DIY: Swapping S85 throttles to S65 (Vice Versa)

Just a quick write up explain the similarities and differences between the M5/M6 throttles actuators and the M3 ones. First of all, they are 99% exactly the same! Only one difference between the two. And that is the angle of the "arm" or some people call it, the "elbow" of the units. Look at the pics for clearer understanding.

If for some reason, you end up finding a cheap M5 unit on the market or I accidentally send you an M5 one instead of an M3 unit, it will take two minutes to swap the elbows out.

Parts and tools: The only tool you need is a 13mm wrench and something to secure the elbow with so you don't put force on the bolt when opening it. Watch video for complete instructions.

Should the angle of it matters, the gear inside of it is pretty large. Im running an E60 m5 throttle actuator on one bank and I hadn't had any issues.
