thanks man, yeah its all in the plan lol red dash lights soon hopefully. hoping to get those lights and get a 50 mm throttle body that is made the same way as a fastman tb but done by a uy on ebay. These mods are manageable on my budget, should be able to get em both for around 120-150 bucks

Wow is that TB for that engine really that small!? It's a bigger engine than my 4.7L and I think my stock TB is over 70mm....I wonder if you could find an even larger TB, it would probably help a lot.

Ok didn't know that.

So your stock throttle body basically has an area of:
2*(24mm*24mm*3.14)=3,617sq mm

The 50mm would be:
2*(25mm*25mm*3.14)=3,925sq mm

The 54mm would be:
2*(27mm*27mm*3.14)=4,578sq mm

My say 72mm 4.7L TB gives:
36mm*36mm*3.14=4,069sq mm

yeah ours are 48 stock down in the barrels with the twin blades, and the TB modders I have talked to (fastman/ebay man) have bother recommended the 50 mm. They suggested anything bigger would only hurt performance at that point unless its a heavily modded engine, stroker/blower, cam, heads, etc.

Looks good man, you said you were trying to put on a new bumper with four lights, I'm gonna do the same to my 01 but I'm gonna get this one from http://www.lmctruck.com/icatalog/de/full.aspx?Page=55 lmc with just the two fog lights. Not sure when I'm gonna get around to doing it but it should look good. My biggest plan is a functional ram air hood. Anyone have one on their 2nd gen?
