Schaumburg stopped?  When?!

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,
but whatever.
