we've replaced countless throttle bodies without changing the gasket. Mind you, it is very fragile and must be done with care. The coolant lines to the throttle body are meant to route hot coolant through the tb to prevent the intake charge from freezing during really cold weather. However, most have agreed that this usually not necessary in most climates. It also does heat intake charge, thus ultimately causing u to loose power. The idle control valve still fuctions perfectly with or without coolant lines attached
