    Default 2.2 direct throttle body chicane/ tube/ gasket

    Hi all.

    Ive just replaced my inlet manifold with sticky swirl valves for a sparkling clean one with nice and smooth flaps (you cant beat smooth flaps)

    I had a problem removing the throttle body off the old inlet manifold as one of the bolts had seized. I had to get a bit brutal with it to remove it. When I had removed it I think Ive dented the metal tube gasket that goes in before the throttle body, but the dent looks very symmetrical and I was wondering if it was supposed to be there or not?

    Can anyone shed any light on this. Ive put the car all back together and tested fine but I just have a slight feeling that the car is a little underpowered and this would tie up with a restriction in the throttle body tube. It might be just me though.

    Its number 15 in this picture.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Lee - cant help with the throttle body issue but how much did it cost you to replce the inlet manifold, and apart from your issues with the throttle body, how hard was it to do?

    Apologies again

    Do not worry had it off a couple of time, the metal tube dent is normal and your right (you cant beat smooth flaps)
