    Was there a way to compensate or fix this issue? I wonder if all of them are like this.

    wow..ok ..get a lid..get headers and a y pipe...go stainless steal..Ss does not get rusty and look like shit..my SS qtps look amazing and will always look amazing..you install them and dont have to worry about SS ever again...so do stainless steel long tube headers...dont worry about the TB..your stock one is more then efficient for the ls6/ls1.....the ls6 will give you a noticable increase over the ls1. 01-02 ls1s have the ls6 already....then get a tune and you will be ready to rock. after all that..then you can see how you feel and go from there..dont worry about spacers and all that...just keep your stocker..or at most...send it in to shaner of a s3

    And they are WAY overpriced.
    And they have terrible customer service.
    And their HP claims are outrageous.

    I never had any problems with it, except for when I took out the buterfly valve and did not put it back in properly but that was a quick fix just loosen the two screws a little and move it around till it seated back into its proper place, but other than that I have had nothing but good times with it. If you do just adjust the TB lever screw till its right.

    I'm not sure. All I know is that the kid who had the car before me screwed everything up royally. I'm not sure if the tb was even for the correct year. It put alot of tension on the throttle cable. All I know is I was glad to take it out

    I think im gonna go for the 80mm BBK unit seems like a nice piece to me?

    *Always wanted to know what would be more beneficial-getting the BBK TB or porting the stocker?

    Well I wanted to do the LS6 intake manifold along with the BBK 80mm TB. However I still have to look into and see if the ported stocker is better.

    has anyone heard anything on that new street warrior intake? If you go with an ls6, i'd get it ported. I've also heard people getting bigger tb's like 104 mm? but those are with the new ls3 intakes i believe.....someone correct me if im wrong. i havent heard too much about that.

    the street warrior is not coming out in our life time...the ls6 has seen minimal gains from porting ...the ls2 has seen good gains but not the ls6...the 104s and so forth are for the ls3 and ls7 intakes or of course the new 102 big mouth

    And those will bolt right up for us? What kind of gains can you get from those intakes? I just havent heard much about people switching out their intakes on f bodies for the ls2/3/7 intakes.

    Na no brick like feeling it is really smooth and helped my throttle response a lot. I like it and have had zero problems. The problem Ramairgod84 had with his TB almost sounds like the spring the helps close the TB butterfly valve was not put back in properly maybe the kid wound it up too much causeing it to be hard to pull the TB butterfly valve open, but it also could be a number of other things too, if you mess with the wrong components in any part you can mess it up.

    Only thing they are good for is installing a wet nitrous nozzle. Kinda hard to do on the original accordion design.
