Throttle body. The funny thingy with the throttle plate, MAF and TPS sensors and throttle/cruise cables going to it

Attached to your upper intake and my Supercharger.

Ok thanks.

Know what the throttle body is, just didn't connect TB and throttle body together. DUH!

I actually did this in my car. Just hose clamped a cone right onto the TB and immediately noticed a decrease in performance. The boost gauge didn't seem like it went as high and my top end was completely shot. Just to make sure I left it like that for a while. It looked good but its not worth the cost in performance. Maybe my car was just freakish. I was thinking that sitting right above the exhaust manifold and sitting at a redlight sucking up that hot air was causing the pcm to retard the timing. Hot air = bad

getting a cone filter that fits the size of the trottle body inlet and just put the filter on it. leaving the tubing and crap off it
I've seen this done on a 1959 Corvette, but that'* a different story all together. Like everyone said, you'll be sucking in hot air.

Not only hot, but with no time to turn 'straight' (laminar) your performance and efficiency will suffer. Remember, you're injected, not carb'd.
