The theory is that in stock form, (without TB) the temp fluctuates between hot and cold, Some believe this is not good for the engine. WITH the TB, it comes up to normal operating temp and stays there like your car does. Others believe this is better for your engine. I tend to agree with the latter as I know metals expand and contract with temp differences and it just seems to me the sooner you get an engine up to temp and hold it there, the better.
