Default Throttle Body...

Hey guys I've been toying with the idea to port my throttle body as money is a little tight right now. I work in a machine shop and was curious if I could just bore the throttle body out to the size of an after market one...

thanks!!

Like you said, there is alot more to porting a throttle body then just a straight bore. A tapered design will make more power and give better throttle response, and you also have to be careful not to remove much material at the blade to prevent from throwing any check engine lights.
