Never even heard of it to be honest. I don't think there would be any difference or if it'd work at all.

the stock computer probably won't be compatible, then you would need a aftermarket one, then you may as well get a tune without an afm

I've heard of XF throttles but anyone know if there is any advantage. It just seems like a lot of effort for squat..

VL twin turbo. VN5L. old jeep, **** mondeo.
i see where your coming from, if your using a xf throttle body, its easy to get your hands on a bigger diameter air ducting, but a larger AFM is a bit harder to find, look into it mate, and let me know as i'd like to get my hands on a larger one that is compatible.

The 3.0l Nissan Patrol uses the RB30 still and the air intake side might be bigger, you might be able to use one out of a patrol then, look into it mate.

Yeah its carby fed.

I wouldn't worry too much, Unless you could pull it apart and put it in a new piece of pipe. But i dont think it'd make a difference at all. Especially with stock t/b. And stock inlet. And stock engine.

Are there many people who make a plenum that goes forward instead of across? Trying to eliminate some pipeworks...

Theres a few that weld it up and cut into the stock plenum yeah. But if you've got a few dollars laying around its worth getting a new plenum all together.

Theres a few people that have even just put a 180 in there pipe straight from the t/b .. it works but it looks ridiculous
