throttle body bypass

  1. Part Reviews/Opinions
    It's pretty remarkable what an ECU tune can do. I've installed a cold air intake, gutted all 3 cats, installed a high-performance muffler, throttle body bypass, etc, etc. I've probably spent 30 hours crawling around under the car, replacing this, adjusting that...and then Stas (Stayer) comes...

    Warning: Do NOT do this mod. My Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor blew and my car went into limp mode at extremely high temps. and would not start. I almost had to have it towed but luckily there was an auto store nearby where I was able to plant the car under a tree. I had to pay $170 for a...

    Hey guys, I have a 2009 Eclipse GS that I have kept stock for the 5 years that I have owned it with intention to eventually trade it off. I only have around 41k miles on it so far. Ive come to the conclusion that I probably wont be trading it any time soon so I am tempted to start modding it...

    For the TB Bypass, everyone seems to be taking off the TB then reconnecting the two hoses with the barb, but do you have to take off the TB? I think I can just fit my hands under there and take off the hoses and reconnect them under the intake. Is that fine? or is there a reason for taking off...

    If anyone could take the time to write me a list of simple diy home mods? like the throttle body bypass and whatnot, i have automotive experience so not much is limited.

    since this is such a simple mod why not?? but my question is.. i know the reason its there is to prevent freezing in cold temps.. i live in wv and we get some pretty harsh weather in the winter, is it safe to do this despite our below freezing temps in the winter??? :confused:

    Okay so I know everyone says if you mess this up, you’re an idiot. So I’ll take the hits for some knowledge gain. Basically I did the TB bypass according to Chaos’s TB Bypass write-up. Utilizing the 5/16 ID Barbed Coupler (which I couldn’t find anywhere, so I connected two one-way barbed ends...

    So I saw the DIY thread of how to bypass the throttle body, what exactly will this do for your car? Better throttle response? HP? Torque? Any help is much appreciated :)

    What you will need 1. Allow 1Hr of time (but if takes you that long perhaps you shouldnt be working on your own car) 2. a pair of snips,scissors,boxcutter,axe,lightsaber or silimar to cut the tubeing 3.1 Pair of slip joint or needle nose pliers 4.1 5/16 I.D. barbed hose coupler 5.Ratchet Set...
