Scrubbing the lower intake manifold for hours and hours in your bath tub with a toothbrush and cans of TB cleaner works wonders on power restoration also. Get the TB cleaned up too and you might as well replace the LIM gaskets too so you dont have to worry about leaks there for years.

It was on here... I'm too lazy to search. It'* where you enlarge the mounting holes for the TPS Sensor, and then adjust the movement of the butterfly sensor, so you can get the 'magic' 4.35 volts at WOT.
