1. under the t/b there are 2 rubber hoses that connect to them.
2. remove the two hoses
3. buy a brass hose coupler and mate the two together.
4. cap the two end off that you pulled the hoses off of.
5. your done

I was checking that out this weekend when I was cleaning my TB. VERY simple to do. A warm TB is suppose to help keep it clean, but judging by the gunk in mine, it ain't workin'. :D

I'll be bypassing mine when I get back from LA.

you shouldnt have any problems at all. how many decades have engines not had that hot water running through the intake like that??? i think it started on gmfs' in 99.........

the only logical reason i see is to warm up faster, which resulted in better fuel efficientcy.

Does this really offer any kind of performance increase or is it all in the drivers head?
The reasoning here I think goes something like, cooler TB, the air going into it doesn't heat up as much.
Cold air=Denser air=more power
I doubt it adds any power though

air is such a poor conductor of heat. i have a lot of doubt that a hot TB would be able to heat the air that rushes past it as fast as it does. i doubt it would raise the air's temp at all.....
