Question Throttle Body Question...

I have a 2003 Focus LX. My question is: I'm wanting to upgrade my TB to a 60mm so I can make use of an AEM CAI. However is it possible for me to upgrade to a 65mm?

STOCK the TB is at or around 50mm. Making a big jump to 60mm, not saying its bad. Dont get me wrong Im all down for more throttle response. Just saying not sure of it will fit, you may have frabrication issues.

Yeah I do believe so...but remember if you go CAI your filter will go dirty quick. b/c the placement of where the air filter lays. Though I am not sure if AEM makes an SPI CAI. You could also just get a local shop to make an intake system for you [ie bend piping etc]. Might be cheaper...not sure though never tried it.
