That's the talk going around the fourms. A small few see merit in the concept saying when your cruising down the hwy your only using 1/4 throttle other see it as a seat of the pants feel for the quick throttle response on low end opening the throttle less to archive the same speed. All I can tell you is I watch it being done they did a relearn on the computer customer went out and drove it came back real happy! What does that mean I don't really know but I was give one for test and will post what I fine going to do some dyno runs mpg test before and after if it look good on a personal level. I also think that a change like this will need tuning work also to get the best results.

I'm skeptical but I have an open mind. Please keep on with your experiment. I am hoping that you are on to something. Good luck.

As I start collecting data one thing one has to rememeber is the condition of the car or truck your working on. The testing equipment in that test. I'm using two scanners a Auto X-Ray EZLink and a newer Actron CP9185 both do obd1-2. The newer scanner when hook up and scanning runs the Idle up an extra 100-200 rpm's I down load new updated software which helped so now it only idling 100rpm higher. All the data looks the same from both scanners at the same rpm's so I will keep using it to print my data out.
First up we did a idle test with the two scanners recording a run cycle about 20seconds long at normal operating temp of 195. A driving test 45 mph and a freeway test at 65 mph. With this data we know the truck is running normal show no codes. On to smog testing next!

As I have been doing this testing I'm finding other company are doing something a long the same lines in throttle body spacers. Which is a little different but more examples that the process of grooving is said to work. Watch the video!

You should do a bit of research on fluid dynamics, then maybe let this thread die...
