Throttlebody FI eliminator

Good news to those really interested in eliminating all the secondary throttle body linkage and servo crap off their 10's. Will allow for a smoother, less turbulent air intake into the throttle bodies and a little less weight. Same guy that makes the cheap exhaust servo eliminator.

You can read about it HERE at www.servobuddy.com

I'll be picking it up. I removed all the secondary linkage crap off my turbo car and before and after dyno testing showed substantial(over 10whp on a AWD car) without the plates and rods in. If I get an extra 2-3 whp on my bike it's worth the $80 for the FI light fix and for the less cluttered throttle body area. I know some won't care and will just leave only the plates removed but really that is only a partial fix.
Smoother airflow makes a big difference. Knife edging the throttle bodies and port matching exhaust flanges and header flanges all adds up to a snappier/smoother running engine and aside from seat of the pants smoothness on the throttle, before and after dyno runs show a smoother power curve. A couple of hours of work can get you a couple extra ponies.
Just thought I'd share, I know Garth mentioned something about it 2 weeks ago but I finally read the info on the secondary servo eliminator. $80 is very reasonable as for my car I had to have codes turned off in the ECU and the tune HAD to be remapped and it ain't free to do this. I will get my bike tuned after doing the all the knife edging and exhaust port matching and the secondary removal since I changed exhaust right before winter set in.. It will all add up to more powa after retune. It will give me something to do to the bike over the long winter downtime. Maybe one of those super small batteries too if it'll work with my nitrous electronics.
Anybody else gonna remove all the linkage and crap off their secondaries now that this is coming out?

So you're going to be a tester? Make sure you give a review on here so we know how it works out and what all the crap that can be removed weighs.

I'm not sure if I will get to test it, but am hoping I can. As far as the weight I can already get that since I have the servo, tps, and rod out already, just need to find a scale.

There is plenty of room for improvement to the stock throttle bodies.

I love the way my bike responded to the rod removal and eliminating the uneven edges.

Definately worth doing, especially with an FI code fix.

I'm not so sure that I would promote just anyone splitting them apart and doing the work themselves. It's not "hard", but you could potentially wind up with a mess depending on your mechanically ability.

I've got a "how to" type thread with pics. somewhere.
