Throttle Body Rewire
 
would it be possible to rewire the DBW harness so the throttle body will respond faster. rewire in much of the same way you would a fuel pump to supply more fuel pressure.

i ask because i have read about the tb ground mod in which you run a ground wire from the tb to the battery to "clean the signal and create a stronger ground"

that seem fine in all, but the 3.7 has a plastic tb and will not support a ground mod like that.

ive thought about a way around that. one way is a rewire, the other is to splice a ground into the ground on the ETC harness and run that to the batt. problem i see with that is may interfere with what the NGC PCM reads as that ground gose back to the pcm. this is why i thought bout a tb rewire.

any advice or tips is much appreciated...

if this works, we may not need to spend 300$ on a sprint booster for improved throttle response....

this is the write up on a DSM website on th fb rewire...(im also working on a 2g talon and did this rewire myself)

click on fuel, scroll down till u see 2G fwd rewire

really guys, any thoughts, i mean i am using MY jeep as the guinea pig and if it works thats 300 dollars saved

Pretty sure the 3.7 TB has metal bolt sleeves, so yes it will support grounding.

The key is to skew the throttle position voltsge.

Skew?

how tho, even with metal sleaves it still bolts to a all plastic manifold, besides the metal anchors in the manifold

IF that is true then it would make sense as to why I have no noticed a difference on the 3.7L. I have not really investigated it though.

See now this thread is intresting, i have been doing research on this and im figureing out a way to rewire this thing to boost the voltage on it(for a faster response) my ony issue is the wires i need to "mess with" run back to the ecu and i am unsure the affect it will have on it

Have you done the TB ground mod? I have tried a couple different ground points. This seems interesting though but I wouldn't know the first thing about rewiring DBW.

I looked into grounding my throttle body as well but found the plastic TB on my 2008 3.7 WK- I'm also curious to what route to take to make a TBG mod possible.

im thinking the simple route would be to splice a ground wire into the DBW harness ground and run it to the batt.

Might not be a bad solution-keep us posted if you give it a try
