Why does my truck have a throttle body?

At least that is what I think it is? I was watching this video and this motor doesn't have one. Mine is located between the intake manifold and the intake elbow.

Also has anyone done the ratchet strap method to get the up pipe to seal like he does in the video? I am going tomorrow to get a new clamp that I bent and hopefully can get this exhaust leak fixed.

It isn't a throttle body. It is a restriction valve to prevent run-away. It was eliminated in '05 because they found it wasn't needed.

can this valve be deleted? Does it cause any restriction on the motor?

Yes, it's there to pause airflow to allow EGR flow. What I did was remove it from the truck, unscrew the throttle plate, and reinstall. I left it connected so the PCM could spin the plateless shaft to it's heart's content............. thinking it was still intact, no codes generated.

Or if you want to delete the whole assembly, put on an '05-'07 intake elbow.

My truck had one. But my late 04 sets the light if it's not Plugged in. So I have it sitting on top of the motor for the time being

So if I just find a stock 06 elbow and IC pipe I can get ride of it? The reason being 06 is because I don't want the 05 plastic IC pipe. And could I possibly have a tune wrote so it won't throw a code?

The 05-07 came with the plastic pipe, my 06 had one.
The 05 and newer elbow will work with your metal pipe and boot.
