Question 2001 Saturn Sc2 Performance Throttle Body

Tell me what you guys think...I know that some of you are so good you can tell just by looking at it if it's really a "Performance" throttle body! I know the throttle plate isn't pictured, but are there any questions I should ask the seller before bidding?

Let me know if the link doesn't work...

Thanks for any input!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Ive never even heard of that company, and thats not that great of a deal. Youd be better off buying one from SPS, or even better sending in a throttle body to A&R and having them do it for you. 60 bucks, and from what I understand work better than a big bore.

It doesn't look tapered; it looks like its bored straight through.

Tapered is a better setup for horsepower and torque.

Grab a dremel and your throttle body...

Go hide with them for an hour or so...

You should return with a ported TB.

I have also heard that with modification a Geo Prizm's 60mm TB will fit. I will find out soon and let you all know.

Yup.

The only thing that doesnt bolt up from what I hear is the throttle cable...

But thats an easy fix!

Im going to the junkyard Today or tommorow to find one and make it fit. I might even mass modify them...

definitely keep us posted! $.99 & $10 s/h sounded good, but the bids may go higher (plus there's a reserve)...thanks for the info, though...i was just wondering if I should even bid on the thing...
