They're reasonably cheap on Yahoo without the throttle bodies, that's why I asked. I've seen people fit them to VQs but they're more closely related.

Do you recon there would be much involved in machining an adapter for a vg

Hmm well I don't have the measurements of anything to double check but they look reasonably close.

we stripped out the rest pf the car ready for the roll cage. iv decided to delete abs because it would mean one less thing to wire up (wiring definitely isnt my stron point) .i am going to make a lexan rear window because we removed the gas struts and the rear hatch must weigh 40kg it was insane

My thoughts are always use a dust mask if the item you're cutting, disturbing, removing creates dust. It may not be listed hazardous now but may be blamed in the future. As a builder you would know of the hazards of rimu, tanalised timber, mdf, cement, fibreglass, et al dust. The lungs are designed for air, they only issue two per person so treat them well.
