I ported my tb not too long ago. It wasn't very difficult, just took some time and patience. I also used a hacksaw to cut the "airhorns" and most everything else off of the top and then rounded the resulting edges. I think that this mod is worth the effort and time. Here's the instructions that I used (there may be better ones out there...)

"2000dakota" makes me wonder if you have a '00 4.7 ? If so, I hope you're aware that was the only Dak with a 65 mm TB - others got a 68mm. I went with a ported 68mm for my '00. If you want to go that route you'll wnat one from a close year ('01 or maybe '02 ?) as they changed the TPS or IAC connection at some point.

Why p+p a throttle body when the air must pass thru passages that are rough and have near sharp corners?

He wasn't questioning if you owned a Dakota he was questioning if you had a 4.7 engine in your Dakota. You never stated in your first post if you did. That's why he asked.

So you think I remember the username and vehicle of every poster I help with info here ? Anthony is correct - if I knew you had the 4.7, I wouldn't have asked.

2000dakota, not that Kowalski needs defending, i'm going to toss in my $.02 anyway...

<big><bold> STFU! </bold></big>

for many years Kowalski has helped countless people with knowledgable answers. so cut him some slack just because he doesn't recall your tag and the motor you're running.

How in the h$ll is he supposed to know you have a 4.7? Could have a 5.9 or 3.9 and I'll bet his crystal ball would have told him that too.

He said he wondered if you have a 4.7 "AND IF SO" then he gave you pertinent and valuable info ABOUT THE 2000 4.7L.

Damn kids today can't comprehend the english language - sheesh :)
