I believe the "upgrade" is a slightly larger two bore throttle body...

It will give a slight performance increase, but not like back in the day when you put a big four barrel carb in place of a little two barrel carb.

It'll help, it's just not going to be a huge gain. Headwork is the best mod you could ever do usually. Smaller/simpler mods would be a good intake, headers, cam...

If I were you, I'd have some porting done, a valve job (maybe bigger valves) maybe up the compression (I assume it's fairly low), and put a cam in it with new valvetrain. If you know a machinist you can probably have everything done for like $1,000-$1,500. Sounds like a lot but if you know someone you can maybe get it all done cheaper. Do the labor yourself, it's not so hard. That money will go WAY farther performance wise than buying a TB for a few hundred, CAI for a few hundred, etc...

Yes, a 4V style throttle body is available. It would require an intake manifold change as well. You're talking serious airflow, so unless you're making hardware mods to the engine as well, it's a waste of money. Average street mods need no more than an upgraded 2V style throttle body.
