I need to know if it is worth to upgrade the throttle body? I read it is good for 8 to 10 hp. iIf it is should I go to a 62 or 65.
Thank You for help.

I too wanted to do the upgrade but quite a few advised against it as it may be a waste of money. They suggest using the money for other stuff like pulleys etc.

I have the BBK 65mm didn't notice a differance. Perhaps when I finish the ram air it will help. So far a $329.99 waste of my money. I am happy with their headers, and under pulley kits though.

Let me say this very plainly.... DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! I upgraded mine and it was the one part that did absolutely NOTHING for the car. Spend your money elsewhere. JMHO! ;) :D

I agree with Big Daddy. Our twin 57 TB can flow a serious amount of air before it becomes a restriction. I'm talking 650ish rwhp before you'll need to upgrade this piece.

only time you would get any kind of gain worth anything is if you are running boost. better off with gears or exhaust.
