Sorry, can't do, because woomdawg had what he considered a valid point that was worth discussing. You on the other hand are the one that retorted with slandering comments like mindless, lazy & dumbass. That is not how we discuss topics around here, no name calling. I don't care if you cuss, just don't cuss at anyone, because it just derails the subject at hand & we end up talking more about each other than the OP. Since this is your thread (& I'm interested in it) I will cut you slack, but refrain from future mishaps.

Back on topic, I beileve that the mod will make a difference IMHO. We try to do everything we can to cool the air prior to going into the TB, using the likes of FMICs, intake manifold gaskets, CAIs, Ice boxes, etc etc. Why would we not want to do a simple free mod that should have an effect, unless said mod causes a harmful side effect. Since this is such a simple mod, I think that doing it in the spring & putting it back for winter may be a good idea for my climate considering how cold it has been this winter. Remember that most mods only yeild a few Hp anyways, it's the combination of a bunch of mods that makes a car fast & I will use every mod at my disposal to get as much out of this car as humanly possible.

I think someone needs to be a little thicker skinned. I really don't think any of his posts were insulting, rude, or anything like that. Your replies to his posts though........... If one person questioning gains off of this mod gets you that worked up you're going to have a rough forum life.

Back on track... Nice write up. I never got a dyno done on my old cars with the same mod, but as Tufast mentioned, every last bit of heat you can block is good IMO.

Sorry for my outburst if I am wrong I am man enough to admit it, all I was doing was adding my own insight. I apologize to the forum community. I still stick with my statement and dont really think you would see a gain from this,it's just my opinion nothing more.


I can't wait to get my R-spec !!!!

I agree with Tufast and CrookedH. He took it personally and then in turn made it personal. I don't think Tony's a bad guy or anything, he just took it wrong. It's all good.

So I started to think about this in a little more detail and i am positive I am right so let me explain. This coolant path is there to cool the throttle body , so engine coolant is around 200-225 thermostat opens at 180 and the coolant in the radiator is cooler than 180 so the an uncooled throttle body will have a temp of around 210-225 so hyundai cools it by running cool coolant from the radiator through the throttle body not coolant from the engine thus cooling the inlet air temp.The way I see it is you reroute this coolant in a loop as described in this post espicially in a hot climate aka miami you will loose HP. I am not trying to insult anyone at all just trying to educate.

You may be correct, I sure would like to take a bone stock car dyno it, do the mod & dyno again same day. I'm curious to see how it would turn out.

With the thermal spacer the two mods are a good deal.

I will have to disagree with you, the coolant going through the throttle body has nothing to do with cooling. It is used for below freezing temps it keeps the throttle butterfly warm so that it does not freeze over and become stuck. That's why people that live in Miami would see the best advantage from this mod because they could use it year round.

I agree. I did this mod to my Subaru STi, and I'll do this mod too when I got myself a Genesis
