I want to get one, but have just a little mechanical skill. A write up on a Type I to a Type II manifold would be a nice DIY.

Alright. i have both intake manifolds infront of me. type 1 and 2. do i need to buy a type 2 egr valve? i only have the jdm type 1 and usdm type 1.
can the type 1 usdm or jdm bolt up to the type 2 manifold. as far as the pair pipe goes i am just taking it off because I have OBX racing headers going on the car when i put it all together.
please help thanks

I dont see how it will bolt right back up
Do I need to buy a type 2 EGR valve i think i asked again oh well sry.

i did the swap and yes you can use the type 1 egr valve, i believe they are the same for type 1 and 2. and yes it does bolt up to a type 2 trust me.
