Which throttle body?  People here and on the 200q20v list have said that the RS2
throttle body is the same part number and unit as the 3B one?  Are you referring to
that one?

If I go full the custom, weld-it-up route, then I will probably pick some completely
different throttle body, like from a Drof 4.9 liter (5.0).  That's just a shot in the dark, it
depends on what makes sense and is available, but it illustrates my thought process.
