    Default fitting a 2.2 throttle body

    can you fit a 2.2 throttle body to a 1.8 as a friend of mine did it on his rover mg but his was a 1.8 to a 2.0l throttle body if so what do you need to do or is it a specialist thing for a mechanic to do

    The 2.4 Tb will not work on the 2.2, I know cos I have one as a paper weight in my cellar. The air flow doesn't match the predicted airflow so the car goes into limp. Courtenay Sport are trying to make a map for it, but I think there having some problems. All you can really do is port and polish the TB, intake manifold and possibly the Head.
