Supposedly the throttle plate is there to create a partial vacuum yo help with the EGR. Some truck have it and some don't. GHG, I have the service CD. I can post the torque specs and stuff like that. Well the linkage won't get gunked it with soot and stick closed. This causes a loss of power condition. Keith

I have an '04 and I wanted to install an '05 Accufab elbow and do away entirely with the throttle assembly. Last weekend I installed the new elbow and now I'm throwing a CEL. IDP is working with SCT to find a programming fix. Anyone have this problem?
