    Thumbs up NEW Throttle Body Bypass

    For those of you who don't want to use the old TB bypass because your up north; I got something that will work for you! Get a 1/4" ball valve with two 5/16" adapters and two hose clamps. Now cut only one of the hoses on the TB, preferably the one sending flow in, but it doesn't matter. Place the ball valve in between and open to allow coolant to flow through TB. Close it to return to stock flow. Easy and you can switch back to flow open! I have pics here;

    If you can't find them at Home Depot I will send one to you for price on the link. Also have TB After Cooler (TBAC) that I'm testing now. That's how I came up with this new trick. Now everyone can get that extra HP for under 20 bucks!

    EXCELLENT THREAD! I'm sure this will help out a lot of people, myself included. I've always wanted to make use of the TB bypass free mod, but live in Indiana so have been reluctant to do so with frequent cold temps here.

    My only concern is the return feed. It gets blocked by the valve when it is off. But I see no purpose for it other than sending coolant through TB. Anyone have any info on this?

    well, one solution could be to drop in a t-fitting and another valve after that to get better flow control.

    Hmmmm....would you need 2 t-fittings? One for the exit flow? Me thinks yes. Still it will be good to go!
