Question Hi everybody!! i'm a new member so i'm introducing myself and an idea i just had

nice to meet you, i'm hondur.

Does anyone think theres a market for refurbished throttle bodys? With the IACV and FITV both cleaned and serviced? My thoughts are that since i have several laying around, and idle fluctuation issues are common, its a good plan to thoroughly clean em, paint them black, and sell them so even an inexperienced DIYer can repair their poorly idling civic and only need to remove four bolts.

to be fair hes only asking if their is a market for them. Imo I would say no unless you sold them for 10 bucks shipped.

It is a fine line he is walking.

But to be properly cleaned and recalibrated, as well as sensors checked, TB blade clearance checked.......

Yeah, way more to it than you think.

I found my idle issues years later by viewing my pics on photobucket.

Those TBs would be "marketable" if you are able to bore them all out to something like 68mm or 70mm.
You might be able to sell them faster.

I'll consult the FSM and some books in regards to complete refurbishing, the for that advice mista bone. I am aware that larger throttle bodys are more desirable, but b7 units are like >50% of all EGs so I think that helps in regards to dyi'ers not enthusiasts.

I was mostly thinking that cleaning and testing them would be sufficient.
