It will physically bolt right onto your intake manifold... No one really knows if the wiring is compatible or what it's going to do (even if you put the right plug on the harness), but you don't know if you don't try. The LLT tb is superior to the LFX tb, so it would be worth trying.

The attached LFX connector view and pin out may help you if you try to do this. This is for a 13 Camaro, possibly that same as your AUS car? Unfortunately I do not have the LLT pin out.

what is the big difference between them that makes the LLT one so much better?

The LLT tb has a bigger opening, and better inner contour to it... However, since the LFX and LLT have different electrical connectors so I'm pretty sure no one has really had both in their hands to compare, and I doubt most people want to cut wires just to put a different TB on their car.

Sounds like it's just be easier to port the existing lfx tb
