Drosselklappen / Drosselventile
Explanation:
Throttle is actually a short form of throttle valve = Drosselklappe / Drosselventil. These would be valves located in the air-flow system, since the fule is injected. Since such a valve is usually a component in itself, one can probably leave the "bodies" out.

Hello! Thanks a lot for your answer! I was looking for a different term to use for throttle body, to distinguish between "Drosselventil/-klappe und -body, though. It's great that you answered!
Best wishes, Eveline
