You need the larger intake pipes too and their mounting plates.

And then a remap, otherwise the engine will run lean.

Didn't someone mention that if you reset the managemaent system and then let it run that it would re-adjust for the increased airflow?
Might be mistaken but thought I saw this somewhere?

I think it would work, we have a member on here with a 3.2 engine running stock 2.5 management and all is fine.

Well I've heard of Ferrari throttle bodies on 3.7 and 3.8 conversions...

how about a 2.5 throttle body on a 2.0 TS???

No, the throttle body is the same and the plenum outlets are the same diameter IIRC.
