    Please prefix all of your titles with

    1993 E36 318is -

    as per the posting rules.

    Smoothing off the throttle body means polishing it inside and removing any rough edges...

    but there will be no visible gains by doing that alone.
    Much better to get an exhaust system IMO (although more ££)

    You could get your throttle body bored out and that may help performance, cost is probably £100? that would give you a BBTB
