For the money no, plus stock size is 80mm, if you did upgrade I'd go with the accufab 84.5 or BBK 85 mm, someone makes a 90 mm also, don't remember who off the top of my head.

But even with one of those you wouldn't see gains of more than 5hp, and for a minimum of $400, not worth it in my book

I can get one for 100 used so do you think I should get it or just save for another mod?

For $100 I'm still not sure, that 2mm is so negligible, I've seen gains of 5hp from 85mm tb's. maybe it'll look cool though?

Yea maybe it'll help throttle response too, but a good tune will do the same thing
