    Whenever I slow down and the rpm is under 1000, no pedals being pressed, the RPMs start to go up and down and at sometimes can hit close to 0 and the car feels like its jittering.

    Bolt on 70mm Throttle body

    I followed the airbox modification with a throttle body upgrade. I found a 70mm bolt on on Ebay made by Blowfish Racing, no modification needed for the throttle cable or TPS. My old throttle body would stick near idle and I figured bigger is better. The new TB matched the intake at 70mm...
