alright, so i wanna port my throttle body this saturday or something, and ive been reading the forums and some ppl have a rough idle after porting/replacing a throttle body and only a new tune will fix that, i dont want to tune it (too broke).. so should i still go for it?
+ who has done it - any pics or suggestions would be appreciated

yup i know.. i read it and it didnt say anything about the gasket so i was wondering if you need one + it says fine sandpaper: is like 2000 i used when i was niteshading or like 500-600 should do the job?

I can't remember who's picture this is. But I saved it to help me do mine.

Just make sure you don't touch anything other than above the butterfly. If you can see light through it than your going to have a bad idle. Atleast mine you couldn't see through.

make sure you use the epoxy on the back side of the tb where you gona be sanding it.
so you wont weaken the tb.

its on the outside of the tb. its there just in case you sand too much of the inside of the tb.
