actually the throttle body doesnt give you any performance gains,just better throttle responce,but if your gonna go nos,sc or turboed it will help.other then that you wont gain enough to even show on a dyno.and most kits like powerworks comes with a upgrade throttle body anyways.and you will gain something on a full exhaust(header back) but a cat alone wont produce much.youll get more out of a good tune and a cai,,but start somewhere and follow thru,,full exhaust or full intake,,dont just add a part to this and add a part to that,, sit down look at what direction your really going for.street performance,track,daily spirited,drag. research then buy.ive seen a lot of guys just start buying and had bought a lot of stuff they didnt need or couldnt use in the direction they were going.and theres a lot of guys on here can take you in the direction you want with a lot of great info from na to fi .
