Im not to familiar with the edge CAI, since I didnt get one. But overall Im very impressed with the design of the chip, and TB. The plugs that they use are the same quality if not better the OE.

Or just pull yours off and have any machine shop bore it. I did mine at home on my lathe in about 5 minutes.
I'd bet a machine shop wouldn't charge more than $50.00 if you brought it in stripped down.

60mm is the largest you can get without changing throttle blades, IIRC..basically just removing the taper off the backside. 62-63mm TB's have a new throttle blade, and are bored straight thru the taper top and bottle.

Ya know, I don't recall the diameter of mine. Do you know the diameter of the bore in the manifold?

I just installed mine yesterday on my 06 LJ. I like it but that damn whistle is too much. I get the whistle whenever releasing the throttle and also when warming up.

I have the AEM intake that came with a throttle body spacer installed too. Finding other posts about whistling led me to believe that taking off the spacer might help and it did but only a little.

The added power is noticable. I wanted it because I don't want to regear and I wanted the added power at speed. I can attest that there is a definate improvement at speed as now I can keep my cruise at 75 in 6th and it keeps speeds. I am at 5k elevation and I am impressed thus far.

Again, my only complaint is the whistle. If I can't get that fixed then it's coming off. It's that damn loud!

...with a throttle body spacer installed too.

Is anyone else getting this whistle or is likely just the throttle body spacer causing the whistle here?

haha yes I actually spoke with Edge about this. Since this is a bit bigger bore TB, and the fact the OE TB has a chamfered edge on it, it creates a wistle. I have been advised that there isnt a leak. Many people tend to have this noise. My opinion is the noise is worth the gains. Gluck

Try chamfering or scalloping the bottom edge of the idle air inlet port in the throttle body to disturb the air flow over that structure. This eliminated the whistle in mine after I bored it out. I think one of the companies that makes big bore throttle bodies does this.

No pictures, but, if you look at the TB bore under the throttle plate there is an openning. This is where the idle air valve allows air to bypass the throttle plate (there's one above the plate also). Remove the sharp edge on the lower part of the opening to allow a smoother flow of air. I used a die grinder to produce a (roughly) 1/8" chamfer.

I removed the TB spacer and it didn't help much. I called Edge and they recommended disconecting their computer and go stock there. This would isolate the noise to the TB. It didn't chankge anything so I called them back.

They are sending another TB. The reason is is that when I screwed back in the IAC the screw moved one of those silver "freeze plug" looking silver caps. This might be interfering with the airflow when the butterfly valve is in nuetral (which is the only time I get the whistle).

I shall see and post here when I try another TB.

Oh for the love of God I have been trying to get rid of the whistle for 3 days now!! I love the kit but I'm gonna end up putting my stock throttle body back on. The whistle is all I can hear. I put on the full kit with the CAI, the TB, and the Module. I also put on aluminum headers, and full Borla exhuast. The WHISTLE IS SO FREAKING LOUD it's ruining the whole experience for me. Everyone walking down the street and turns and looks to see what is making that god awful noise. There are definitely power gains, but with the full exhaust, the CAI, and the module hopefully I won't lose too much of my new found HP with the stock TB back on. Anyone wanna buy an Edge TB? I am not so happy with their tech support. I told them about the whistle and they knew exactly what I was talking about sent me some pics of where to Dremel it smoother but it didn't help at all and now they won't return my calls or emails and I can't get anyone on the phone, just VM. I have to give it 3 stars instead of 5 just because of the freaking noise. F*&*! It's so damn loud!
