Throttle body "blade" removal?

Throttle body "blade" removal?

Postby xrockonx [OP] » Jul 15 2013, 11:09pm

So I stumbled across this YouTube video:
http://youtu.be/okEDVwlEHvM
He is removing the small piece underneath the butterfly in the throttle body. Makes sence to me, helps airflow into the engine at partial throttle. And it seeks like that piece of metal is only there to help mileage.
Anyone done this mod before? Or can anyone vouch for its effectiveness?
I'm very curious, this seems like an easy way to free up some more power.
Yes? No?

i dont know about our engines but i know on my old RX7 that I did a basic flap remolval and smoothed out the intake port a slight bit and gained 7 HP on the dyno. So it may be worth trying out. 7hp for free maybe

It seems like it would work in theory. Any downsides that you've found yet? Also was it a general Hp boost through all rpms or more low end?

it is there to ease the launch for average drivers,, removing it will give better throttle response
