Popular mod for the Southerners, as the coolant is needed to keep the TB from freezing-up in the Winter...but there's no way its 6hp...no way.

Just bypass the throttle body by connecting the overflow tank directly to the metal coolant crossover pipe on the block. When I installed the Maggie, it worked well and I didn't have to purchase any additional parts or clamps.

I dont understand what it is tho. And can you explain further what it does.

You can do this yourself for like $2 in parts, and no it's not 6rwhp. It's one of those "in theory it should help a little bit." We call em free mods.

OK, warm coolant is routed through the throttle body to keep it from freezing shut in the cold winter. People like me in Phoenix don't have to worry about that, so we sometimes redirect the coolant hosing and bypass the throttle body, keeping the hot coolant out of the TB which is metal. In theory, if hot coolant isn't running through the TB, it should be cooler in temperature, and thus shouldn't heat up the air that comes through it as much. Cooler air makes more power than warmer air, so there are your supposed power gains.

Go hear for the parts you can buy yourself for a couple bucks, and how to install yourself.
