Porting my Throttle Body

I'm gonna be porting my TB tomorrow or the next day because I'm cheap and like free mods. My question is this: Are there any paper gaskets that will need replacement? I know there is that reusable rubber gasket, but is that the only one? I'd like to get everything I need before I do it. Tonight I'm gonna buy some hose clamps and more epoxy...

Sorry I cant help answer your question--but good luck with the mod and let me know how it goes! Would be a nice alternative to shelling out $300 for the FC piece!

Thanks, I'll let you know how it goes. I'm not expecting a huge difference, but this should help. That damn bump needs to go before I get an intake. Plus, the SVT feels like its gonna fall on its face from idle...this should help.

If I can get my hands on a camera, I'll def take pics.

Got a camera in my possession. Barring no technical difficulties, I'll have some pics up when all is said and done.
