Go to the first thread in this section. Scroll down to the bottom to the complete how to list. Then scroll down to engine and powertrain and its the fourth one from the bottom. Its pretty easy though.

I don't know Tom...the Butt Dyno says otherwise...LOL

No gains, but it did afford me a chance to clean my TB really well!

Somewhat correct yes , stock the TB does not do muct at all mostly in throttle responce where the SVT could really use the help , as you start adding more mods the TB does start to show some help

The ported TB that I tested showed nothing anywhere

Everyone needs to keep in mind that the flap is still the same size when your finished porting , so your actually not making the TB bigger by porting it

Butt dynos shouldnt be used for testing this has been proven 1,000.000.000 times over

performance wise, even if its just a little bit. would getting a aftermarket 67mm throttle body give better gains and performance (if only a bit?)

and is that the biggest?

I also heard that port matching it is even better!

let me know guys! I'm getting one soon!

70 mm is the biggest but that is for FI motors. 67 mm is the best to buy for a non FI motor. CFM has a good one. i just dont have the funds to get a new one yet. and i dont think im goin to waste the time porting mine
