    Will Truck Throttle Body Work? Worth It?

    I've read that the TB's for GM trucks (LS Motors) are 80mm compared to 75mm for F-bodies and will work on them. First, is this a true bolt on swap? Is there a specific year to look for? If I can get a deal on a new throttle body for a 6.0 truck, would it be a good mod? (02 Z28)Thanks

    It's not just a simple matter of bolting on a truck MAF - the SLP 85mm MAF is a truck MAF as far as I know - but with the recalibrated electronics and an adapter connector to go from your wiring harness to the new MAF connector.

    You can buy this from SLP with recalibrated electronics and an adapter to plug it in.In other words the straight up swap won't work-buy the SLP deal to make it work-that was the answer I was looking for before.

    Hey guys,Joe was asking about the 85 mm throttle body/air valve, not the maf.Just to let you guys know slp does not offer throttle bodies-true they do offer maf's and are plug ins and they work.
