Fastman Throttle Body Installed
 
Finally, days off.

First job this morning was to installed my new throttle body.

Dan did an awesome job, props to him.

You can definitely tell the difference when you stand them side by side.

Haven't got a chance to run her good yet, but am looking forward to it.

Yeah I did,

I did my research and that and bigger is not always better. Unless you got ported heads, cams, boost or crap no use spending the money on the oversize bore.

Right off dans site:
HEMI TB SIZING RECOMMENDS:
My Standard Modified Hemi TB is an impressive improvement over the factory Hemi TB. It is absolutley perfect for most applications. This TB covers everything from bone stock through the typical bolton additions like aftermarket Air Intakes, Exhausts, and Programmers. My Standard Modded Hemi TB is an excellent value and will improve your performance nicely.

I do offer the bigger 84mm Hemi TB. It is meant for built motors of the next level which require more cfm than my Standard Modded Hemi TB can deliver. This means Ported Heads, Cams, Stroker Motors, and Boosted Applications.

While the "Bigger is Better Theory" is always an evil temptation proper TB sizing does not work this way. All you need to do is match your motors air requirements. Going bigger than necessary is not going to give you anything extra. Follow my recommends and get a good result.

allows more/smother/better air flow.
When you compare them side by side its a big difference. Read online on different forumz also, makes the trucks more peppy I heard.

So will have to see tomorrow or something
