I'm sure of it. They're literally a 8 minute job. It takes me longer to get a CC approval on my Note II than it does to install one.

Good times!

Skip, it is soooo easy to remove/replace the TB. If you can turn a wrench you can do it in 10 minutes, and that's going slow.

I have pulled and replaced mine several times.

If you want, you can swing up here and I'll help you, but you really don't need it!

I always follow a general rule: Don't cut anything unless completely sure what it is. It has been working for me for years. Anyone can handle a TB install.

Put mine on last night WOW what a job I wish all mods were this easy. It took longer to find the torque for the throttle body bolts (which I found to be 85in/lbs) than to replace it. All I can say is it's SNAPPIER great mod for the money. Buy the way Tyler mine is on its way back.

Hmmm...

If you look at this DIY guide for cleaning your intake valves, it describes the removal/replacement of the TB. Look at steps 4, 15, and 19 for removal, and 41 for reinstallation.

It's pretty much:
  1. Loosen hose clamp attaching intake air tube to TB, and pull tube away from TB. You can remove the tube completely, if you want to get it out of the way
  2. Slide red clip back from TB electrical connector. Remove connector by pulling out (NOTE: I had to squeeze the black clip that the red piece slides into to remove mine.)
  3. Remove 4 TB bolts with a 10mm socket
  4. Install new TB, tightening the 4 bolts to 9 ft-lb (this is for the LFX, not sure about others)
  5. Replace electrical connector and slide red locking clip back in place
  6. Reinstall air tube and tighten hose clamp
  7. Profit!

Thanks for the heads up. I will have to save up for this and install it.

I have finally joined the vmaxx elite, got my ported throttle body in today for my lfx, from Apex, and the difference is noticeable in both response and hp gains. Great product, easy install, and great customer service from Apex. I highly recommend this mod

Is there a link to purchase? The link on page 3 of this post says "404 not found". I am getting the mod itch again, and this is next on my list of things to scratch.

After this I guess will either be a CC or exhaust. I would hate for it to sound like a weed whacker, so I might have to research this a bit.
