It has stopped working a long time ago and it's been unplugged, so I just went to delete it. That and simplicity in the bay.I'm curious why you did this. Simplicity? My Sentra and before that my Civic had no IACV and it was just a constant battle to get it to idle happily.
Probably. Truth be told I'll probably use a higher temp stuff. (When I originally applied it, I then realized the throttle wheel contacted the IM so I had to remove it anyways and it'll need to be scraped off.)You sure that RTF is a good idea?
I don't know of anyone doing it before is the main concern. You're talking about the area where stuff gets sucked in to the engine, so ingestion is always going to be a concern to me.What about the RTV is concerning to you? I ask because I haven't thought about it since it has since then moved down to near the bottom of the to-do list.
Absolutely. I share that worry too. IF I go with the RTV, I'll obviously pull back the butterfly valve and trim anything overhanging. Again, the only reason why is because the OEM gasket won't fit anymore. I'm sure there's a cut to fit type of gasket material one could buy online though.I don't know of anyone doing it before is the main concern.

I guess I mistyped, but yeah it'll be a triangle setup: two studs up top and a bolt passed through on the bottom.My only concern is that only using two studs that aren't on opposing sides of the throttle body will create a higher risk of the bottom seal splitting and letting air bypass. You might want to consider using that third stud. Triangles are always best
Thanks man, I have found that most of the pics in those threads are indeed dead. I think I found my plumbing solution though. I just need to figure out how I'm going to be blocking off a 3/4" hole on the driver's side...sigh...Here are some threads:
Sadly, pics are mostly dead as this topic was discussed almost a decade ago
Mine too lol! I feel like I spam the front page though. FWIW I also have a Yonaka aluminum rad and fan/shroud I've yet to install. That means the only part missing out of the coolant system is the heater barb for the spacer on the back of the head. Looking forward to knocking that system off the checklist.but some of my favorite posts are new parts...
