This TB came out of nowhere! I created a post on it today since I was contemplating a purchase myself. Please let us know how it feels.

My servicing dealer although quite competent, is of the same persuasion...he won't do anything that in their opinion voids the factory warranty. He installed ported throttle bodies on two Z06's I have owned....a 2016 and a 2018 with no hesitation. I don't believe the Solar Engineering ported throttle body (or any of the available ported throttle bodies) actually boosts horsepower in any way (only more air and fuel can do that), it simply helps the air flow and thus the mixing of air and fuel more precise. The low end bog the C7 Z06's are famous for, all but disappears with this Solar Engineering modification. Personally, I am very confident that my warranty remains intact with this update.

I went from a Mamo TB to the Soler TB, and the difference is dramatic. The Mamo definitely improved the off-idle hesitation, but the Soler virtually eliminated it! This is not a knock on the Mano piece, rather a ringing endorsement of the Soler!! Mike stands behind his product, too, and his focus on satisfying his customers is excellent!

Now do you have a stock intake on your car OR you changed yours? And if so, which brand intake did you get. Trying to get all this info straight on what products work the best in conjunction with each other, because ive seen all kinds of mod combos on this site, just makes me wonder.

My Z06 is stock other than BMS air filter, non-catted x and ATAK exhaust.
