Oh ok, I see the difference now.

Are you going to grind down the TB plate spindle? Or will just the TB yield enough gain for you?

that is the next phase. this time around was just cleaning and smoothing the tb, sc inlet, lim ports. Now that I have torn it down once, I know what to expect next time when I have more time. Line up a sc case core, etc.

the engine "feels quicker". snappier, lighter, with just these mods.

Makes complete sense to me! I'm sure just the removal of the carbon off the TB and surrounding areas would have yielded similar results (snappier, lighter etc) I know I noticed a difference when I cleaned my TB.

I'm still in aww of how clean it is and in such good shape for 260k.
