    Default Throttle Body gasket.

    Just a quick question for your guys, as part of the recent work on the car I had cause to remove the throttle body, I did notice when taking it off that it only had 3 of the 4 nuts in place. Anyway I also noticed there was no gasket between throttle body and plenum. This struck me as odd, especially as I've just seen on a website a gasket for the Q4 throttle body. So for those of you the have had your throttle bodies off recently, should there be a gasket there?

    Cheers

    Never actually removed mine. I expect a smear of a liquid gasket maker should do the trick in the absence of the proper gasket.
