i want to take the reeds out of my '05 f7 efi and replace them with some new stock reed pedals cause sled has 3000 miles on and by reading from other posts this would be a good time as any to do. i just had a question though. people who have changed their reeds have you just been able to push the throttle body back into the airboot for enough room. or how does a person get enough room to get the throttle bodies out of the way. i dont wnat to drain the coolant if i dont have too. looks like there is enough room to push them down and out. how are people doing it on theirs? thanks.

I took mine apart to put v force in. I had to take basicly the whole front apart, to make it easy. It took me about 30 mins. to change them out.

so what your saying is that you had to take hood, airbox all off... then bring the rubber air boot into the frame more to give you more room for the throttle bodies to move back? thanks.

Yep what he said. But be careful not to break the coolant line running to the throttle body we broke mine.

There is a molded rubber reed stuffer on the stock intake boot that needs to be cut off in order for the boots to work with the v force reeds. I installed a set in my 05 f7 but I didn't notice any differance. It didn't hurt performance either.
