    Throttle Bodies-Options?

    So I have sent my throttle body to Scott Jantzer and after reading a few threads on LS1 Tech and some of his E-Bay feedback, it looks as though I have been ripped off. I gave him a spare TB for credit, looks like thats gone as well. I am now wondering what I should do to get my car running again. I am not using Shaner either, talked to him last fall and he didn't seem too motivated to get my business. Plus I don't have a core to send him anyway. Anyone know where I can get a decent ported and polished throttle body? Thanks in advance.

    I still have my stock one. I'm currently using one from S2 Performance. I got mine from the same guy I bought mine with the LS6 Intake last OCT from. They go for $150 with a core charge.

    I'll sell you my stock one (for a core use) if your interest for $35 plus shipping.


    EDIT: Sorry I just read you have look at Shaner already. If you still want it for a core just let me know.

    Could always buy a new 80mm or even 85mm off jegs. Run you into the $200 range though.

    I must have missed those, the TB's I saw were way up there, $400-$500 range.

    Thanks for the help and suggestions guys!

    I got this from E-Bay this AM:

    Dear ,

    Hi,

    I'm pretty sure I got them. I will get it straightened out tomorrow.

    thx.

    He is pretty sure he got them?! WTF? I put them in the mail on the 21st of March and paid for a three day ship. I understand that it takes time to port and polish the thing but his add says more than 10 on E-Bay so I figured he would take mine and place it on a shelf and send me aTB that had been ported and polished already. I am not too pleased at this point.

    I apologize, it was summit, not jeggs. They have a few TB's on there that are $400, but I've been considering the 80mm myself, part #TFS-24080.

    As far as eBay goes, threaten him by saying your going to report him to eBay, ruin his reputation rating, etc. See how fast he moves then, especially if he has a high rating. If he still doesn't do anything, then run his name through the coals.
