Does this mod work for us '08+ guys? I'm assuming this voids warranty.

yeah, it would probably be a warranty problem, but I doubt they would spot it!

I would need to see what the '08 TB looks like, if it's constructed the same way, then I would expect the gains to be similar.

Yep, '08 is fly-by-wire. I just checked out the workshop manual.

I'll see if I can edit the first post to include this info.

Is it Possible to use a dremel to remove the factory epoxy?

I assume so, but I would be weary about damaging threads and the head of the set screw. It's not that hard to do it by hand using the method described.

I did this mod today and car feels way better. With better response and the pedal was more smoother, confortable. I didn't have to use the dremel cuz I didn't wanna mess up. I recommend this to anyone who wants to mod the stock tb. If I could do it, you can too. It's not that hard to do, it just takes time and patience. Give it a try "Thug life". Lol
