Is it possible to calibrate your throttle body because my brother and I were playing around with VAG-COM yesturday and it says that my throttle body is only opening to 85% when the pedal is to the floor. Any ideas why it might be doing this?

It is normal... If you open it anymore than that, the butterfly in the throttle body will actually be CLOSING since it would go beyond the middle position...

It is 85 degs not 85%. They did not start using % till 2000 on the dbw cars.
