    I still like the 120s my dad used to have. The wagon was my favorite.

    93 mx-3 v6 90 amp with the pulley swapped and about 1/16 of an inch ( I believe) shaved off the spacer to line up with the other pulleys. I also clearanced what I believe was the motor mount engine bracket so I could get the belt over the pulley and adjust tension like a normal person. I still had to use a belt one size up which is half inch longer I think?!?

    Do the the 4 wire TPS mod and RX7 B code and or K code VAF mods provide any benefits to the stock B6 drivetrain/engine system?

    grab a B8 throttlebody & put it onto the B6 intake manifold. you can port match the b6 intake manifold for that or even the BP tb(altho its harder) you can upgrade to the 4wire tps then.

    Thanks for the reply and info, what benefits would the 4 wire TPS provide to the B6?

    ^same as that for a BP. smoother throttle input to the ecu & ~1-2 mpg increase

    Wow, that would be great since I'm always trying to find ways to make it more efficient. Does the B8 or BP throttle body have to be from an Auto or Manual? From what car would I grab the 4 wire TPS? I did some research and noticed the tremendous amount of confusion regarding wiring the 4 wire TPS, what is the current general consensus for properly wiring it.
