52mm Throttle Body Install

I had $200 burning a hole in my pocket last fall so I figured this would be a simple bolt-on that will give a small gain in HP until I have enough to build the valvetrain out and rebuild the reciprocating assembly.


After running it for a while I realized the slots milled from the idle air passage to the main plenum runners was a big no-no, and later used some j-b weld to close them up. I also discovered when I did this that in my haste to get it done I forgot to remove the original throttlebody to plenum gasket, but didn’t forget to install the new one supplied. Duh.
