From what I've read and heard I would pass on the throttle body. Either finish up the exhaust, lower her, or do some cosmetic stuff.

What have you heard about the throttle body out of curiosity?

I know this isn't questioned to me but any throttle body that isn't adapted to the intake manifold is useless....bigger opening slamming air into a smaller opening and the flat edges of the intake that will be sticking out will be creating a lot of turbulence!

Little to no gains in HP. Basically a hood ornament and nothing more

Yep. What he said. Waste of money unless someone makes a larger intake for our v6 models. Which they don't yet.

OP,

I agree, going with LT headers and an Xpipe is a great next step. More power and an aggressive throaty exhaust is very addicting! We installed BBK LT headers and an O/R Xpipe on our Procharged 2011 v6. I've been hooked ever since I first heard it!
