Alright, I think we need something to link people to when they ask the questions about how to do the TB Coolant Bypass mod and that damn Intake Air Hose thing to the crank case. Or whatever it is.

Throttle Body Coolant Bypass

What you'll need:
(1x) 3/8ths Hose union by Quick Disconnect
(2x) 3/8ths hose clamps

Hose unions are made by Quick Disconnect and are part number 800-011



Tools:
Needle Nose Pliers
An awesome screwdriver!
Some badass muscles of doom (maybe)

And then follow these steps:



So easy! It really helps a lot as the TB is a decent sized chunk of metal. Not having it heat up to a billion degrees not only helps underhood temperatures (errr, right?) but it'll make sure the TB isn't heating the air up before entering the engine and potentially robbing you of some power. What I like about it even more than that, however, is the fact that it won't bleed heat into/onto the intake pipe. Big difference on the temperature of the intake piping after being run hard.


Intake Air Hose/Crank Case Thingie

What you'll need:
(1x) 3/8ths Hose union by Quick Disconnect
(2x) 3/8ths Hose clamps
(2x) 5/8ths Hose Clamps
(3ft) 3/8ths Hose
(1ft) 5/8ths Hose

Tools:
An awesome screwdriver!
Your sexy self!

And then follow these steps:



The oem black/light blue plastic piece on the crank case is a bitch. Just treat it like one and break it. Show how we 6 clubbers roll, ya know? Anyways, 1ft of 5/8ths is plenty, and 3ft has proven to be plenty as well, but no one is stopping you from purchasing more than that. I'd suggest it, actually, simply because you'll always need some new hose for a new project somewhere down the line. The quick disconnect hose unions come two to a pack and cost about $7 from what I can remember.

So basically, if you're getting an intake, you're probably going to have to do this crank case thingie but while you're at it, just go ahead and do the TB Coolant Bypass mod as well. It's well worth it, in my opinion.

Now stop pm-ing me!!! ;D

I imagine the intake air hose is the thingy with the blue clips, right? I'm guessing that was simply for convenience, because when i installed the SRI, i just used my manliness to rip that shit out, but if this is easier, DO IT, pullin that shit out was a bitch and a half

Yup, rip it out with the manliness that our ancestors would have.[/b]
Yeah, no hands, real men only use either pecs or teeth to do EVERYTHING! Hands are for pussies :irate:

Can you do the tb coolant bypass mod to the V6 cars?? I searched on the 3.0 forum and didn't really find a solid answer.[/b]
Yup, it's pretty much the same. The TB coolant hose connections are just in a slightly different position.

Business: Your pics are worth way more that 1000 words. :thumbup:

right on, i was just doing some research, until I recieve the optimized TB from you Twowheelin. I was going "to kill two birds with one stone" kinda deal.

Awong124: what do you mean I don't need extra parts?? I don't need to buy a hose connector and clamps??
