Thanks for the feedback guys. Mine has been replaced with genuine in 2009, 2012, 2014 and 2016. I'll talk with my mechanic about it.

Mine's leaking again and might just be worth it to pony up $230 for this stupid part.
My old throttle body starting leaking again during the summer (4 years after the last gasket replacement). I ended up ordering the Falconwerks brass body. It has been 6 months now. Will report back in a couple of years.

Contemplating whether or not to spend the $229.12 on the upgraded part.

I don't know about you, but I've got better ways to spend $200.

I've proactively done the bypass on a handful of trucks, and never had an issue... even when I lived in Minnesota with below-zero temps for weeks at a time. The design is poor, and the risk of failure far outweighs any benefit I can see, even with an updated plate.

I just replaced with original but this will be the last time. Next time it leaks I'll be connecting the 2 lines together and forget about it.
