    TB by pass

    Ok so i was trying to do my throttle body bypass. I know how to do it, but i don't know what material to use. My question is what material should i use for the throttle body plugs and what kind of hose or hose connectors and were to get them? i guess ill try auto zone but im not sure they make them there.

    A generic set of vacuum caps will seal the throttle body tubes. Should be able to get them at just about any parts store.

    If you're talking about the tubes in the bottom of the TB, just take them out. They will pull out. There is no need for them any more.

    This if you want. It is not necessary to plug them.

    I just used some generic plugs like the pic above. For the hose connector, I think it was a 3/8 barbed connector.

    Both found at oreilly.

    Edit. Looked just like this
