    Throttle Body Market

    So... at long last i bought myself a LS6 intake
    now i need a TB... what should i get? or should i just PnP my stocker?
    i dont want to have to mess with ordering a new throttle cable (as i wouldve had to when i bought an 01 PnP TB)
    so i need one that can enable me to use my same linkage cable
    suggestions? thanks

    Buy a stock p&p from eBay.. $50 or so and keep your stock to tb.
    It's worth it I had it in both of mi ls1 cars would buy it again if I beed to.

    I would buy an aftermarket unless I have the fast intake.

    I agree. Good mod on a budget.

    For what it's worth, my throttle body is the most noticeable mod I've done since I got my car (a little more impact than my SFCs, it seems).

    i'd do as already suggested: buy a 2nd TB and get it P&P to go with the ls6 intake.

    If your stock why bother?

    Bolt it on and take the 20 HP and be happy,thats what I am going to do.

    If you ever do H/C you can get $300 back towards a new Fast intake by selling it.

    i couldnt find photoz but I found some for about the same price. I was thinking on giving this pnp a try myself. The only thing Im not sure on how to do is the bump stop mod since my scanner dont read the value of the tps. Can I use a voltmeter? and how much does the voltage has to read?

    If not then I will buy a pnp TB

    tech stickies section? I dont see anything. I found some info in install university but it talks about blade degree angle not voltage reading.
