no, V6 too, this line passes hot water through the TB to help car on cold starts for what i know. So by removing it you should get colder air.. maybe +1whp

it is to prevent ice from forming onto the TB..

you wont gain much at all, but i guess if your looking for every ounce of power you can get you could do it.. haha

What about removing the lines from the TB and having something cold like CO2 or even N2o run threw it. You could in essence chill the TB and possibly cool the air coming into the intake manifold. Not sure if its feasible, Just an idea.....

Typically you only get ice in carburators, it's due to the air moisture content and the temp drop because of the cooling effect of the fuel going into the airstream.
Since I believe these are all multiport engines, there is no fuel present in the TB, thus no ice.

Could you?, yes.
Is it worth the time/money?, no.
Better would be to throw a bag of ice on the intake if you want cooling.
