    Really Need Help!

    I am having a hard time finding the kit to eliminate the coolant lines that run under the intake manifold on my 98 Pontiac Trans Am.

    This is usually my daily driver but has been out for a week now with the mods that I am doing.

    Any information on where to buy them would help me out.

    Just type in "throttle body bypass" in eBay and you will get a ton!

    did you ever feel like your brain left you? found them but im wondering if theres any drawbacks to doing this if the car is driven in cold weather. better be a noticeable difference if i have to hook and unhook every spring and fall.

    I live in Florida so I could care less! If I lived up north, I probably wouldn't do it. You are not going to feel a difference either way. Its just a supporting mod.

    I am not talking about bypassing them. I am taking about removing them all together.

    To do this u have to plut the ports in the block.

    you have to get rid of the rear set and replace them with the newer style plugs, or grind the bottom of the intake to get it to clear if your talking about the steam lines....to by pass the TB just use a small peice of hose to connect to two ports coming off the hard line to the TB in a hoop......the TB bypass is a different mod than the intake steam lines
