What about the idle adjustment screw? Has it been fixed as well?

When i flipped my plate over doing that $0 thunder throttle mod i had to readjust my idle by cleaning out that idle stop screw and backing it out some.

Without adjusting that my idle was way to high and would pull in gear (atx)

this is not like a thunder throttle mod, the plate is never removed.

oh, ok.

Have you tried your mod along with the thunder throttle mod or can they both not work together?

I guess im not sure what you have done to these.

You got money!

For $40. i could pop mine out and tinker with it and maybe figure out something.

I really like the $0 thunder throttle mod. Ive been running mine for about a year now. It is touchy for anyone else who drive my car, i have to warn them before they get in because the throttle is very touchy.

I put the ported throttle body in yesterday and I love it. Works great and does exactly what I was looking for. Better throttle response without losing driveability for smooth launches. It also got rid of the slightly annoying whistle I was getting with my stock throttle body and Steeda short ram at low constant throttle levels, which was a nice surprise.

I agree its not bad, ill admit i had my doubts when i got it and first looked at it. It really does function alot better with the bump gone.

Good job on the mod, it works great and you can really hear the throat open up when you step into it.
