if somone wants to see pics I can post some in I did this on my car. it is really simple though.

you just flip the 90mm 180 degrees when you intall it so the acuator does not stick out into viw as bad.

Don't hassle the pics, just was curious about any other issues like if some of the vacuum lines and hoses needed to be moved or changed. I installed the Vmax ported 90mm TB the "normal" way, but there were 2 small issues. The T/B is less than 1/8" from the S/C pulley and one of the coolant hoses going to the S/C rubs on the actuator housing of the TB. So rather than fix those issues, I thought I would rotate the T/B 180 degrees. I have not tuned yet(just Roto-fab and 10% pulley). Did you tune?

Thanks

It was basically flip it and bolt it. yeah I tuned it. I don't want to have to run extra octane on a street car.

Car almost has enough power now ha ha.

Thanks, that is what i will do. Looks like we have the same mods, or will after I get the JRE tune. Do you think our injectors have enough left to accommodate long tube headers and high flow cats? That may be my last mod to the motor.

I will report back after I do the datalog and see where I am at. I am not sure. Thats what I want to do as my last mod for a wile as well. just not sure if there is antyhing left.

If not I am just going to try off road mid-pipes instead of longtubes since there only $200. I would like to wake the sound of the car up a bit so longtubes are the best choice IMO but I don't have the $$ right now for the ID850's that everybody likes to run.

Cool. Look forward to your findings. I'd like to go with the headers for the weight savings and sound.

flip it so the actuator is not hanging in front...very simple and the harness reaches with ease. Exactly the same on 2012 and 2013...I have done this swap on both year cars.

I know I am late on this post, but I just purchased a 90mm throttle body and it would be a lot of help if I could see the pics. For some reason, none of the pics are showing up on my laptop or phone. Any help would be appreciated!

It is because the pictures were uploaded to a separate photo site like photobucket and they aren't stored forever. If people would just upload the pictures to Camaro5 them we could see them 2 years later...
