I may be buying a throttle body for a 2.3 for my 2.2, but it comes with the whole intake also, just wanted to know if it would work on my truck also. If not i don't care, i am getting the both for real cheap anyway.

To answer your question, No it will not.

How do I know? I bought one and tried awhile back. The ports aren't the right shape and the bolt pattern is way off. Also I don't think it has a location for the injectors like the 2.2L manifold.

It would be a bad ass manifold to use, because it would locate the throttle body toward the radiator and would function like a ram air setup.

To use it you would need to do some custom work. What I was going to do was have a flange made by a CNC shop to accept the 2.2L fuel rail and then match the ports on the 2.3L manifold with it transitioning to the correct port and bolt pattern for the 2.2L head. The only other thing I can think of is the throttle cable and bracket might need reworked, and you would have to relocate the Map sensor to the new manifold.

Now I wish I still had the 2.2L :D
