detailed my throttle body

everyone knows a clean TB means more power and better idle so....

i cleaned the inside with carb spray cleaner and then polished up everything before sending it to get ported. You can also remove the IAC valve on the side since its held on with screws. Spray alot of cleaner in there until all the carbon is gone. this will result in a more stable warmup idle. Don't forget a new gasket from honda before you put it back. Also a new gasket between the throttle body and intake manifold.

i used carb cleaner to actually clean out the carbon around and under the throttle plate. You can spray some in the IAC valve but you need to take it off the tb first. Then mothers polish to make it shiny. I sent it in to be ported so the inside will be shiny anyway.
