Interesting feedback about the Gen 2 control arms. Not sure I could be bothered now...

Well apparently the bigger throttle body delivers more power (noticeable) but I have also heard that it results in greater fuel efficiency. Not sure how.

I am keen to do the swap in any case as I am getting sick of my Paj struggling to idle when it gets warm. When it first started to happen I had a bit of dirt in the throttle body, and it seems that although it gets a clean every 6 months, I still get erratic idling when its been sitting and idling for longer than a couple of minutes. Soooooooooo annoying.

Just need to find the right throttle body now (at the right price). Just make sure its a throttle body from a NL model (SOHC). The other models dont fit as well and require a lot of grinding apparently.

The biggest difference I have seen from Gen 1 to Gen 2 is -
a the Ball joints
b the actual arm is completely boxed in on the Gen 2 and likely to be a lot stronger.

Depending on how you use your wagon its debatable whether gen 2 arms are needed but if you are anything like me (and totally dumb when off road) then they are a good idea in my book
