We know what you did with your car, truck, and shop today. We also know what you just added to your tool chest. So what are you going to do with all those shops, trucks, and tools? Tell us what parts you bought today, and what plans you have for them.

Today, I received in the mail a used L36 throttle body with MAF, TPS, and IAC valve for $10 plus shipping.

I don't even need any of that, but seeing as how a MAF sensor costs $150 new, it was spare parts that I couldn't resist.

As Justin found out firsthand with his unwanted cam, I love snatching up parts for far below retail cost.

Plus, maybe I can get this TB ported and polished. Not an L67, but hey.

I have a ported L36 sitting on the shelf. Not much market for it. But still good practice.

I've got drawers of parts now. I think I have 6 TPS

Like any other project, there will be unexpected problems, skinned knuckles and a few choice words tossed around.

A ported 36 works just as well. you will need an external maf I think if you port it not 100% sure. If you send it down here I can port it for yah. If not be a cool little dress up to paint the TB to give your engine bay a bit of color.
