Hey guys,anyone know if the lower intake manifold is the same from the front wheel drive cars, say like an 86 buick century with a non turbo 3.8? there are alot of similarities but the upper plenum and throttle body definitely look different. also the thermostat housing comes out sideways,but I just need the lower section. I made a hasty bid on ebay item#200830791588 thinking it was the right one and after I won the auction I noticed the small differences in the pictures. I have not received item yet but believe I blew it! If it is wrong does anyone have a good used one they wanna sell?
Glad to have you aboard. Best TR site on the net!
If you are in need of the int. manifold, you can post in the "parts wanted" section, may get a quicker response. MIKE E had one for sale, but I don't know if he sold it or not.
Again Welcome and enjoy.
