    They used to sell those starr manifolds, another mob do them now https://jhp.com.au/shop/performance/...throttle-body/

    but they are 2 grand and its still a banana intake with too long and small runner... If you want to keep it looking stock your options run out real fast.

    LOL yeah, but if the guy is dead set on stock you have to compromise, and put up with less power.

    I went on the trickshift wait list 18months ago with no luck. My theory being a group a rip off looks somewhat stock and flows alot more.

    I gave up waiting and have gone come ttb instead.

    There is a Starr for sale on Facebook, 1K.

    Do a search on here, extrude honing did more than the throttle body from memory.

    I believe it started off with a banana manifold and then had the winder fitted at a later stage. I think he also did something tricky to make it look genuine.
