On Mikes I left the original mounting holes along with the new ones but after the modifications the new hole is actually larger than the original Carrera TB. I then weld the linkage pin to the new TB so the factory linkage connects to the new TB. You may need to add length to the stock linkage from the bellcrank to the TB.
Definitely Gnarly looking stuff!! There is no downside to a 75mm throat over my 64mm I have now?? No driveability issues??
