Hello Hondata,

Have you see some problem (or gains) with the throttle water bypass mod?

This is a good modification, especially coupled with the intake manifold gasket.

Hondata. have you ever heard of a throttle plate freezing from removing the throttle body coolant lines. As you know I live in MA and it gets pretty cold up here but I know that is killing my power production with my setup. That 200* coolant running through the throttle body is killing me. Lol..Even though the IM has coolant running through it.

Freezing would be a possibility because of the pressure drop across the throttle plate. Perhaps try putting a ball valve in the feed hose so that you can shut the water off in summer.
