wanting to do this but do you have any bigger/zoomed in pictures of the steps. Hard for me to tell where you cut and didn't. I'd really appreciate it. Thank you

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....

Just got done doing this mod. I gotta say I was a little skeptical at first. I mean, I figured those walls were there for a reason and I think the reason being is to cut down on engine noise. This mod definitely works. I noticed am immediate difference. I got done in my garage and put it in reverse. It threw me forward in my seat! Definitely a faster throttle response. It felt like a new engine! Only thing is I'm hoping it improves gas mileage. We'll see after driving for awhile.

I have read alot about this issue and from what I have learned the idle issue after all is said and done is most likly your MAP sensor do your self a favor if doing this mod and remove all the sensors before you start

Yea man thats an old school trick, works great like a Holly dominator carb.
you can also bore it out a little and get more air flow/CFM's per min.
I have been doing it for years on all my little projects even bored & polished my chainsaw when I rebuilt it.
If you take off the intake to you can bore, polish & port match them so the edge's wher they meet together dont couse air terbulance and disruped the air flow giving you a beter fule optimization/ mist) & stronger torqe curve,Gets rid of that slight surgy feel when you are dead on it. Pile up some tricks like that & you will feel more diferance than a chip n exhaust any day.
Next try taking out the thermostat n cut a little off the spring about 3/8 or untill it runs around 160 to 175 n feel that torqe with the polish job on the air intake ! feels like a set of heads.
Like the old fox body 5.0 mustangs, The cooler it runs the more you can advance the timing.

I did the same thing to my throttle plat, and it did work. however the dremmel was slow, I used a hack saw instead, filed , then used the dremmel to polished it with Mothers. I`ve seen the high preformanec plate from Holley about the same thing around $324.00!!!!
