Ported throttle is installed......

and now I know what everyone has been talking about having that "dead spot". It's gone !!!!! Throttle response is so much better, acceleration in the low end has improved and when you "get on it" you will definitely see the difference in the new throttle. Best of all, it was easier to install than the CAI cold air intake. Already dropped the old one off at UPS to speed up delivery for someone else.

It costs $150, plus $15 shipping, plus a refundable core charge of $200 and you also have to pay the shipping to get your core back to them.

There's a thread on here with a graph showing the gains in both HP and torque. The part is more about throttle response than about peak gains, however.

Yeah, for those that didn't realize there was a dead spot, installing the ported TB will make you a believer.

Throttle body installed last night along with Air scoop ( already had CAI intake ) and washer relocation kit. Haven't had time to do some good WOT from a stop yet. I'll install my Gtech-Pro and see what has changed on my 60' times. So far just driving home last night and taking things easy with a Holiday weekend, things feel good, not drastic but worth the investment. While I was swapping out parts I also cleaned the little downtube in the front of the intake right behind the T/B. It contained a fair amount of residue, only 3800 miles on my car. Glad I installed an RX catch can recently.
