Re: throttle body

Went I put one on my GT along with the plenium it was worth it far as response and I noticed a good increase in pull power.

I'm sure you will but to get a 100% of the benefit you should get the combo package.

Plenum is necessary.. 70mm will fit but won't flow 70mm because your stock plenum is less than 70 mm.. It will flow less cfm.. Get the upper plenum with at least a 70 mm opening.. I believe they make 70's and 75s.... Summit had them on sale for $80 last month, don't know if that deal is still going on...

I have one, but can't realize the potential till I go PI. I think it will work out great. Great throttle response. Like I said, my only restriction now is not having PI heads.

If you live close by or want to pay for shipping I have PI heads but it will need a valve though.

150$? That's a steal! Last97 if you have a air compressor then maybe you could get a porting kit from mr gasket. Because I think porting your own heads and being able to brag about it... Lol I just stole that idea from an episode from horse power tv I watched today. It was called "porting and polishing your own heads" or something like that ha ha.. I don't know thou really if it's that hard, but it sure didn't look that hard...

Yeah sorry, but American Muscle has a throttle body and plenum by SR performance I think that's the brand for real good price... Actually I just looked at them, and the body is $149. And the plenum is on sale for $119. That's s steal too I think...
