Yes. You will gain at least 100HP! J/K but how can anyone look at that dirty throttle body then comprehend jeep telling you not to clean it? A dirty TB can cause idle issues, and other odd throttle behaviors

Im sorry, I didn't take any after pics. It was super shiny and clean, though I'm not at all sure how effective the seafoam really is at cleaning the TB just by following their instructions. I had to soak my TB for for over an hour respraying it every 10 mins or so and scrubbing it with a tooth brush, and I barely got all the black off the back side. The instructions say to spray it in for 2-3 mins with the enigine running at about 1500rpm (I pinned the accelerator pedal with a 30 lb weight) then turn the engine off for 5 mins. Then you're suppose to do some WOTs on the highway, my first WOT acceleration up an onramp spewed blue smoke out the exhaust pipe like a diesel, the person I was passing was probably pissed lol. My engine seems to be starting smoother and I hit 23 MPG on the freeway with the cruise set at 65 mph on level ground according to the on board computer, and I usually only get in the 22s so that's a good sign. It's still too soon, I'll know in a few gas tanks if there's been any real gains. My engine seems like it's running smoother in general, but that's probably the placebo effect more than anything else.
