I saw some mentioning of throttle body spacers in the beginning of this thread....
Just an FYI the throttlebody spacer is foe a TBI injection engine and does absolutely nothing on these engines due to the multiport injection large "kegger" intake with a large chamber and long runners inside for torque... there would be no swirling effect since there are too many chambers and obstacles in the intake...(If you do have the manifold apart breaking away the divider in the center on older 97 and older intakes does help though.)
And I realize this willl cause the throttlebody to be a bit louder but the iac can cause a very loud swooshing vacum leaking sound if its not functioning correctly (the plunger looking thing on the backside of the TB.) keep that in mind and remove it before grinding at the shavings can go inside the hole and bind it up....
