so far i see my waja 52,000km the throttle body is still clean...i see my
frens waja 100,000+km the throttle body also still clean.....u can check
urs and see.

but one thing i suggest is, go port & polish the throttle body...price
not too expensive... around rm80-rm100 at powerzone. u'll get better
throttle response that u can feel!! even cheaper than getting those
powerup gadgets :) hehehe

I'm not sure about this.. last time i was thinking that my t/body kotor..
then i send to normal workshop for cleaning.. after few days my timing dah
x betul.. baru tadi i pergi Proton Service.. he saying that my Stepper
Motor dah nak kong... Harga dia 1k++ arghhh is it true if u had ur t/body
clean will effect stepper motor.. n this mechanic from proton servis saying
that t/body waja doesn't need for cleaning just wipe with tisu or kain..
itu jer.

...

err ... wira's one .. my dad wira's after 5 or 6 years balu start clean it
. but nowadays wira SE all few months then clean liao ...

since both throttle body get the air flow from the air filter , i dun see
why it is clean when wira's is problematic ... maybe it is not the time to
be cleaned yet ?

After thousands of kms (say 100,000kms) running, your throttle body after
butterfly valve will get dirty
