Using the chart is simple. If peak power is higher than the rpm in the 1.2 “/Hg column, or peak torque is higher than the rpm in the 0.8”/Hg column, then you should really consider an upgrade. If peak power is higher than the rpm in the 0.8”/Hg column, or your shift point is is higher than the rpm in the 1.2”.Hg, an upgrade can be of benefit in an “max-effort” application, but isn’t absolutely necessary. I even included accompanying power outputs, so you can also make a selection based off of expected N/A power.

Throttle Body Selection Chart
-----------80mm ----------85mm ---------90mm
---------0.8-1.2"/Hg ----0.8-1.2"/Hg ----0.8-1.2"/Hg
N/A hp____360-500_______440-580_______510-660

390hp @ 5600rpm
407tq @ 4000rpm

so if you do anything really to the truck for ain in, and air out, you would really benefit from the 85mm tb....right??
