Send a PM to SC2150 and he will give you the instructions. I know it sounds shady doing the entire purchase through private messages instead of a storefront, but they're still getting the website up and running.

I know y'all are very busy and pushing these things out a quickly as possible, but I'm just curious... I'm sure others are too. Thanks.
Probably would be better to post this in the Ported Throttle Body thread since this one is just my review of the product - http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=216583 - or send a PM to Tracey directly.

I promised my better half I would stop spending money on my camaro. Well, I'm reading reviews and find myself just needing to get the ported throttle body. I swear, Ijust got on the web site to look and somehow managed to purchase one. I don't know what happened. I don't rememeber a thing. There has to be a support club for this! She's going to be mad. But at least I'll have better throttle response. A guy's gotta to what a guy's got do.

Since this is a GM factory TB, the tech at your local Chevy dealer would probably never know it has been modified, correct? If so I would love to have one of these on my 2012.

At a casual glance he wouldn't. If he really got to looking he could tell. Even if they did notice there isn't much of an argument to be made that it would have any negative effects.

That sounds good enough for me I will have to order one then.
Thanks.

I cannot find them listed on your website. Do you sell them or does another vendor?

We have not added the 2012 throttle bodies to the website yet because we have not received them yet. Once we do they will be added.

Who can explain the "real" difference? It's been written in these threads a dozen times. Read some more, as it's out there.

Can you buy a kit to do the same thing as what the ported throttle body does? Nope.

Thanks Johnny B - I was asking more about the physical difference. What is "porting" and what does the machinist actually do to it? I understand the performance difference.

As i understand it when it is ported it changes the chacteristics of the airflow to make it more Efficent. It also enlarges the inlet to create a higher velocity airflow creating more of a venturi which in effect creates a ram effect into the engine.
I am sure it's more technical than that but can get an idea why it makes an improvement in performance.
