I hear what your saying about the blades.
I have a 1st Gen 1994. Has anyone rigged the linkage so that both blades open and close at the same time instead of a "progressive opening secondary"? I dont want to change out the entire Gen 1 intake manifold and swap to Gen 2. I could prob figure it out if I had a Gen 1 TB in hand, but Im trying to do some research on it 1st..
