Re: Throttle body

you cannot fully utilize a larger tb without upgrading the fuel system and giving it a good tune. this is because the motor will draw in more air, but will not supply more fuel making the car run a little lean. if you get a larger throttle body you will also have to have your im port matched.

Re: Throttle body

Straight up the answer is no. A bigger Tb on it's own will never make more power, only increase throttle response. And I've seen people bolt on an S2 intake manifold with no other significant mods and LOSE power. An S2 intake manifold is only required when you start to get really serious.
