Id go bbk cause it's both and its a good tb. But if not going f/i you dont necessarily need anymore than a 75mm

Because it won't really make a difference. Bigger isn't always better when it comes to modding.

Like midnight says there is no need for 75+ without boost. 70 would do but it's not that much bigger than the stock bore size.

I have the 78mm....you will see very similar gains between 75 and 78...I got mine "incase" I ever decided to go fi, guess what, I fell into a centrifugal SC deal and now have a pro charger sitting in the closet waiting on supporting mods. I say get the 78, it's cheaper and won't hurt your car

I got a BBK 78mm throttle intake for free and can't complain. Seems to pull a little better up top. Is a TB/plenum worth 250+ dollars when it's all said and done? No.

Thanks for the advice, I will think about it, I am leaning toward the 78

I work for a vendor of BBK's products, and we hosted them at a car show. The unit was a blem (had a scuff) and I needed to find a fitting for it from a local hardware store. Also scored a CAI for my wife's 05 v6. Great products.

It was a rare occasion that I got freebies. I have ordered parts directly from Steeda and BBK though

I had the 78 bbk on a stock motor and loved it.

Totally plug and play, and the 78 had a nice whistle to it.

I went KB so White03 bought my BBK and KN Cai.

It was plug and play for him too.
