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

There is a rumor around (maybe heard on the q-list?) that somone(s) with the
mod from Schaumberg had trouble, where the piece failed in the open
position, giving them full-on throttle. Not sure if it is true, though. I
think TAP has their own as well.
