Not as of yet Will and a big reason I havent taken the plunge. It a rather new TB and RSM racing hasnt been able to get any cores either. They said they would be happy to use me as a guinea pig some tme ago. I had some coversations with Morse Machining out in California and they stated they have never had a problem with a drive by wire GM TB, but not being able to reflash the PCM makes me wonder if it will respond to the flow, or screw things up trying to compensate. The new unrestricted MAF Custom 88 bought is suppose to communicate the new flow rates it causes to the stock N* PCM so I was thinking if I bored the TB AND got the Granetelli MAF that this might make a difference. I am in for doing something. The newness and novelty of the nitrous has worn off, it IS expensive, and I would like more regular street get up and go. I am talking to Boosty about his and waiting to see how his learns and responds.

Forget RSM. They're a joke. Poor service, shitty product, and a bunch of employees that don't know how to communicate with customers. A few of us have had issues with them in the past.

Find a core and send it to me.

So Bill,
Can I send you the TB off my 99? Would it be worth a spare 95 L67 MAF to you?

Bandit, read Don'* L36 TB improvement topic. I did that one too, and it made a big improvement. Perhaps more than Boost'*.

I cannot do a TB for everyone. My goal is to try one for each unique generation to prove the concept.

Bandit, did you know that you don't have your year in your sig? It makes it tough.

No, it'* not the same as an L36, but I do have an L27 ready to go. I'll be looking for a test car soon, but it will have to be someone who has a scantool and FSM. I need technical feedback on some sensor parameters from the testers.
