What is the best way to do this.

Learning as I go.

Thanks

take both hoses off the throttle body- take the one hose off the coolant pipe- hook the one still hooked up to the place where you just took the other hose off in the coolant pipe and reinstall some clamps on it- leave the throttle body with nothing on it

it will not buy you anything other than speed up the time you get a leak :) :)

Thanks AJT86. Steve what do you mean? You wouldn't recommend it?

it doesnt give you anything- search on it, the air passes by too fast to be affected by any heat

Eventually, one of those two lines will spring a leak. When that happens, you can unhook that one, and loop the other one around, back to the coolant pipe. That will fix the leak, and bypass the coolant around the throttle body. One hose, two birds- sort of.
