you should have opted for the MAGNA...

related... I had a 01 Chevy Astro Van with the 4.3 V6 and the throttle body would look like that after about 10k miles. The butterfly valve would get hung up on the crap that built up and you'd have to stomp on the accelerator to brake it free which caused the vehicle to lunge from a stand still. So when I felt that occuring, I'd spray Gumout carb cleaner down the throttle body to clean out the varnish that collected there. Very similar to what you are seeing...
