Without a 3" collector on the header, a 3" wont make a big difference, flow is only as good as biggest bottleneck.

Mike, what can you adjust in the tune to make the Tb work better? I've noticed 75% to wot car pulls harder, more touchy throttle...worthwhile mods for the price

I'm sure a tune wouldn't hurt, but I didn't tune mine and it runs just fine.

Foci-philes:

Finally got around to installing the new throttlebody today and what a very pleasant surprise: it is truly a plug-and-play mod and it crisps up the throttle response very nicely. If you're on the fence, hop off and do this mod. It is inexpensive and the throttle response is noticeable even without a tune. (I do have Tom's basic tune but I need to datalog and have him work his magic.)

Nice mod!
