    Default Throttle Body

    Well, I will be changing out my 2.5 throttle body for a 4.0 tommorrow if anyone on Bolling is interested.

    Easy job, shouldn't take you too long.
    Don't over torque the 4 bolts that hold it down... you can warp the mounting face of the throttle body. It'll be distinguishable by a nice whistle. Don't ask me how I know

    ok then why does mine whistle but at the air filter? It does it when I first start it and at lower RPMS when wheeling and crawling. Granted I have a 62mm spacer and throttle body with and airaid intake. I always thought it was the fact that a few of the fins in my filter are bent.

    I've heard that the spacer and larger throttle bodies tend to make a light whistling sound. Do you have the stock air box or an aftermarket cold air type intake? The cai's also tend to make a slight whistling sound.
    If you feel there's a leak, start the jeep up, take a can of throttle body/carb cleaner and spray it around different connections starting at the intake and making your way down to the intake manifold. If there's a leak, the cleaner will get sucked in and your rpms will jump.

    yea I kind of thought my whistle was the combination of all three things and I dont think I have a leak but I will check just to be sure.
