I note that GoWesty now offers a "brand new" billet aluminum throttle body. Has anyone had any experience with this yet?

Almost every post on this page is about that unit...



I don't think so. GoWesty used to sell their "rebuilt" throttle body (Part GW-TB-205). This is a new product (part GW-TB-DF-N)..

IO- SlimVest first posted about the new body 9/3 on page 1, I think all the posts since then are about it. The first production run sold out, back in stock, I plan on (Finally) ordering mine this weekend.

So I'm planning to purchase the GW throttle this winter and I wanted to run a question by the group. I have the early Vacuum setup. Can i just put the "T" in in the system to the regulator in place of the line to the throttle body? I'm a bit timid to clip wires for the TPS but that seems pretty straight forward. See diagram i've included. Thanks for any input.

Yes, you can plumb the retard signal line according to the 2nd diagram.
