Throttle Body Balencing Plug Removal


Active Member
Hi all,
On the intake i had the 8 nipples sitting up.

I`ve removed 4 of them, and drill and tapped then got bolts in these now (where the pcv pipework used to go).

I`m thinking of removing the larger ones and replacing these with bolts as the plastic caps could still potentially come loose an i even split one taking off my intake. It would also give me better access for removing the intake with the engine in situ in the future.

The question is:

How often have you guys had to balance your throttle bodies?
I`ve got an insert i can screw in when and if i need to balance them but i can`t see any need if they are ok at the moment?

Cheers in advance,
