    What kind of throttle body did you get?
    You can always do a TB bypass and run the line from the radiator straight to the coolant line on the driver side of the front of the intake.

    sounds like a easy fix
    you dont live in a climate where that kind of heat is needed to heat your fuel.
    tb bypass is the first thing i do when i get new ls based vehichle.

    +1 on the TB bypass mod, write-up on ls1howto. I had to do the same when I installed my NW tb.
    I just went to the hardware store and picked up a couple brass pieces (barbed on one end and threaded on the other) to go from the 5/16" to 1/4" to connect the two lines.
