    Yeah, I like having a smaller displacement car now that I have to pay for the gas. I actually rode in a GTP recently and it's a nice car, but it's quite a thirsty vehicle and the supercharger doesn't sound too pleasant.

    Today I went to a you-pick used auto parts/recycling yard and picked up a 3400 throttle body, since I read it has a larger bore. The place was quite big, but I only found one 3400 SFI engine before it began to rain, so me and my friend ripped it out and ran to the building.

    It's in so-so shape. Some of it is a little rusted, but nothing that won't clean up.

    I'm going to need a new gasket unless I can salvage the one off my stock one (currently on the vehicle). The one on here looked like it was in good shape until I tried to take it off.

    It appears that the part the throttle cable wraps around is shaped differently. The flucrum there would slow initial throttle degree changes; would this in any way affect the computer's actions based on the throttle positioning sensor? (It seems to use the throttle as a guide to how much performance I want out of the vehicle, and this may make it try to go fast while the throttle body opening isn't open enough for it to go fast yet.)

    Welcome! Always nice to see a newer style GP with a 60V6 instead of the 90V6.

    Hello, I'm Steve. I discovered this place a while back when I started looking for parts for My 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix, and almost every search I made had this site in the results, so today I finally signed up. Most of the work I do to the car/engine is low budget, so I probably won't be too knowledgeable about problems with superchargers or engine swaps, but I understand the basics.
