hahah... I just crack up every time I see some bogus attempt to rip off someone. Here's the latest:

HAVE YOU SEEN THE TRD SUPRA OR THE GREDDY FLAGSHIP TT? THEY BOTH HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON...A MODIFIED THOTTLE BODY. AUCTION IS FOR THE PARTS AND INSTRUCTIONS TO INSTALL THIS MOD THE WAY THE ENGINEERS DO.
I KNOW THAT YOU ARE THINKING, $25 DOLLARS(THE SHIPPED PRICE!) IS A LITTLE STEEP FOR SOMETHING YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE A PICTURE OF (I CAN'T SHOW IT OVER THE NET UNTILL THE PATENT REGISTERS), SO I PERSONALLY GAURANTEE THIS MOD WILL LOWER YOUR INTAKE TEMP!!! THE IDEA BEHIND IT IS SIMPLE, COOLER AIR MEANS MORE HORSEPOWER!!!

1.THIS IS NOT SOME BOGUS CHIP!!! IT DOES NOT PLAY TRICKS ON YOUR ECU!!! 2.IT IS AN ACTUAL PART YOU CAN INSTALL!!! 3.IT WILL NOT HURT YOU CAR OR CHANGE YOUR EMISSIONS!!! 4.TRY IT OR GET LEFT OUT!!! 5.MOST OF THE FASTEST STREET RACERS IN SOUTH FLORIDA ALL READY RUN THIS MOD, IT IS THAT GOOD!!! 6. WE GOT 5HP OUT OF A "DX" IMAGINE THE GAINS YOU COULD SEE *NEW* I HAVE KITS FOR ALL YEARS OF THE SUPRA!!!!!!

HURRY WE ARE RUNNING OUT!!!



HAHAHAH.....$25 for someone to tell you the TB coolant bypass mod!

Ok...

At the risk of sounding stupid, what is the "throttle body coolant bypass mod"? I mean, what is its purpose and how is it done? What is the real benefit?

I know my car pretty well, and I thought I knew most of the little tricks we all do - but this one is new to me.

Stephen,
The two small hoses connected to the front and rear of your TB pass hot coolant through it to warm the intake charge. This helps keep the intake charge a uniform temp and makes it easier for the ECU to keep emissions down.
A $.75 piece of tubing and a couple of small hose clamps will accomplish the bypass. :)

Jamie,

Thanks for the tip. I know about the two coolant lines you're speaking of, I just never thought of the benefit to cool the intake charge by bypassing how it's routed through the TB. I'll have to try that.

It would be interesting to see what happens at Smog check time, if it has any ill effects at all.

Thank you ma'am ;)

I guess I was in the same boat as Stephen. Is there a noticeable seat-o-the-pants difference when doing this bypass? Is there any detriment to doing this? If there are no ill effects, this would be a must-do for all of us! Thanks.

I didn't notice anyting...but I feel good to know that there is no coolant running amok throughout my throttle body. :) I've had no probs as the coolant still goes to where it's supposed to, just takes the roundabout and stays out of the TB. The only thing I can think of is the coolant sitting in the TB might get nasty, but if you're worried then get a hose and gently blow all the coolant out leaving water OR remove the TB completly and blow it out with compressed air OR blow it out with compressd air in the car and get coolant all over the place :?

I know people who have seen a reliable and noticable drop in EGTSs from performing this mod on a new turboed supra. This does screw up some cars though. If you do this to a 4AGE it will not idle properly at all anymore. Theres some sensor thing in the tb that needs to be heated up to provide the right signals to the ecu. I don't think this an issue on supras, but you may get driveablity issues in sub zero weather.

This is an old hot rodders trick, its been around for decades, and now you can buy it on ebay! Too funny :)
