You completely missed the Fast and Furious reference.
And I think we had a little fun at your expense. I didn't actually intend that. So I'm sorry if you take any offense.

It's just once these boys get that syrup in 'em, they get all antsy in their pantsy.

Hey Farva, what's the name of that restaurant you like with all the goofy crap on the walls and the mozzarella sticks?

Just trying to clarify, when people quote upgrading their throttle body, to which one are you referring?
I will be doing similar maintenance and performance based mods to my 1.8 Zetec soon, and wanna make sure I head down the right path the FIRST time :P

I meant which upgraded throttle body are people referring to?
I've read that people have used/bought BBK ones, but I'm from Australia and haven't heard of that brand or type :s
Any tips for Aus upgrades?

There is no real reason to upgrade, and it really isn't an upgrade. It's simply a different part.
With a little modification the factory throttle body can work just as well.

AND the money you would have spent on shiny parts can go into parts that make power.
