    on the manifold under the throttle body there is an opening with two passages
    what the hell is it for?

    and can i disconnect the coolant hoses that go to my throttle body without complications?

    those coolant lines control the fast idle assembly. go for it.. connect them together but be prepared for a rough idle if it is cold out.
