70mm throttle body/maf

Did all au xr8's have the explorer manifold???

Would having the explorer manifold mean that you also have the 70mm throttle body? and maf?

The standard AU XR8 setup is explorer manifold, 70mm MAF and 65mm throttle body. Only the 220kW had the 70mm throttle body which will have a dirty big tickford logo cast into it in plain view.

Re: 70mm throttle body/maf

Nah, I put in a few bids, but given I can't put on the manifold atm with insurance, wasn't keen enough to keep bidding . . . altho given the state of my current injectors, maybe I should have

They were offering AU Explorer upper and lower, TB (uncertain which one, would bet on 185kw version), 24lb injectors, fuel rail, ecu (not sure if manual or auto), and few other bits. Don't think there was a maf in there, although there was the intake tubing.
Went for $560, which is very cheap really...
