A TRUE 83mm without the 'bottleneck' would be better.

So which TB would be "True" without the bottleneck? Moe's? BBK? Or another brand?

They will all have a bottleneck, but the TRUE TBs have a more gradual taper and the butterfly valve is the size of the advertized diameter. Now, I don't know anyone that makes an 83mm TB, the smallest I have seen is the 84mm from fastman, but if anyone does find ones that I didn't mention let me know, I would love to find more sources.

So after we put the new throttle body do we have to reset anything?
