st205 WTA in st165

Postby IStalkgt4s » Sun Jan 03, 2010 9:02 am

i have a st205 WTA with the piping and heat exchanger, and i am looking to put it into my 88 165.the engines been swapped with a jdm 185. my question is, can i throw the intake manifold and TB from a 205 on my block instead of fabing a plate and using a autozone coupling? cause i would like to have it free flow and not get restricted by the smaller TB. Also, how to i set up the temp sensor on the WTA unit, and the hood should have enough clearance right? I am pretty sure i can get it on no prob, but id rather do it right then jimmy rig it.and if anyone has the intake manifold and TB from a 205 they are trying to sell, let me know. any input is appreciated... thanks

-gen3 intake manifold won't fit gen2 head, I don't know about the TB.
-that is a water level sensor, not water temp
-hood clearance is tight but it should fit, you might have a little rubbing in a couple areas
-you will have to modify the intercooler inlet, the inlet/outlet are spaced differently than 165/185
