^ yea, i'm pretty sure it doesn't fit back, atleast i'm 100% positive both 3.5 swaps i've done it not fitting.

also a RL VSS does infact work.

I also personally like the RL diff more then the legend diff b/c its got better cooling fins since its designed not to be cooled like the legend diff, but probably doesn't make a huge difference.

Is it possible to use the RL TPS portion of the throttle body on a 3.5 hybrid? Using the type 2 intake manifold btw..

If not, what's the difference between the TPS's(?)?

[QUOTE=sr5guy;213706]Identical Parts

A/C Compressor (93-95 Legend only, 91-92 must use Legend or change manifold)

Or change to which manifold if attempting to use the 3.5 AC Compressor

Your question has been answered in your other thread, but since you asked it here as well:

Step 1. Click Search
Step 2. Type in "A/C Compressor Manifold"
Step 3. Find this:

Anyone want to post up the Tap size for the valve cover if you want to use the RL Valve Cover? Would be a nice addition to this thread and is one hell of a search trying to find the information.

I believe it is a 16x1.5 but I have yet to confirm that.

That's kind of outside the purpose of the thread. It's something easily measured with a pair of calipers. Also, most people swap over the Legend's valve covers to eliminate this step.

I know most people swap the valve covers, but mine had paint or something on them that was only half destroyed while hot tanking and I have so much on my plate working on engine/differential/transmission/rack and pinion that I would rather just tap a hole and be done with it.

Also, it isn't outside the purpose of this thread. This thread is interchange and parts that can be used. As it says in the first post the RL valve covers can be used, but the hole has to be drilled and tapped.

Knowing what size tap would be part of the parts interchange.

I would like to find out what is difference b/t the RL and Legend Diff??? Ive heard that they can interchange but the RL would need some machining??? Is this correct?... Id like to use the RLs since im still driving my 3.2 while building the 3.5. I would also like to add a PG and mount it back on the motor....this way I have least amount of downtime during swaps.

Please lemme kno if anyone has any info.
