Default Picked up a $25 throttle body today

It came complete with MAF, TPS, IAC, MAF screen, and just for kicks they left the accordion tube on it with the IAT still plugged in. $26.75 after tax. Seemed like one heck of a deal to me.

By the way, they have more TBs for the same price... Anybody interested? If I can get my hands on one or two of 'em I could ship them out whoever wants one.

If you find one at that price for a 95-97 L36 with the 4T60-E, Will be 2 Vacume ports on the throttle body... For that price I'd be very interested, especially if it had all of the goodies on it...LOL

That is an EXCELLENT price, usually they sell the TB alone at a wrecker for 40+.
Good find!

Nice find - would make for a great core charge or a custom porting project. Are they the '99+ style TB?

I'll see what I can do for ya, Junior. They had another one there, but it had a junk MAF sensor. Everything else was intact, though. The one I got is from a '96 Lesabre, so it has the vac ports, which is what I need as well.

I want one from a 96 but don't have the cash right now.
The sensors alone are worth it.

I know... I nearly flipped when he quoted the price. I'm very pleased with the deal I got. Sure you can't spare $25?

Not a bad deal -but still not as good as my 95 L67 TB with all attaching sensors and MAF screen for $10.

Just the TPS alone is worth $25 from a yard.

So what are the plans for the new TB? Sending it in to ZZP? Home porting?
If you're going to port it out yourself you better be good -TB'* are a sensitive thing to be monkeying with -ain't no exhaust manifold.
