Default 85mm Throttle Body

For those of you who made the upgrade to the 85mm TB, which did you go with and what do you think of the results???

The Fastman?
Moe's Performance?
BBK?

Maybe there are others???

Throw some info at me guys!

Thanks

this is a mod I am looking at as well. Only question is if it will work with my 77 series K&N air intake.

not that I know of. you'll prob only see a couple of hp b/c it's meant to be a supporting mod. the stock 80mm t/b isn't exactly a "restriction" at our power level but as you add a CAI, exhaust, cam, headers, programmer, y-pipe, etc....all the mods help.

now if you are going the forced induction route (via a positive displacement blower), you want as little restriction as possible up stream of the blower.

here's a good read. http://www.accufabracing.com/article%203.htm
