Howzit and Aloha!
I was wondering, since I put a 52 throttle body on my car last night (Mahalo to a buddy of mine here in Hawaii) what kind of gains should I expect to get?
I never ran with it at the track obviously, in fact, I havent even driven it yet, bout time I installed it, it was around 11:15 p.m, to late to do some testing.
I have done the usual air intake and exaust mod's like, cut air filter thing, ported plenum, intake manifold, saimiesed runner's, 1.6 rollers, gutted all the cat's with no mufflers on the car, changed to 3.07 rear end from the 2.59, relocated air temp sensor, smog pump removal, Ed wright custom race chip, programed the fans to turn on at 160* with a 160 thermal stat, and now the 52 mil throttle body... hhmmmm..... I think that just about does it for the mod's.
So once agin I ask, what kind of gains should I be expecting with the edition of the throttle body?
I have a '91 L-98 vette.

your potential gains if any will depend on how badly the stock 48mm throttle body was restricting the engines airflow before the swap,it the TPI INTAKE and CYLINDER HEADS NOT the throttle body thats the big resrtiction take the time to read the links
