Default Installing VMAX Ported Throttle Body on LFX Engine

One of the simplest mods you can do to this engine. The stock TB has a lot of valleys and bumps that ruin the flow of air. Just getting that all smoothed out has been dyno proven to really add throttle response and an easy 7-10 RWHP.

Here's a comparison of the 2. Hard to see the changes, but you can really FEEL it with your finger. Stock is on the right.



Step 1, Unwrap the TB

Step 2, Remove the intake tube from the TB

Step 3, Disconnect the only connector going to your stock TB, and then remove the 4 10MM bolts holding it on.



Then just put the new TB in its place, and bolt back on.



Plug it back in, connect your intake tube, and you are good to go!

Seriously! I was surprised that the electronic TB was this simple. I was afraid to think how overly complicated it could have been.

You'd hope they would get simpler with their designs to cut cost. But this is GM we are talking about.
