T/C intakes are they interchangeable?
« on: January 18, 2012, 10:05:42 PM »
85-86 Tbird turbo intakes are non intercooled,  87-88 are intercooled,  my question is being that the 87/88 upper intake looks like it is lower and closer to the valve cover,  this being the case I was thinking of using an 87/88 upper intake and mate it with an 85/86 lower .  Will they bolt up , for better hood clearance, the reason I'm asking is  because I have an 87/88  upper intake and throttle body located , but have to buy it first before I could actually see if is do able.  Yea for Ebay

Should bolt up, you'll need the 87/88 valve cover as it has a step down for the lower intake.
