You are familiar with the 4.7 idle and stumbling probs....dealers tell me the idle is unfixxable because of the emission change it would cause....has not ben aproved......

would a ported 70mm TB and a pcm reset change this idle prob?

I have heard of problems with stalling on occasion but none of stumbling. My truck when I pull to a light will sometimes go to a very low idle then come back up then settle. I am not sure if there is a flash or anything at the moment. I will try to look when I am at work.

I have been afraid to flash mine since there is now a ping flash for the 4.7 out and I don't want to kill my timing. My gas gauge is a little wacked as well it says dead empty but I still have five gallons left.

The F&B TB is what you are talking about? It has idle issues as well. One thing for the stumble might be to try is adjusting the TPS to about .75 volts and check your throttle body it may be dirty as well.

DC cleaned my TB as well as a new program for the computer....but the idle is still 500 and drops to 300-500-600-300-500 etc etc.......it has not stalled from when i got it back...i just want a steady 600 idle....DC said it would violate emmision standards and it wasnt aproved for fixxing yet......

as far as a TB i just wanted to upgrade from a 68 to a 70 to go along with my intake and cat-back/high flow cat im getting

The 70 mmTB will hurt your Idle!!! There is only one fix for your problem... PCM UPGRADE!!!

For your 2001 you must go to ASE and have them "chip" it. It costs around $400 but you also get much improved performance as well.

The 70 and 72 TB are plagued with idle problems.

When your guage shows empty you SHOULD have about 5 gallons left.

Demand that they dont. I had my PCM domne by Mike LEach. They said if it gets over written they will reflash for nothing.
