Default Just purchased 5-speed sc300 'project'


I have a 1995 SC300 5-speed 'project car' that currently has a JDM throttle body and possibly a JDM intake plenum (not sure). To pass California smog I need to install a U.S./Federal non-California throttle body. The car was originally sold in the U.S. but not in California. Are the manual and automatic throttle bodies for the '95 the same? I have located a '95 Federal throttle body but I don't know if it's from an automatic or a five-speed. Chances are it's from an automatic. Hopefully it doesn't matter. I've also located a '92 throttle body with the attached intake plenum that the seller says is from an automatic. Is that compatible?

This is a close-up of the current JDM throttle body which only has a single port open. No U.S. EGR vacuum port and I'm not sure what the third one is for (will find out later).

Thank you in advance....
