Default Throttle Body question

According to http://www.zzperformance.com/zzp/pro...tplug_info.htm

Quote:
How long does it take to install ... <snipped>
...the L36 engine does not use a consumable throttle body gasket, there are no parts or supplies needed to perform the installation.
So, does this mean if I want to remove and clean my Throttle Body, I shouldn't need to get a new gasket? I know there'* a chance of ruining the gasket, but let'* go with best case scenario on this.

Thanks folks!

You have an engine with a code of "K" correct?

Anyways, my "magic book of factory information on 1995 H-bodies" says there is a gasket there. There is a chance that the gaskets were used in a 1995 but were discontinued in later years. Call up a dealer and ask them. If they have one in stock then there is one. lol

Most all of the gaskets on the Vin-K are A hard plastic with a silicon bead around them, they are not cork or anyother gasket material. Both the oil pan and the transmiission pan has this type of gasket on them. So I would assume this is the type of gasket zzperfomance is talking about.

Sounds like High Temp Silicone to me, which is a good thing. Non-consumable!
