    What part on the throttle plate are you referring to?

    Lol that was definitely an original plug!

    If you look into the throttle body and move the plate to wot there is a little restriction deal attached to the bottom of the plate. You can cut that off and it lets more air buy. Better throttle response is a result really.
    Here's a link to one:

    Did a few things over the weekend.

    Got my LED tails on. I wanted to tint them but i think i like them how they are. I wanna get clear front corners so they would match better.

    Then i took my center console out to check out the short throw shifter. Two of the bolts were loose that attach the arm so i fixed that and it shifts much tighter now.

    Had to put my Z28 wheels on for now because the other tires are shot. I wanna get some winter tires on the Xtreme wheels. But i might just wait. I do wanna sell these z28 wheels and get some nice summer set of wheels. Would love to get 17's with nice wide tires like 245's all around. BBS styled wheel with the multi spoked design.

    Then i put fresh fluid in the clutch reservoir because it was super dirty and my clutch just doesn't feel like it's grabbing right. So i'm just gonna keep cycling fluid through till it clears up nice.

    I ended up giving the Xtreme wheels a polished lip. Shined up pretty good and made them look like new. The clear coat was shot. Worked my way from 220, 320, 400 and then 2000 grit. Didn't have any 800 or 1500 so I had to jump up to that fine of a grit. Would like to hit them with the 800 and 1500 grit eventually but they came out really good. I'll upload pictures later on.
    Got some great condition used tires on them too. Snow tires for the rear and all seasons for the front. 225/60 size. They work great in all this snow we just got here

    Luckily all the painted area in the center of the wheels are all still in great condition. Just gotta be cleaned up.

    I would like to get some color on the wheels too. I was thinking the arrow design that is inlayed on the spokes of the wheel would look good in red. Just a small amount of color but it would be noticed.
