Thanks, I got alot of help from the forums also. The job would have gone easier if I had all the right tools and parts ready to go. Hell I started working on it at 10 pm, and I didn't even think to get a "T" beforehand!
You are referring to the throttle body, and yes, you just take off those 4 bolts, pop off the throttle body's electrical connector, and that's it. As long as you don't try to do it with the car running or something, the car won't cry about it. If you forget to reconnect the electrical connector, it will just go into limp mode until you reconnect it anyway, no big deal.
