SHE IS POSSIBLE! I just need to run to the yard and grab that intake. It's on a Magnum, it got junked for a bad motor. Not sure if it spun a bearing, or if the timing belt bit them.
Currently I only am running a normal 3.5 PCM, so the SRV/MTV shouldn't be an issue. I've been fighting with myself, I want a special PCM, but if I do that, it's wasted time/money if I do go single or compound turbo, as I'll setup a AEM piggyback system. If I just stroker build it, a special PCM is a definite must. If I just rebuild a balanced, ported 3.5 with 4L head gaskets and cams, well a special PCM is still a definite must. As you can tell, I am still chewing on what route to go... LOL
Back to the project at hand...
I'll assume the TPS/IAT/IAC will work fine, given it's been done on a 2.7, either sensors must share the same connection or they must transfer over. A quick look at the intake should tell a lot once I get to the yard to check it out.
Curious on the clearance, as I know the 3.5 is a larger engine, but should play out the same, just cutting out the inner shell of the hood.
I don't follow the LX's as closely as I should, but I believe they have a special contraption on the intake for throttle control i'll need to delete, or modify?!
Anyone also confirm this - I recall the LX engine being tuned with less HP, not a lot, just a little, but obviously outputting a bit more torque, the goal was a more desirable torque curve through-out the band so the car had that same 4.0 peppy-ness around town and city driving. If true, I'd be curious to see with our engine tune and the different intake design the results. Should gain a nice extra ten pounds of torque across the band?
