    is this a bad time to say that my engine has too much oil and wont burn any causing my oil temps to over around the 210 mark at all times even at idle lol.....

    we over filled a tad then on top added a liquimoly additive similar to that lucas stuff that just makes the oil more oily?? anyways im going to drain some soon. probably half a quart maybe a quart

    What prompted this replacement with the stock TB?

    My car drives like crap with the AC on. The revs drop way too quickly, making it very difficult to rev match on the upshift. I was hoping the throttle body was to blame (it was a long shot)

    The main reason I swapped wasn't that, however. My tech friend suggested I swap it to see if it could be causing a mixture prep code I'm getting. I replaced the MAF in 2014 but I have a feeling it needs to be done again. Since I already have the throttle body, it was an easy test.

    We'll see if the codes come back, which I expect to happen.

    I would be interested in your findings.

    I have significant increase in noise/vibration when I turn on the AC. There is also a noticeable lack of power as well. Haven't gotten around to cleaning out the TB though...

    What are the codes you are getting? I'm getting mixture prep codes too. I was thinking it's the SC tune but maybe not...
