AU1 TE50 Throttle Body + Other Mods

Hello
Can anyone tell me what throttle body the AU1 TE50 has and also what you would recommend going up to if I was going to change it? Also what other mods should I do to get the car peekin'? I already got exhaust system from difilippo and changed air and oil filter to K&N but want to do more. Can anyone help?
Thanks

Re: AU1 TE50 Throttle Body + Other Mods

The TE50s came with the same TB as the XR8 series 2, 200kw motor - 65mm TB. The series 3 XRs and series 2 TEs came with 70mm TB on the 220kw motor. Replacing the TB alone will not get you any huge gains. the intake to the TB is the least restricitve part of the intake system. Heads would definitely be the place to start. However, if you are going to change it, Mick Webb in melbourne sells (or used to sell) the Tickford 70mm TBs, and a few other sizes as well.
