Re: My version of a Throttle body spacer/coolant block.

Thats a bad idea.

One, there have been others that did a coolant lin block that have gotten throttle body freeze up on the drive by wire cars. Frozen throttle equals bad news.

Two, the car is always going to idle higher or even idle search due to warm coolant not getting to the TB.

Three, you netted exactly zero horsepower.

Four, when that silicone starts to detoriate that is all going to end up in your coolant system.
