Throttle body bypass QUESTION

Absolutely,do it. They're all the same. After draining some coolant,remove the elbow from the steam pipe to the throttle body. Disconnect the line to the throttle body from the coolant reservoir,at the throttle body. Connect the line to the steam pipe,after trimming for length. It''s that easy.

You got it backwards... the throttle body set up as it is (stock) keeps it from freezing up. You will never have a chance for it to freeze in GA so, yes, DO IT!
I live in Pittsburgh and never worried about it and as someone else said... I've never heard of someone icing up their tb.

If anything, bypassing the TB will PREVENT the TB from icing up.
(removing the coolant from it, hints, no liquid to freeze)

Pretty sure it was just for emissions (warm the air up, blah blah blah)

You should definitely do the TB bypass. I did it to my 95 Z28, 96 Impala and 04 Denali XL. Never had any problems and the temp dips into the mid 30's during the winter.

Someone on this forum posted a nice diagram on how to do the TB Bypass. Here's the link: Throttlebody Bypass?

I think the hp gain is 5-6hp average. Here is a link to a dyno before/after comparison chart from a 96 'Bird. http://www.ws6.com/mod-8.htm
