I'm currently opening the head for educational purposes (OK, it burns oil too)
I haven't opened this engine before - I was hoping I wouldn't have to either, but what the hell...
Since there are some XE/LET hands-on people here, I'll post any questions/observations and hope for the best
<please excuse the large images at this time>
If this is full throttle, I'm Santa Clause
It is normal practice in tuning to make sure that full throttle is just that, but this is ridiculous.
And no, there was no carpet under the pedal either!
For those who've looked inside their throttle bodies, is this normal?
This thing is very rough. The 'fuel atomisation' excuse won't stick, because it's just air at this stage
Has anyone ever bothered to polish this?
