Go with getting a Exhaust instead, I've been informed by many Techs, that a TB is not all that important or necessary.

I don't know how intense the Emissions testing is in Texas, but a "Tuner" is another item you can get.

Re: throttle body

IMO TB should be almost last bolt on. Tuner, gears, pulleys should be next IMO. Always go for appearence.

Re: throttle body

That's cool. You know it all helps so you can't go wrong. Unless you get a 90mm TB lol. I'd go 70 or 75 tops.

I would go with a 70mm. You really won't get full gains of a CAI without the throttle body combo. Getting a lot of air in like that is good and a nice exhaust helps getting all the air out.

Any Bigger than that on an NA motor can actually hinder performance. It's not all about the amount of air it flows but the velocity of the air is just as important

Im running Professional Products and had to modify mine to fit the throttle cable in..

They sell Trickflow for a decent price.. And I dont think brand matters but thats just me.. BBK is pricey..

Unless you have a Vortech Supercharger or a Turbo or Nitrous dont go above A 70mm Throttlebody.

If your all Motor stick with a 70mm Throttle Body Its the perfect about of air for your engine.

The 75mm always gives more horsepower than the 70mm it also is beneficial to FI but when it comes down to racing its like it's Probebly like a couple of thousands of a second difference in 1/4 mile b/w 70 and 75. I'd go with the 75. Idk much about the 78. I went with 75 but I have a lot of mods. did help a lot in acceleration! my suggestion 75. Really does help throttle response

Oh trick flow combo is the way to go off AM

Dyno test prove anything bigger than a 70mm loses power on a motor without supercharger/turbo or NOS. I'm sure it's not a lot but it is proven.

Have you had the 70mm before? American muscle recommend the 70mm because they stated anything higher is pointless. Not saying your wrong or anything just saying what I was told by them and the dyno everything.
