My throttle body

I bought a Honda Trx700xx throttle body off of eBay. I also ordered a throttle boot for it from the local dealer. The boot fits right up to the head on the Xr fine. It is a little snug but it fits. The intake side of the throttle body is smaller than the stock carb or the Edelbrock that is going to get replaced. I may have to machine an adapter for this connection. The other possiblity would be to make a new airbox that that I could have more room for the Microsquirt that I am going to buy along with a better regulator/rectifier. I am thinking of using the Ltr450 fuel pump. I got a fuel tank from a Ltr450 that has the pressure regulator and the filter assembly with it. That should be in on Wednesday. Now I just need to reassemble the engine and get to work on this. I just started back into school so this is a back project to graduating. Thanks for the help, Tony
