Question:
If you bypass the coolant line on the throttle body does the entering air become cooler? I pose this question because my cousin has an F body which has kits available to accomplish this. However, the proximity of the throttle body to the transmission on the altima compared a smallblock chevy could present a different situation. According to the "experts" of the F body, the coolant lines are placed on the throttle body to increse the temperature of the incoming air forcing the car to warm up faster.
There have been Dyno test to prove this, however are Altimas do not have small block chevys under the hood.
Does anyone know if the coolant lines are there to cool? And has anyone tried this? Sorry for the length.

I saw kits for this on Ebay a couple days ago, I just had a hard time believing this was a real performance mod. Maybe I'll look into it now (the bypass, not the Ebay kit), even though on my stock-mobile it won't make any difference.
