I picked up an Auto trans G60 TB to use on my setup w/ TPS.
Asking the Q's cause I have a couple options but unsure what to use.
Here is the package I bought & what I have to work with.
ok, just took a better look @ those pics...
you have MULTIPLE setups going on there.
the pipes that are bolted on right now... are setup to run with your "stock" G60 TB. the "y-pipe" is intended to have one pipe going up over the charger, and to your airbox.. with the other pipe connecting to the boost-return valve on your TB. The outlet pipe.. looks like it will head off towards your pass side headlight/charcoal cannister.
where'd you buy that setup from?
as for how to couple it up... you don't need a G60 TB for the pre-charger-throttle setup... you could very easily make due with say a ford 5.0 TB (which may be what that plate is for.. i dunno, havne't looked @ one in a while)...
Magnuson wouldn't have a clue as to what TB would fit your application, as that setup is def not a magnuson design.. it's an aftermarket build by someone w/out full fab equipment.
To use the internal (or external for that matter) bypass valves, you will need a pipe connected directly from outlet of the charger, to the inlet (post-TB)... there will be a vacuum actuated .. well. actuator there, attached to a butterfly valve. positioning of butterfly should be open @ vacuum, closed @ positive pressure (boost).
the magnuson website i *think* has a pretty good schematic of how their bypass systems work.
I'm sure some of us in here can help you out as well. perhaps some close-up pictures of those components.
