Re: Need recommendations on Throttle body.

you wont see a power increase with just a TB. I would do a set of underdrive pullies, a CAI, and look at a dyno tune or what not (with free future tunes like amazon racing does) you coul do a polished upper AND TB but dont do just the TB.

Re: Need recommendations on Throttle body.

The throttle body will aid perfromance but SpectorV is correct, it is actually one of the last upgrades you put on because it has to work with other things like full intake and exhaust to get the gains. It kind of sucks because it is a relatively inexpensive part but those are just the dynamics of it. I also agree that BBK makes a respectable TB. That is what I have on mine.
