Hi tamer, BA XR8's have 75mm throttle bodys as standard.
Herrod do have a Helix Spacer for these, members on these forums say they work well...

I have the blue herrods spacer. I think it is a 70mm. How much is the 80mm spacer going for.

Re: 80mm Spacer

Herrod done some testing on air filters about 10 months back and found the BMC is the slightly better perfoming filter in our Boss engines this test was done with a SS CAI...

Re: 80mm Spacer

$1000 For A Ss 80mm T/b Thats Very Expensive For 4.9 Kw Gain On A 290 Motor Thats Like What About $800 Here.
If You Want One I Should Be Able To Get You One For $560aus Plus Postage, Fitting It To The Car Is Easy But Its Swapping Some Of The Parts Over Might Be Best Done By Someone Who Has Some Mechanical Knowledge...
