SVT, RS question...

Not an engine junkie, but I am just curious... so here it goes:

Is it at all possible to put my svtís 67 MM throttle body in an RS?

I havenít looked under the hood of one in a while, but I noticed that they come with a stock 57, but there is a 63 upgraded throttle body, just seems kinda tiny.

Lastly... how drastic, and potentially dangerous, would the change be if it was?
I know it would really mess up the air/fuel ratio, right?

Why would you want to do that for? You really think you can reengineer what the Ford engineers have done?

Maybe? Maybe not? Although that question is slightly unfair. Technically all modifying is “Re-enigineering, isn’t it?

No reason to put a svt t/b on a rs.........motor.

No, it's impossible:

SVT uses a throttle-cable
RS uses an electric motor/Drive-by-wire
