Best throttle body?

I got a stock automatic 2001 Ford Mustang GT. I haven't bought anything performance wise. I was looking to buy a throttle body. What's the best throttle body? I'm looking to get an intake and 4.10 gears as well.

Everyone seems to like the trickflow Plenum and throttle body combo from summit. It's $279 with free shipping. From what I have researched it is the best bang for your Buck IMO. I will get one of these in a couple months myself.

Get the gears to for sure. I got 410s last year and it is worth it for sure. Go with Ford Racing if you do get gears, their a great set!

I would get a tune/tuner as one of your first couple mods too . You can fix your speedo with it after the rearend is changed out plus tie all your mods and future mods in as you go.

The BEST throttle body is the Accufab... but its a rip off for the price they want. The one to get, as has already been stated, is the Trick flow 75mm TB/Plenum combo off of Summit. Just changing the TB is a waste since the plenum on the 99-04 cars remained the same from 96-98 and is restrictive. Going to a bigger plenum along with the TB will open things up like they should be.

If you have done exhaust yet, I wouldn't bother with a throttle body upgrade. Not saying you need exhaust for it, I'm just saying having it sound good would be more important to me.
