Vmax throttle body install from Tampa Tuning

Ive had a couple guys inquire about if its hard to install the Vmax throttle body sold by Tampa Tuning. It really is a quick easy install so I thought Id post a couple step by step videos I made last night. If you have an aftermarket CAI, the process is the same, it just may be easier to remove both ends of the intake tube.

each picture is a video:

I will second this. It is literally the easiest mod ever, just 4 bolts (10mm)
It literally took less than 5 minutes and that includes stopping to shotgun a beer.

Forgot to mention, this is also the best mod I have done so far. INSTANT throttle response, acceleration is so very much smoother now, and I have noticed an additional 2-3 MPG

A question came up if the air tube will still fit over the Vmax ported throttle body. Yes, the outer diameter of the throttle body doesnt change.

Question. Since your taking the sensors off, do you need to disconnect the battery before the I stall? I am guessing its the same for a V6 LFX engine correct.

Guys add cold air intakes everyday and that doesnt void a warranty so a OEM professionally ported throttle body shouldnt either.

I don't do drop shipping on the throttle body. I actually stock them and have them to you in 2-3 days with a Paypal purchase.

Guys, since this is a DIY thread, please PM me with questions about purchasing the Vmax CnC ported throttle bodies. So it doesn't get mucked up as a sales thread.

Thanks
Phil

Phil,
I remember a post by a member warning about the relatively light torque specs on the TB mounting bolts. Can you quote those specs here and are they included in the installation instructions furnished with the part?

I am not certain, but I believe that the torque specs for the TB bolts is 100 inch pounds. You will notice that it is quite easy to unfasten the stock bolts. You do not want to strip the threads in the manifold.
