hay, i figured you'd be to guys to ask on this one, is the 40mm tricker TB a straight swap onto the 999 block? i belive the 999 and 1108 blocks are the same so i assumed it would fit but thought i would check first.

Cheers,
Ryan Edge

Its a FIRE block alright, but its the inlet manifold that matters...

Given they use the same TB on the 899cc Cinq, I would be VERY surprised if they altered the design for the Uno...I'll ePER it and report back!

UPDATE - 'fraid ePER isnt obvious enough and no part numbers are used on both the Cinq/Sei and Uno....only thing I could suggest is could you get a picture? as that may give more info...

The 999 head and the 1108 head are pretty much the same. The differences or not affecting airflow. But you might find that the 40mm could rob you of some torque in the 999 engine. Ultimately you will get more power with it, buch higher up the rev range, which could be in excess of 6000rpm.

well why not go for a 1242 engine and the 40mm tb and the £40 chip for that engine- wont cost much and your surely have loads more power! (y)

*if it all fits anyway lol*
