Bigger Throttle boddy? Is it a must?

Have a pro charger p-s1c on my 2000 gt and bought it like this not to long ago. Is it just me or should I have a bigger Throttle body to accommodate the forces induction? I have stock throttle body on right now

A larger tb would be a major plus for your car being forced induction.

Make sure you get the tb and plenum as that would probably be most beneficial.

Unless your going to replace the whole intake manifold, I personally would go with the 78mm TB from BBK!... It's the largest TB for our cars and it's all one piece!..

It has an aftearket plenum already. The guy that had it before me had a shop in Kansas bore it out to a 5.0

You can't bore it to a 5.0. That's a stroker kit. If you did stroke/ bore it to a 5.0 you would gain a little torque but you would be shortening your power band due to the extended stroke. You could get more out of your engine with a bigger t/b. however IMO if your car is running good I wouldn't pay the 200 ish for a bigger tb and the money for re tuning it just for a few hp. A few parts then yeah, but a tb alone ? Just me though.

With FI you can actually gain about 10+ more HP at the wheels, with a larger TB!...
