VR commodore sedan
Hey all, im in the process of getting some custom headers made up (got a friend that works at performance shop so the fabrication is mates rates :p) i was reading through some old street commodore magazines and found that the V8 throttle body will fit on the buick 6 hence the one in my car, im guessing the v8 throttle body will be off the 304 in the same era. has anyone got some advice whether its actually worth fitting the v8 throttle body on the buick? thanks

its not really worth it, it will only flow more air, and not much hp, but if ucan pick one up for pretty cheap then go ahead, with CAI, extractors, exhaust, bigger leads u may feel a big difference
