Throttle body

I just installed a viper throttle body and yes it is a noteable improvement. I have a 2010 2 door auto. The throttle is more responsive and revs to a higher rpm. It sounds like the old 4 bbl kicking-in. I`ve only gone a few miles so i yet to know any mph change. I`ll find out on my next trip to reno.Let you know. I do have a cai (k&n) and finally took off that regretable tbs. As always, i forgot that when you re-hook the battery the horn goes OFF.

Any adapter needed to complete the install or was it straight bolt on?

As I have posted elsewhere, I did this mod and it started throwing codes. Specifically, the ETC and ESC lights come on while cruising at highway speeds. No issues in city driving, where improved throttle response and MPG was noted. I'd be interested if anyone else encounters this problem or if it is limited to my situation (high altitude and SC Flashpaq).

Just an update: no code issues with larger TB when SC programmer was removed (returned to stock). A good improvement in throttle response by itself.
