Well, i bought the new Felpro gasket for the TB on my car, pulled it off, cleaned the CRAP out of it, that backing plate had black crud on it, cleaned out the inlet on the SC, got it perfect. Changed the air filter, and put in new NGK TR-55 V power plugs. The car idles perfectly now, warmed up and cold. I'm happy with that!
Pics to come soon with a little write up.

So now the cars runs as good as it looks!

Sounds like a lot of tedious cleaning, but well worth the results. Great job!

Hehehe too hot in Arizona..how about Oregon lol...
Right now its a nice even 50 with rain outside....compared to a nice even 105 in the blistering sun setting up a sunshade...

I also removed the maf sensor when i did this, too expensive and to easy to break the wire inside of it.

Little bit of coolant will leak all over the place, one thing i noticed, the linkage cover/ Power steering resivor mounting bracket (if L67 engine), the bolt on the lower right side, is a double, remove the one for the bracket, then behind the arm is another bolt...hehe i didnt notice that one right away, but when i tried to remove the TB, i did lol

For some reason i didnt get a dirty pic of it, it was just as black as the inlet on the SC intake, it took about 15 minutes of scrubing to get it polished up like that.

I also decided to give the inlet on the SC a bit of attention, that crap was black as tar, trust me LOL
