How To- TB Bypass

This is a very simple modification for the people in the Southren States, but in the Northren States I don't recommend it (if it gets below freezing).

Basically what we're accomplishing here is to remove the coolant that goes to your throttle body to keep the air from becoming superheated enroute to the engine.

Step One: (Optional)

Remove Intake if you have one, if stock, remove the air box all the way to the throttle body.

Step Two: (Optional)

Remove the throttle body, this enables you to get to the hoses easier, six 12MM bolts total, be careful and don't let them drop!

Step Three:

Remove hoses from the throttle body it self! Put a towel underneath it and make sure the motors cold.

Step Four:

Take ONE hose [#1] off from the motor, and then loop around the other hose [to #2] that's left and reclamp it.

Step Five:

Take new vacuum hose, and loop it around on the old passage in the throttle body. [#1 to #2]

Step Six:

Put everything back into place, test for leaks (visual) and then test drive it, have a gallon of coolant ready if you doubt your self.

slightly cooler air passing though the intake mani... resulting in retained hp when driving for some period. Decreases some of the lag when the engine bogs down after the engine gets really hot. Works rather well with Outlaw TB spacers combined.
