Can a Throttle Body be repaired or must it be replaced?

Dealer says one of the motors had died in my TB and hence the car thinks its at WOT when it is not. Dealer quoting $950 for parts and labor saying it needs a new TB. The car has an AWE 750R kit and AWE tells me it's a OEM 997 GT3 TB not the TT factory unit.

Suggestions?

Give AWE a call to see exactly what's in the car. Personally when it comes to throttle bodies, I would go with a replacement. In particular since there is wiring/electronics in these things and the calibration is critical and I would want to be as sure as I can that the calibrations are perfect.

Thanks for the help. Turns out the part # AWE gave is for 2009 TT or GT2. Ill end up paying Porsche tax this time around, they have my car and part comes in Monday. Hopefully all will be good after that.

I am guessing you haven't seen the part number on the actual part yet. I would be curious what it is.
