Inlet flaps 03 2.3l duratec

I haven't removed my manifold yet, but do we not have replaceable flaps like our UK counterparts?

Is the 03 2.3l known for the swirl of death? Was not looking forward to paying 250+ for a new manifold if I can just replace the flaps/rod for like 70-100.

just replace the I/M and be done with it, clean your T/B at the same time and replace the PCV valve and PCV hose and thermostat when you have the I/M out of the car.

Alright. I've already replaced the thermostat a bit ago through the headlight removal. What is T/B?
