Does anyone know if the mounting for the BBK TB is the same as the FC TB.
I own the BBK and am wondering if the FC mounting bracket for the ATX would work.

Stock = 2642 mm2
BBK = 3019 mm2
or over a 14% increase in area.

Of course if you believe that bigger is always better, ignore this and go back to being ignorant.

What is wrong with going 2.5 times the surface area of stock...

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Oh yea, your question. I think everyone forgot that you asked a question. I guess nobody knows the answer, some of us just like to post even if it has nothing to do with the topic. What was the topic again?
