Re: Any Experience with Schaumburg Throttle Body upgrade on V6 ?

I've heard several good reviews of this mod from different listers--some
are more glowing than others, but all claim some kind of improvement in
low-end torque.  My guess is that this mod is best coupled with a K&N
panel and a modification to the air intake tube (at least on the 90). 
The exhaust system is actually pretty good, that would be lower down on
my list of important mods, especially considering how constrictive the
stock throttle body is.
