thanks I kind of figured that there should be a gap in it but I wasn't quite sure if the electronic throttle just automatically open a gap when it started or what,

Ok time to get this thing polished up!

Thanks for the followup! Hopefully you do decide to sell one cause I'd love to do this!

Dude, you should make some cleanning to that battery, it seems like is going to eat you engine with that sulfate! Nice to know your TB polished worked, I'm trying the procedure on my 6.

engine bay has been detailed since then, battery too haha

it was the battery out of my wrangler so it never got cleaned. the method works pretty well, the only thing i wish i would have done was a fine polishing after the porting, ive sold a few now to others on the forum, and worked some for friends
