Has he already done the work for you and/or did you send one to him? If not then maybe you should cancel your order and jump in the group buy with HRT so we can get the numbers we need. If he's revamp'n his shop he may welcome the relief as well... Just a selfish suggestion.

I did send an inquiry email this morning. I'd like to help y'all (and myself) get a discount!

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I've decided to start making throttle body grounds to go with all electronic throttle as an option they will be 8 gauge wire and be soldered onto quick release ends to snap onto throttle body and negative ground cost is $10 just to throw it out there

Wont work in the o8 to 10 (11 for the liberty) 3/4.7 DBW tb's as they are plastic. This will work and has been proven in the metal hemi tb's tho. So it should work in the o5 to o7 3/4.7 as well.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

More throttle response as well as crisper throttle I believe, Jeff will chime in

Not necessarily "more" throttle response per say. On tbs with a separate tps it helps smoothen the tps signal back to the ecu by means of better grounding. What you get is a better feel when you apply throttle. Remember you guys are running a throttle cable so the only true way to boost response it a bigger tb bore and to take any slack from the throttle cable.

If anything this mod helps in idle quality and the transition off idle quality.

Id wait till after the new fastman comes in before tightening the cable. Thus will make install a little easier to do and then tighten it
