But the ETM problem is supposed to only go to '01 Turbos, and '02 NA cars. With an '03, you are not supposed to have this problem.

Eek, and they let you out in public?!

j/k!

Your throttle body is a plate enclosed in a housing which controls the amount of air entering your engine. It rotates 90 degrees between fully closed and fully open. It is controlled via a cable connected to your gas pedal

Essentially true, but that cable is conducting electrons instead of mechanical force and there's a plenty of processing power, sensors and an actuator involved. http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif
