Any of you OBD II guys installed a larger throttle body? I'm just curious if the computer went ape-#### with the added diameter or not.

I think I'm goning to go with a 56 mm, I don't think the next step up (61 I think) isn't worth the extra $100. I plan on get atleast the upper intake ported, maybe the lower one to. I don't think I can switch the lower manifold myself, due to the lack of a good shop to use. So I'd have to get it done by a shop, which costs more money. How many hours would it take a good shop to swap them?

You shouldnt have a problem with the increased throttle body size as long as the TB you buy has spots for all the sensors (IAC, TPS etc).

On the 3100, is there any difference between the OBD I throttle body and the OBD II throttle body?

I believe all the sensors are the same. However, the plenum has a different EGR but you don't need to worry about that. Also, some throttle bodies have the coolant lines on the bottom and some do not. That's not a big issue though cause you can make a simple bypass hose and not have a problem.

Our 62mm TB for the 3100 does not affect the OBD 2 operation.  You may need to disconnect the battery for a night so the ECM can adjust to the extra air.  Every OBD 2 car I have worked on have been fine with the bigger TBs.

For the lower your looking at 6-8 hours. At least 400 bucks I'd say. Cheaper to do it yourself for around 60 bucks and clean and fix all the little things you come across too. A shop wouldn't do that or even gareente they connected things in the right order. They may for instance put on some part before connecting a harness, and then just pull and "stretch" the harness to connect and not put it back in the correct order. Even GM dealerships will do this. Not all but I've seen it happen.

I'm doing a HUGE write up right now on replacing the lower intake manifold gaskets and all related stuff done durring the process. I suggest you get a chiltons and take a look at my write up and see if you want to do it yourself. It's not that hard just takes time.
