Hi. I replaced the Throttle body to my 2000 trans am 5.7, for an aftermarket modified one, and now it is spending 1 1/2 more gas. Is that normal?
The car should be stronger and faster, too. I think something is wrong. It is
only 50 k miles on it.
No, the throttle body is only for air flow, I would get it live data scanned to see what systems might be out of specs.
You must realize the computer in the car controls the air/fuel mixture going into the cylinders. Throttle body, and the fuel delivery system must match the parameters of the OBDII computer. Mods like this may require a reprogramming of the OBDII depending on what you are looking for in the engines performance.
Total DISASTER... when someone doesn't know a thing about engines controls or tuning.
