Question on the thottle body heat bypass
I was dropping off one of my Mercedes today to my mechanic and was telling her (yes, her) about a few things I did yesterday to my R, including the throttle body heat bypass. She looked puzzled as I told her, per the forum, that the TB runs cooler and better performance with this done (per the tutorial). She said that the reason for coolant transfer at the TB is to draw heat FROM the TB! ?? Thoughts?? Before you discredit her because she is a her she works on lots of high end European cars and is very good (and darn cute also).
