Gotta be a bit more specific than that. Did you upgrade the plenum as well or just the throttlebody?

No matter what you added, a tuner ties all your mods together. Your engine doesn't know what to do with the extra airflow, and a tuner would change your ratios to more accommodate the additional flow

A perfect example of the uselessness of a CAI. There's no more air flowing into your engine than before, you've moved the location of the Mass Airflow sensor so now your car needs a tune to accommodate for that...
Id take it off and put the stock air box back on.
You need to remove the transmission to replace the throw out bearing.

Throwout bearing requires the whole transmission to come out to replace it. If you are going to do that do the clutch while you are at it and get the flywheel resurfaced. Its not cheap at any rate.

What size is the throttle body that you installed?

To replace the throw out bearing is the same amount of labor to do a clutch replacement so you may look into doing the whole job while you have it apart. If you don't have the proper tools, removing the transmission can be difficult. I don't know exactly how much it would cost to have a shop do the work but I'll take a guess and say around $1000 to do the entire clutch job and probably $600 or $700 for just the throw out bearing.
What's wrong with the bearing? Is it squeaking?

I just got the clutch replaced but now after a few months my clutch pedal is bouncing around so I was assuming it was my throw out bearing

Bouncing around, huh?
You can feel it through the pedal?
Maybe you should take it back to the shop that did the work and have them look at it...

If you hear a lot of whining coming from the transmission area on deceleration (most noticeable with engine braking) then thats your throwout bearing, make sure it is that before you actually pull the transmission. Speaking of that, mine is practically shot so i can hear that pretty bad lol.

Well you have to pull the transmission out, do you think that's hard to do? It was pretty easy for me.

78mm throttle body? on a stock engine?.... thats your problem. That throttle body is for forced induction, not natural aspiration.... its too big. Im pretty sure that 70mm is as large as you want to go without a turbo or supercharger. a 78mm TB will make your car lose power.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the CAI/TB combo you bought is useless on your car. can you return it and get the correct TB?

I don't think so but I was reading up on it and it said a tuner would fix that and I also called the place and they said a tuner would help

You should not have to tune for bolt ons in a 2V, period. When you did the CAI did you spray the hell out of the filter with the K&N oil because that can foul a MAF sensor like crazy. I'd clean your MAF element and go from there. I've got a CAI/Plenum on my 2V and the tune is stock and it pulls as hard as a stock 2V can.

buy a can of MAF cleaner spray from parts store.
Remove MAF
Spray the wire elements inside the MAF
Reinstall

the wire elements can break if touched, be careful with them

If really dirty, you can use a very fine artist paint brush along with MAF spray to help remove deposits.
