08-present 4.7L Fastman TB
Anybody using this? I did a search but didn't see anything on the newer 4.7L. I'm wondering if it's worth the $240 or so. Any feedback appreciated, this would be the next mod after I order the torque converter.

I was emailing with (I believe Dan?) today at fastman, and he's got to be one of the most helpful people out there. He said if I pay to ship him my TB he will modify it and ship it back all for $110.00, and if I schedule it ahead of time he will do it all in one day. So I'd probably be without a truck for a week or so, but this would save me over $100.00. I'll probably do this before I buy the converter, mainly due to funds. I was thinking about modifying the throttle body myself, but for this price I'll be better off letting him do it, and it will be better quality I'm sure...

I've been looking at the Fastman TB as well. Keep us informed!!!

Will do, I decided that what I'm going to do is go to the track and return my truck to stock, so I have a baseline, then make additional passes with one mod added at a time, so I can see how much each helps. I'll send my TB off to fastman to be modified sometime in about a month, then will post back how much it helped. I'll start a build thread of my truck when I do this, so I/others can follow what I am doing. It should help to see how much each mod changes power output. I'm guessing the intake and TB will be a somewhat minor change, and the tuner and torque converter will be huge.

That's a good deal man I'm interested to see how much you gain from that
