TB install Monday, Do I need to be worried

Anything I need to be aware of when I do this Monday other than clean out the intake and reassemble with same O-ring.

Nope, pretty straight forward.

I'm BAAAAAAAACK....

2015 Billet Silver
past:
2012 300SRT
2009 Jeep SRT

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Yes, I'm on the 3 year plan...so 2018 better be a hellcat Jeep.

Nope, not now...deal on the 85mm TB was too good to pass on. I'm going to clean out manifold with long screw driver some rags and zip ties, a member on the forum did it this way and it seemed to get most of the excess oil. When I bought truck 2 months ago it never had a catchcan.

What 85 mm TB did you buy? I thought our stock TB were 80 mm but Meeper corrected me and said 85 mm. I went in the garage where I had a stock one sitting on the bench, low and behold my calipers said it was 84.5 mm.

How did your install go? Are you seeing a performance difference?
