Default idle control valve

is it possible to just not run this little bitch? i blocked mine off on the honda and and i had to give it some gas on cold starts but other than that it worked fine. would it act the same on this car also?

also i noticed alot of coolant passages in the intake manifold and one that came out of the head where the intake manifold connects to the head. could i block that off or does that need to flow somewhere?

Don't know, but i'm curious to know why you want to?

I'd just block it off to test it out.

i have mine blocked and cold idle sucks and i cant realy idle with the AC on or anyother high laod like that it just acts like a auto chocke on startup and compensatory throttle on high load ie AC and other situation. just make sure ot block it good i used a cut off broom handle on mine.
