For anyone at a loss on how to disassemble their throttle body, I put together a “how to” when took mine apart. This was for a stock S14 DOHC KA throttle body, but the steps should more or less apply to any throttle body of similar design – Q45, Z32, SR, SOHC KA, RB, etc.
I was surprised as the process turned out to be much easier than expected. It just required a little organization and attention. You can see the finished product above. The throttle body was disassembled, then the housing was bead blasted and powder coated with high gloss clear. The pulleys were covered in wet black.
