Edit: Found out it is a shaner ported stock throttle body.

Bought this w/ a LS6 intake off another member. I already have a P/P TB so I won't be needing this one.

Looks to be polished, bump stop mod, idle hole drilled bigger, idle set screw adjusted open a little, blade screws cut down, epoxy filled then removed.

Not sure what it is worth or if it is even worth it! To be perfectly honest, it is not the best looking TB I have seen. I am sure some one could do wonders with this! Comes with every thing in the pictures.

Here is a quote from the seller I bought it off of about the TB
" It is a shaner throttle body. I removed the epoxy and drilled the hole a little bigger after installing the ls6 intake. I was trying to get the idle right (which it did for me). So.. It did look great before I got in there with a grinder. That epoxy is tough. "

Started at $70 - Shipped! OBO
EDIT: $50 Shipped

Edit: Since the hole is drilled bigger and the set screw is adjusted, tuning and blade adjustment is problaby going to be a must. Hole is usally drilled when going with a bigger cam so it can idle!

I've been wanting to do mine, bought all the dremal parts over a year ago, I thought about buying a stocker to play with. But thats a good deal seeing how the scrap yard wants 100 for a stock TB. If I had the funds I'd jump on it out of curiosity.

Don't quote me on this, but better throttle response, and maybe 10hp. Others can chime in.
