Clean your Throttle Body

Did mine, it's like a new car. Smooth idle, no more surging will coasting and stalling, and it shifts smoother, Im assuming because it doesn't stall or surge between shifts

Well crap. I'm at 90xxx as of now and I bet mine would make a killer difference. Come to think of it, it does feel like it gets "stuck for a second" every now and then. Maybe a good cleaning will do the trick. What should I use to clean it?

clean your TB, MAF, and IAC every 4 oil changes and you'll always have that nice riding feeling.

I like CRC TB cleaner. Always worked well for me.

Ah not SUPER dirty but had some black gunk behind the blades. It almost seems like if they weren't so hard to push out, almost instant throttle response and rev would be achieved? Idk just my thought I guess.
