throttle cable bracket problem

I have just upgraded from my standard ED V8 manifold to a cobra manifold, which does not use the EGR spacer. The problem is that the throttle cable bracket attaches to that spacer, and there is no place on the new manifold to fit the bracket.

Does anyone know if there is an adaptor or another bracket that will fit.

Thanks

Why not just change the studs with the original longer ones & still use the EGR spacer, Im sure it wont harm your performance, even blank off the coolant lines ..

The EGR is actually built into the cobra intake, so if I used the spacer, I would have to block off the coolant lines and EGR holes in the spacer which will look like crap. Also, the spacer is just over an inch thick, which in theory will move the power range down about 300rpm which is too much for my setup.

Looks like you have 2 choices, drill & tap a set of studs directly into the current ERG spacer & use loctite 262 to seal & lock the studs... OR Make a totally new bracket & utilise the rocker cover bolts to anchor it ..
Good luck mate

The Cobra manifold was used in america, so there is a bracket attachment point, but it is on the wrong side of the manifold. The ED Sprints were the only Australian cars to run this manifold, but their bracket is no longer available through Ford.
