BBK 90mm throttle body

Anyone purchase/install the new 90m BBK throttle body yet with a NA engine? Seriously looking into it being my next investment. Curious to know how much a tune would improve throttle response, hp, and tq.

Yeas tb really doesn't do a lot probably would go and get other things first maybe make this one of the last things you pick up but don't get me wrong you will see a gain especially because you have it car tuned you will see even more gain if you get it retune after long tube and throttle body

LT's over tb, you'll get a lot more, it's been proven that even ported stock intakes show negligible gains even with a tb

What gears you running? You could go up to 3.73s or 4.10s installed for about the same price as a TB. Also not too far from the price of a 1 piece aluminum driveshaft. From everything I've read gains with a TB are negligible, but then again 50% of the time I'm wrong about 30% of what I say.

Reduce rotating mass (-20 lbs) quicker acceleration, lighter, stronger.

Ha LOL! Modding is an expensive mistress. Suspension was going to be my next rec, but it looked like you were wanting to add/free up power. I'd do LTs in an instant but I'm in Cali and don't want to fight smog every other year... Not after seeing what's involved with upgrading the headers. There should be a sticker on your diff housing that shows the gears installed. You can find tons of threads on gears, but they make an undeniable difference in acceleration and "quickness" LOL!

Nope, none of it does, the your car will ride on rails and you should expect the car to be more "revvy" with a one piece aluminum DS

Got the 90 mm TB on my 2012 GT (air aid, Hypertech on premium fuel, Borla attack too).

The new TB is great, smooth, and gave me a small gaz mileage improvement.

And I am not paid to type this !
