Default Moe's 87mm Throttle Body

Installed 87mm Tb from Moe's on my 05 Ram and can't believe the difference it made. Revs are crisp and instantaneous. Changed it's attitude completely. Old TB was kept clean so that was not a factor in the improvement I felt. Granted I already had Vararam, LT headers, dyno tune, etc, etc and this TB was just the cherry on top, but what a cherry. Highly recommend this mod, especially if you already have tune and headers.

So Im planning on a cat back and maybe a tuner in the near future so an 85mm ported looks like what I need. What would the drawbacks of an 87mm be for now if I were planning atleast headers down the road? Were talkin $50-75 more now instead of buying two TBs.

Also, Im not racing the truck, just looking for better performance, I do tow with the truck pretty regular so low end torque is definitely a plus for me. So would the 85mm be the better choice even if i did add headers later? Thanks

Honestly, to the avg person you will not truly notice the difference form an 85mm to 87mm.
Someone who is VERY inclined to this stuff will notice, but even to them it will be slight.
Where you will notice is if you were to drag your truck and it meant that 1/10 of a time
Forcing more air into your ram (via the 87mm) and not having the proper way to get it out quicker (headers, FI) will be your bottle neck.
But again, its not noticeable to the avg person or member here.

OK, have read thread from start to finish and still can't figure it out.
I have a 2013 Express Reg Cab SWB with Hemi and 3:55 gears. I put the Magnaflow 22" on and deleted the resonators. Have a K&N filter. Don't plan on anymore add ons.

I don't take it to track. I do tow a bass boat.

Now, what TB do I need and will it help gas milage and torque? Low end sucks!!
Also what brand do I need?

the only throttle body for the 2013's are the 87mm, no one is currently making an 85mm flavor for the 2013's as they showed little to no gain, we have 2013's ready to ship if you are interested let me know I would be more than happy to get on on its way to you this upcoming week, check it out http://bullysperformance.com/bullys-...-hemi-268.html, and if you purchase a hypertech interceptor/Bully Dog Hemi+/or Diablo Sport trinity t1000 we will take another $20 off of the price (note DiabloSport has not released support for the 2013's yet but it should be coming up right around the corner), we will also discount $20 if you purchase a Vararam Air grabber.

Thanks
Jeremiah

The low end sucks due to Ram's programming. A throttle body will do nothing to fix what you are complaining about, trust me I hate the tq. management just as much. A stall convertor blows by all that programming. That will give you the best bang for the buck for making these trucks come off the line like they actually have a 400 hp set of testes.

This is pretty good feedback ^^^
Our truck lose so much. About 25% of its power....the stall/TQ convertor will bring all that power loss back, making it feel like you added horses when in fact you did not.
Highly recommended.

If you need pricing on one, let me know. We deal with Edge which is a pretty reputable and trusted brand

how does the stall t-converter work for everyday driving. does it jerk on take off or is it smooth. does it have to have extra rpm before moving?? I'm afraid I don't understand just how this works.
