    Take the 2 lines off the T/B and take a small steel line and clamp them together...............

    No problem here to help. It has been some years since I did one but to make it clean and un seen I think I use to buy a 3 or 6" piece of steel line @ Checkers and make two pieces out of the steel line and a foot of hose and a pack of clamps.
    Place the steel line in your one stock hose than clamp the new rubber hose to that and then you can tuck and hide it attaching the other steel piece to that and clamping to the other stock hose.

    Make sense???

    yeah that does make sense. that would be a good way to do it and prolly work out better than just the pipe with clamps. I'm wanting to do this because I used the laser temp thingy and reallized that the throttle body really heats up because of the coolant

    yeah. I'm going to the the hardware store for a few things tomorrow so I will prolly pick up the parts and do it then. I can't wait to see how it works.
