Best Throttle Body?

So I have been looking at various aftermarket throttle bodies and was wondering which was the BEST? I know that CFM sells a 67mm one, and I have heard a lot of good things, but how about the ford racing one? It is 70mm. It says it is for a 2.0 litre zx3, but would it work on the svt? Attached a link to the one I will get if it fits!

says it's designed to be used w/that race intake mani. I havent seen anyone use that on a factory intake mani. I'd stick w/whats proven, and thats the 67. that's the route I'll be going with.

Unless you plan going going FI, you don't need it. Stick with either the 65 or 67mm TB.

Is anyone running that TB and IM combo from ford racing? How beneficial would it be on a NA svt?

Just bore out your own stock one. $300 to me is not worth the cost of an aftermarket TB for the little to no benefits that you get out of it.
