Problems I've encountered so far have NO evidence to support any relation to the TB itself. The problems are occuring with regard to my TCC Lockup, with throttle percentages around 1/4-1/3.
As of now it may be ignition related as I still have original Coil packs and ignition module, or TCC related. It doesn't do it when the car is still in closed loop mode, but once it'* warmer and warmer it appears more, and generally my car does seem to have much greater pickup when it'* not warmed up yet.
Then again, the modded TB'* strengths are the MUCH smoother airflow at part throttle, this will give more Air, and smoother air into each cyl. Maybe the TCC can't cope with the extra power when in lockup on my 148k mile car?
Tomorrow I plan on doing some more data logging runs to see any glaring differences between cold numbers, and warmed up numbers.
It should be noted I had a stored code 42 when we hooked up the laptop to the car the first time (still on Stock TB). We cleared it and it hasn't come back again.
