Found this on the Protege net:

"Ford Explorer 65mm Throttle Body is the way... I got a 95 323 with a 97 1.8 DOHC engine nad I use a Ford TB... It's practicaly a bolt no... Just a little Drill work in the holes and you need to eliminate the TPS & the Idle control valve and make the Idle with Throttle screws. Simple and got a good Punch at high RPM's...

Pd. (Sorry I don't speak/write English very well... )"

Anybody have any info on whether this would be feasible? I would tend to think not, being that the GT is a Mazda and the Ford is, well a Ford, etc etc. But who knows? Something a junkyard runner could find out. Might be worthwhile as oppsed to overboring your own TB.

don't know if that would be feasable or not...my first question is how well does the car do without the tps? I had mine unhooked for awhile when I did my clutch(missed it...lol) and it ran, but it almost always seemed at a high idle....interesting though...I guess just about anything is possible...it may run fine as he also did away with the idle control valve...I wonder how the ECU acts with this

the 97 1.8's are a differnet intake manifold then our 1.8L manifolds. the Vics is in a different postion so that the hole may be bored out easier. with out a TPS your car would not react like it should and would rob you of torque inturn robbing you of HP. also your factory t/b is liek 52mm adn the 1.8L manifold we have is only boreable to 58mm with out punching thru to the vics chambers. jsut a few more facts.
