Question How Much of a Gain?

I have read many posts that talk about adding a Throttle Body to a V6.....Most say you won't have enough of a gain or no gains.

How about adding the following?

1) 73 mm Throttle Body
2) Bigger Fuel Injectors
3) Milled Heads
4) Polish and Port

Not much. Especially without a tune. It'll be good for supporting other mods in the future.

My assumption would be the throttle body is a waste and injectors are a waste without forced induction

Even so, it's probably only good for a few HP and only at the higher RPMs. Adding full (as in headers too) exhaust and a good CAI will work together with that for a decent gain. How much of a gain vs without a TB upgrade, I'm not really sure.

Also natestang07 is right, the bigger injectors will do absolutely nothing unless you are going to have FI. The throttle body will also help with FI.
