Sell me on this mod. At almost $400 is this really worth the money? Go.

i really like my fastman tb on my 4.7 dakota. it pepped up the truck and gave me 2mpg towing. it's cheaper than 400.

I think it depends on what performance mods you have done. Are you a stock truck with maybe just an intake and muffler? Then no, you don't really need it. Do you have LT headers, a better flowing exhaust an intake and a custom tune, maybe even more? Then a throttle body will definitely help you out.

Also, I would jump on Arth's TB if you want to get it. You wont find a price like that again.

I have the Vararam Air Grabber and a Magnaflow muffler. So I am not going to see any difference from stock with a 87mm throttle body?

You wont get its full potential. You may or may not feel an increase in the old butt dyno.

In all seriousness though I personally felt like I have better throttle response. Also, when I had to put the stock TB back on, it seems like the truck isn't able to hold MDS as long with the stock one.

Overall though I feel this is just a supporting mod. You didn't feel much with the intake.. maybe a little. You didn't feel much with the exhaust. Tuner might be a bit more since we are changing how the truck runs. The TB falls into the same.. it's just another supporting mod.

To be blunt.. no its not worth $400. But if u can find a deal on one (like Arth's) I would pick it up for sure. Better throttle response and addes some pep for sure, but overall I feel it benefits most when combined with other kods like CAI and tuner and such.
