Its not bad actually

I run it on my car currently. I don't notice a difference high in the power band but I can tell the difference from launch. I like it for what it cost me. The box claims 10 to 20 horsepower. I'd say without a tune you're looking at 4 to 5. With a tune maybe you can achieve the box's numbers.

My friend is a really good mechanic. He said theoretically it should give good HP gains, more air means more power right?????

dude trust me its not worth it. if anything port it. other members will agree with me. the only time when a larger throttle body will actually give you $400 worth of gains is if you go FI

Id have to agree man that new tb is useless unless used with FI. Besides that your gna see a 4hp gain which is crap. You will get the same resukts if not better by porting and polishing your TB and Intake Mani. I did it and I felt the difference throughout the rpm range.

Like everyone else is saying the throttle body isn'tgonna do anything unless you port your intake. You gotta bigger tb but its pointless cuz your intake can't flow anymore than before. Your just feeding Into a restriction.

Its useless and only makes a cool sound hahaha I have it but thats cuz I got it free cuz my friend traded in his car and had no use for it. I felt a tiny throttle response gain but that could be a placebo. Besides that all its good for is eye candy and a cool sound haha
