I did that and ran it for a while and noticed a difference...than I lucked out and found a 50mm on a ram in the junkyard...

took about a week to get used to the throttle being so touchy...lol Chirping tires and breaking my neck at every start...haha.

So...they work on the cheap, but I will admit that a 50mm makes a pretty big difference.

It was a true 50mm throttle body, 50mm all the way through with 50mm plates.

The stock TB is 50mm at the opening, but, necks down to 47mm right before the plates, so the plates are 47mm.

So...3mm per opening of extra airflow.

It wasn't a stock tb, it was aftermarket of some sort. I luckily just found it on a truck that someone modded and got it for junkyard prices Along with a set of shorty headers and my dad got the aluminum valve covers...haha.

It was already smoothed out, though.

But, there's a guy making them for a lot cheaper than Fastman. He makes a 50mm and a 52mm. He sells them on Ebay and a bunch of forums, I'll tell him to come here. But, like $90 for a 50mm and $140 for a 52mm...plus he makes the plenum plates likes hughes does for $60.
