Question about bbk 78 mm throttle intake

Since I already have a bbk cold air kit, with 75mm throttle body, would the few extra hp really be worth the $250?

Here's the info on it......

1780 96-04 78mm Throttle Intake - 4.6L GT $249.99
Another Design and Patented Performance first from BBK Performance – This all new BBK 78mm throttle intake incorporates a high flow intake plenum and a larger 78mm BBK throttle body all in one great performing unit.

Add 10-15 RWHP & 10-15 RWTQ with this direct bolt-on.

This patent pending design has all the quality features you would expect from a BBK product - built from lightweight 356 aluminum castings this kit comes complete with all the necessary hardware ...and horsepower!

Re: Question about bbk 78 mm throttle intake

Generally with wider throttle bodies the only benefit turns out to be a throttle response. At most you may see something like a ~1 HP increases under the best of circumstances. But chances are likely tou won't even see that.

However IMHO it is not the worst idea to do especially if you have bigger plans for the car. For instance if you decide to allow the car to breathe even easier (CAI, full exhaust) a wider throttle body can be seen as a component in the setup.

Where the greatest benefit comes in is when you go Forced Induction. If you plan on doing so than installing the TB at any point is a smart step.

Yeah, Forced Induction as in superchargers and turbochargers.

If you have questions than ask away, it's what we are here for. It may be noteworthy to let you know to do a quick search on the forum first as you might find your answers. Certain topics like lowering have been discussed countless times and if you are looking for a quick answer than the search may work better, meaning you would not have to wait for a response to a thread.
