cocker from a borg body?

so i've heard that borgs are machined from merlin extrusion so that got me wondering if you could make a cocker using an mq2 and a borg body? new 06 bodies are pretty cheap on ebay now so maybe i'll give this a go.

has anyone tried this before?

Try it. I know that the front block bolt is a lot bigger than a standard cocker, so that might be an issue. But there is even the section cut out for the pump arm. I don't see why it couldn't be done if a mq fits. You could just mid-block it so you don't need a back block machined also.

All you will need to do Is get an 11/16th MQ2 Valve and fit it into the body of the borg, Then you need to cut middy slots for a bolt and sled. Then you will have to find a banjo bolt that fits the front of the body. Then you must fit a cocker board into the frame.

what if you were to make it a mq/airbolt cocker.. then you could use a stock macdev lpr... use the air passages that it has now.. hell.. you could even use a cyborg ram in the bottem tube as the airbolt ram.. then you could also use the stock cyborg noid too.. sounds pretty easy.. just need to drill a hole for the mq wires to go thru.. and figure out a way to fit a jam nut in there to keep the mq in place.. then find a board that it could all run off of..
