November 12, 2005removing the TB Flange? throttle body ???
have no idea what your talking about, elaborate for us ( me anyway )
November 12, 2005Yeah the flange in the throttle body. I saw a guy say something about it in a few post below but I didn't see any directions about doing this..
November 12, 2005I think hes talking about Hennessy800TT's post in the topic cheap tricks:no joke..he said "Ok, I got plenty of BS horsepower jokes but The only usful one I can think of that's not listed is removing the flange on the butterfly in the TB." not sure what that means either but just lettin u know where he got that from..
November 13, 2005im pretty sure hes talking about the little flange thats riveted onto the TB's butterfly. If you drill out the rivets, takes the flange thing out, and refill the holes you made its supposed to increase your response or power a little. I think he said he could notice it at higher RPM's, which makes sense since itll improve flow at WOT.
November 13, 2005which year truck are you referring to? etc or not?
December 13, 2005it's very easy to do...even for a noob like me...just remove the trottle body, remove the blade (2 screws) use a dremal or drill to drill out the rivits ( a little polishing couldn't hurt while you've got it out. then use some JB weld to fill in th holes. you'll need to drill out a hole the exact same size as the small hole in the restrictor plate ( to allow the engine to idle) just remember to measure what size hole you'll need. You'll definatly feel the HP increase and low end torque.
