So caution on this mod ....

If removing the walls, take down the ones near the MAP sensor side and leave the walls up on the IAC side.

Due to some unknown reason, taking the walls down on some of these TBs will cause the engine to pulse up and down at idle. This isn't very favorable considering the start up and the 02 sensors that have to deal with the pulsing idle. Not sure if this causes wear or shorter life for the O2 sensors.

I've done the mod on my 2001. Only to the Map sensor side and have notice exactly what the original poster stated. Better throttle response, the vehicle wants to move rather than become awaken to move, the gas peddle requires less of a stomping to get going, just giving a little gas allows the vehicle to move rather than a stomp (saves fuel).
