Throttlebody/TPS

Post by mac74 » Mon Dec 18, 2006 5:33 am

Hi!

I've started planning my upcoming megasquirt-installation. Since I will need a proper TPS I wonder which one that would be easiest to use?

I think I read somewhere that the complete throttlebody incl. tps from a 12v 164 will fit the GTV6 bolt-on. Is there any point in using a TB from a 164S (QV)? Larger diameter?

mac74 I don't know if you'd had a chance to look through my write-up on my MSII install if not here's a link.

I used a Bosch TPS from a Volvo 850 so that should be convenient for you :lol:
A simple adapter plate made from aluminium was all it took and it works just fine.

Ok, Murray, I will look into your thread. I guess I could find one or another Volvo in the local scrapyards ;)

What I was curious about was if the 164 TB is a bolt-on fit. I can get one for about $50 complete with tps. Then you wouldn't even have to build the adaptor plate for the tps (not that it seems as a big deal). Then again, maybe the throttle linkage needs modification?

Yes, the 164 TB will fit. However the TPS from the ML4.1 systems also use the switch type TPS. You need the potentiometer type. The 164 TB is the same as the 155 and has mounts drilled for both types of TPS. You'll need to buy a new TPS but it will fit the TB.
