there is an equivelant in your neck of the woods. OEM throttle bodies are much better quality than any of the aftermarket ones I have seen.

i wouldnt do that since the 1jz TB is smaller than the 2jz.

i would just stick with the stock one, its far better than any aftermarket ones.

Holden Commodore SS or SS V. Both have the 6.0 L V8 and as such have a pretty significant sized TB.

what size is the inlet on the Q45 throttle body? does the standard 2J TPS connect up to it? appart from welding on a new flange is there any other modifications that need to be made ie shorter/longer throttle cable?

cheers

The Q45 TB is 90mm. The standard 2JZ TPS doesnt connect directly up to it, you need an adapter, or its pretty simple to fab one up. Yeah, need to modify the cable as well. Nothing too difficult. Look up Q45, a guy did a write up, from what I remember.

Most of the GM stuff is DBW.

Adapting a Q45 TB is pretty easy. A TPS adapter, an extension to or longer throttle cable and a place to mount said cable.
