PTFE tubing
#1
Has anyone tried PTFE tubing as a liner for the stock extruder throat ?
I'm wondering if this would help reduce heat creep when printing with PLA.

It won't fit. It's only wide enough to fit the 1.75mm filament.

There are different throats (called thermal barriers) you can get... but I believe the diameter and threading are different, so it would require some work to retrofit.
