Going to do this mod as soon as I do the TB cleaning. I'm also looking into a top side velocity stack, something to direct the flow. I'll take pics.

Use to see them on mutiple 1barrel carbs, they're used to improve scavenging. They're shaped like the end of a clarinet. The thing I'm thinking of is like a spacer that fits inside the cleaner and raises the top of the TB allowing more radius into the runneres.

just a brief add on to the throttle body project with hand tools for those of you who may still be doubtful about carving up a throttle body. Take a moment and go to any racing parts website, put in the year of truck you have, in my case, a 1996 ram with a 5.2. click on the intake tab and do a search on throttle bodies. they look almost identical to what we are doing, but a racing throttle body, with the same size butterflies and injectors runs $392 plus shipping. so all we are really doing is starting a fad of building our own racing throttle bodies for 3 hours work, some polish, and in some cases, lots of water and tweezers.. lol
