    So, I got the throttle body malfunction code merging into an intersection! Car feels very sluggish and it's like it wants to turn off! Any solutions before taking her to a dealer?

    Actually you only need to take off the positive terminal, then mash on the brakes, that will drain any residual current very quickly.

    So apparently my Throttle Body had to be replaced. My dealer was extremely helpful and understanding. Dropped off the car Friday morning and picked her up today. Technician said that so far, they have had to replaced 3 Throttle bodies on SRT products. He didnt say if it was a Hellcat only problem (do 392 SRT Challengers use the same Throttle Body as the Hellcat? I doubt it), but he did say that he was able to get me the only available throttle body IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY! Okkkkkkk. Guess I'm one lucky SOB.

    She rides beautiful again and i can sleep in peace also.

    392 uses an 80mm throttle body. The 'Cat uses a 92mm throttle body and a 64mm bypass throttle body (the one connected vertically to the supercharger housing).
