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.

Recieved mine yesterday, installed today & core shipped back for the next customer


All I can say to Pete & the crew is WOW & THANKS!!!!!

The car feels so much better at low rpm idle takeoffs (where before it lugged & chattered briefly before down gear change), it even now has cleaner shifts thru the entire rev band. I have a custom cat back magnaflow exhaust on the car, but no CAI like many others. This is a great improvement. I have to be honest that I was skeptical of this being as good as advertised, but now say it's the best low cost modification I have ever applied to any vehicle.

As many others have said -- the car is now like it should have been from the factory.

If you guys & gals are not already waiting, you can get one NOW from Mike Norris --> http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=242686

The sale went smooth, shipping was fast, and communication was great!
