egr spacer with bigger throttle body


hey guys.

I've got a 70mm bbk throttle body i want to install on my 89 gt. it seems as though the EGR spacer is only 60mm or so. should i bore it out? i've got access to a hone that will work. i was also gonna plug up the coolant lines running to the spacer. is this a good idea?

70mm sucks on a stock mustang.. u lose a crap load of low end torque. 65 is tha biggest you want to use. if you have any decent mods ...than thats the way to go.

A bigger throttle body on a stock 5 liter is a waste of money and will do more harm than good. As far as boring the spacer, I'm not sure if you can or not without running into problems. I don't know if all of them are cast the same or if there are changes in the casting to accomadate the bigger bore. If it was me I would buy the correct spacer or eliminator plate instead of trying to rig something up. Do not plug the coolant lines if you are using an EGR plate. The coolant lines are there to cool off the EGR plate, why would you want to remove them?
