Bbk 73mm throttle body

I'm debating weather to get the bbk 73mm throttle body which you pair up with my Airaid CAI and a bama tune. Could anyone that has it give me some insight?

The throttle body is a good mod to do once you're kinda out of stuff to do. I've heard it helps to tick over the 300rwhp mark

Lol...oh in that case it's worth 500.00! Gears and a tuner are still the best bang for the buck. I did like how the CAI made my car SOUND, along with the MBRP axle backs. If I was going to do one, somebody is making 80mm kits and selling them on this site....I would probably try one for the price he's selling them at!

OP, My friendly advice to you would be this. If you really want the 73mm throttle body, buy a pre owned one and don't pay any more than $175. Max!

If you keep the 3.73 gears and you plan on continuing your 100+ mph highway cruising, you may want to consider a new drive shaft.

Whether I keep the gears or not the aluminum DS sounds like a good idea!

When everything in your house's water system is the same, including water pressure, pipe diameters, etc., why do you think a larger faucet will make the water run faster?

It could make you "feel" faster, because it opens up quicker, but you can achieve the same thing by pressing your gas pedal a little further.

80mm, it needs the holes to just be extended / re-drilled - covered in depth on this forum. I'll link you to my original WTS thread so we're not breaking any rules selling out of that section:

3.7 Intake manifold + 5.0 Throttle body

I think that money would be much better spent on really good tires, the best investment for any sports car! You can accelerate faster, brake harder, turn in better, and overall improve drivability.

I have the Airaid CAI and the BBK 73mm TB. The CAI made the car sound deeper (to include the exhaust note). The throttle body did the same but you could feel the midrange power boost. No tuner here yet but so I'm expecting more then. Without the tune, the midrange increase with the TB is surprisingly good. I'm happy with my set up of both but I suppose if I had to choose one or the other, I'd go with the throttle body first.
