Default throttle body bypass kit?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/95-03...spagenameZWDVW

any body ever heard of this before or tried it before, i find it hard to belive that one kit would be able to fit any monte from 95-03.

thats a rip off, all it does is bypass the coolant flow from the throttle body, you can do the same yourself with about 50 cents worth of parts from the parts store. no noticable gains tho the concept is good cos u know that the hot coolant flowing through the throttle body has got to be heating up the air a bit

lol @ their dyno chart- if you read closely, not only did they do their retarded bypass, but also a ported TB. No wonder it picked up 4 hp.

Basically the guy just is throwing down some fact and making it sound logical to sell a product.

A TB spacer would be better but those have proven to be next to useless as well.

Why does Chevy circulate the coolant through the Throttle Body in the first place? Is is supposed to warmm the air or keep the Throttle Body from freezing up? I don't get it?

And this guy sells a piece of hose for 100% Profit ... and shows a Dyno run to seal the deal?

I smell a rat!

more of chevies dumb crap, make the air that goes into the engine warmer therefore less air going in which uses less gas which causes less hp but more mpg
