just find a 4.0 with a throttle body in the junk yard. There are 4 10mm bolts holding it down so you will need a 1/4" ratchet, a small extention, and deep 10 socket. bring a flathead screwdriver aswell to help with intake hose removal. thats all you need to remove it. There are two electrical componants which need to be swapped from the original to the new one(connectors are different). youll need tamperproof torx to swap. Its basically a nuts and bolts job. not very difficult at all and worth it. i paid 25.00 for the tb and a set of never used tow hooks off another truck that was sitting there.
As soon as i get the chance ill throw the gtech on and see what my 0-60 is.
