Default FZJ-80 Landtank Throttle Body

I know several of you have the modified Landtank Throttle Bodies. Can I get some comments on the product, ease of installation and experience with the new body from any of you? Thanks, T

The fit and finish of the aluminum body is nice. The hardest part of the install is releasing the pins from the stock wiring plug to rearrange them. Its not a big deal but you don't want to break the little retaining clips that hold the plug together. As for the performance when installed, the change is subtle but noticeable. I used to able to be cruising on the highway and move the acceleratot pedal a bit with no noticeable change in speed. Now I can feel small changes from the throttle in the engine. I just feels more responsive. I'd definitely rec' the mod.

Installs in under an hour. Noticeable increase in power. Highly recommended.

x2 - I watched him install it

I plan to finally install the one of the 's 80 while I fart around with figuring out why her 80 is having starting "issues"
