Best throttle body and plenum setup

I got an 04 gt and was wanting to get a 70mm tb and plenum. I don't plan on going like a supercharger or turbo just a daily driver with a little more get up on the streets. I was thinking the Stack Racing throttle body and plenum but I wanted to see your guys' thoughts. Let me know what you got and how you like it.

I have the 70mm combo also stack, great mod gives a lot more throttle response. I would go any bigger than a 70mm it's Dyno proven that you will loser some power with anything over 70mm.

Not really!.. If your not going FI then 70mm is the best gains you'll see!.. I've got a 75mm on mine right now and saw some good gains, but I'm planning to go turbo next year!..

That's what I've heard too. Anything bigger than 70mm could potentially hurt your car and lose power gains. Thanks dudes!

Is the spacer necessary or just a paper weight?

For the price of most spacers I would say no!.. On a NA motor with just basic bolt ons maybe 1-2 more hp!.. On a built FI motor maybe as much as 10hp!...

I do have a Spacer from Steeda, and at the time it was on sale and I only paid like $25 for it!.. Didn't notice any real gains with it!..

You will get different opinions from everyone, my opinion I think it's not worth the money for just a inch of aluminum. Not much gains for the price.

I think its a waste of money for the plenum to be honest yea makes under the hood look better and you can hear the car sucking air but cant tell much power gains, if you wanna feel a difference in your car put some 373s in it or 410s youll be 110% more satisfied then a plenum.

My friend just fabbed this up for his '03 GT. It's a fully built vortech car with a c4 and all the other goodies. It runs in the high 9's. He has some more work to do to it yet, for now he's going to run the twin 57mm TB.
