For those of you adding a lot of bolt-ons, forced induction, and tuning. We also have an 80mm (84mm effective after porting) that comes with an Adapter Kit to fit and smoothly transition your V6 manifold.
Hey Mike, quick question on 8 the hour reset procedure. Does it need to be as close to that time as possible, or can it be say 4 hours, or 12 hours, etc?

No, I think 4 hrs is fine too. There's a lot of argument about how long it actually takes to clear, I have seen from 20min to overnight. We went with 8 hrs (overnight) to be on the safe side. But I think it is a bit of an overkill.

It is a weird reset time, when I first got my car I had to have it unplugged overnight to reset my coolant/outdoor temp/reindex windows. Now I can literally unplug and immediately replug to have those things happen.

I’m still gonna do at least the 4 hours but probably overnight for 8

Agreed! Real life independent reviews are important, so we can all learn. Mine was supposed to here today, but tracking says that it has been delayed, but is still moving in transit. Hopefully it will be here tomorrow.

Just installed mine tonight. I'm only 30 miles into the break in procedure, so I'm being very gentle at the moment. No codes, idle issues, etc. It's acting 100% the same as the stock TB. Even with light driving I can definitely feel a difference just like Soler has described. I'll obviously know more as I drive it more aggressively, but even now I'm very impressed.

I just got around to installing it, I'm having an issue with removing the sensor form my original TB. Did yours look like this? The instructions showed a red clip that I've seen on other connectors but this gray clip I haven't seen and it isn't budging at all. Wondering if I should go with my idea of using a minus screwdriver and brute-forcing it but kinda scared if I **** up that connector.

Edit: first drive and no issues, acts just like the old one. I didn’t do any hard pills but did get up to 4.5k RPM and I think the biggest thing I noticed was it feels like it has more pull at the higher RPMs. After a few days I’ll try a full on pedal to the metal and see

Yes mine has the grey clip just like yours. I didn't have any problem with it. It took a little bit of muscle, but nothing crazy. I believe Soler sells these pieces. Might wanna give them a call. So do you notice the difference right off idle? I definitely do

I broke mines too when I was installing the overkill combo. I couldn't figure it out as well

Iím giving it a few days, Iím not so sure I feel a difference and the higher RPMís I thought I donít know if thatís the case. Iím gonna keep it for the week then if I donít see a change Iím gonna switch back to my original and after a week see if I notice the change. Hopefully Iím just not realizing a change, if not then I think maybe Iíll look into their 80/84eff TB

Wow I'm really surprised you don't feel a difference already. It definitely shouldn't be like that. If you don't feel a change, then switching to the larger TB won't make any difference. There must be something else going on
