The throttle body regulates the amount of air that goes into the
engine. When someone modifies it, they grind out a bunch of metal from
the inside so that more air can pass through it. TAP claims an increase
in horsepower, but Shaumburg claimed only an increase in low-end
torque. Personally I'm more inclined to believe the Shaumburg story,
"Everyone says it's pretty hard to visualize. That's a lie. It's
impossible to visualize."
