Sweet, that was more the response I was after. I've owned cars where the TB's are quite good and just need a clean.
Is there a guide on here for modifying your factory TB to improve it?
I'm quite handy with a Dremel and fine motor skills, I just don't wanna cock anything up.

I disagree... With enough done I think an extra 5-10 hp can come out of there. However I bet iminhell can prove me wrong XD

I need all of those how-to's if I'm gonna stand a chance in Race Warz :P

My experience with intakes in general, is the performance gains above stock are very low. Combined with full exhaust, cam gears and a refund though and it will make a noticeable difference :)

Just Save up and buy all the Parts for a SVT header conversion and a 2.25'' or bigger exhaust. Then build MOD's on top of that. It is the only way to make good power unless going Turbo. Take a look at your ZX3 header, it looks like it was designed to constrict airflow. I can only believe ford did it for Fuel Econ.

I replaced my Bosch premium 8 mm wires with obx 10.3 mm wires It has a much quicker response now I wouldn't say acceleration increase but the throttle response is noticeably quicker since I put them on well worth the $50

Porting the stock TB will not add any performance at all
