    its likely to increase airflow or rather make it smoother.. will be interesting to hear if you feel any difference..

    I didn't go quite that mad with mine, but I cleaned my TB today.

    Always tends to make idling smoother...

    Not sure what that pin-hole does (vacuum to somewhere I assume) but it was seriously oiled up!

    with the internal surfaces being polished they are less likely to coke up but the Z20NET throttle bodies don't seem to coke up anyway as a rule.. I figure you engine/ecu is just adjusting to slightly different charged airflow and will settle down very soon if it hasn't already..
