Focus Centrals Intake Manifold

i was going to get focus centrals 65mm throttle body but then i saw their intake manifold, in the picture it seems to have a throttle body on it. i dont kno much about intake manifold but i do know that i am going to do a turbo with in a year and it says i need an intake manifold to break the 170whp mark. so does anyone know if intake manifolds come with a throttle body? and how much horsepower will i get from an intake manifold and what else will i gain from this?
~thanx

i dont think the intake manifold will come with a TB, it might just be in the picture just for show. But email FC to make sure of that, and to make sure that it will work with any turbo kit.

it does not come with the throttle body. if you are going turbo i wouldn't waste ur cash...u will lose more then gain, as for gains...ask them, i have NEVER seen a dyno with one of there manifolds, but it being such a short runner manifold compared to the ford racing, i don't see huge gains.
