Hi guys - my V threw up a code for Throttle Body error this morning . It was a single occurence so my mechanic cleared it and said to keep my fingers crossed. Light came on again before I got to work. Mechanic told me that a new throttle body would $1K. Anyone have any info on throttle bodies for the V - if I have to put in a new one I want (if any) to see what other options I have cost wise and performance wise.

Re: 05 Throttle Body Code / Engine Light
He told you a throttle body would cost you a grand?!?!?!? If that's not robbery I don't know what it is. You can pick those 78mm DBW TB up off eBay all the time. In fact there are more than 4 that are less than 200 right now.
Update - I had a great Vette repair referral and even he only quoted me $300 on parts and labor... Called my local Caddy dealership they actually told me that the TB parts cost will probably be covered under some special deal they have with GM for replacements even though my V is out of warranty. So all I may be out is labor for an hr long job Nice that a dealership seems to be shooting straight.
Now for my regular mechanic that $1K cost he quoted me = grrrr
