I have an '06 Freestyle that apparently needs the throttle body and mass air flow sensor replaced. Dealer's estimate is over $1200 (parts and labor), but I can find the parts online for WAY less and either do it myself or have it done for a lot less.
My question is, there are 2 throttles bodies listed for the '06 3.0 liter. One with water heated and one without water heated.
How do I tell which one I have?

The water heated one has two small diameter hoses clamped to it, the other one dosent. Early builds have it later year builds dont.
