    Not sure on benefits of just the throttle body as I done a few jobs at the same time but car felt smoother and a nicer drive afterwards

    Thats one dirty TB you had there...

    Used to take mine off every 6 months but it only ever had a small amount of oil mist, not that bad to be fair... I took mine off tho and smoothed and polish all the inside, feels to pull a little easier now.
