Coolant through TB needed?
I have a pesky coolant leak at the nipple in the intake that routes coolant through the throttle body. Thinking about just removing the nipples and putting in plugs. What is the purpose of the coolant going through the throttle body? Cool the air, cool the water, heat up the air? And is it needed? Car will be driven when cold(freezing) at least for the remainder of this winter. Hopefully by next year I won' have to.
On a side note, that leak and a brake line that just blew when I was test driving for TV adjustment, should be all thats left for it to be road worthy. Tomorrow I place an order for shocks, struts, and springs. Going with ford racing B springs. 7/8" drop in front and 1/2" in rear because the roads around here aren't great, and it is a driver. And while I have a used exhaust system on it (stock headers, bbk H-Pipe, stock mufflers and T-pipes) I will be ordering new exhaust next week or the week after (bbk headers, off road H and flowmaster cat back).
