Bigger throttlebody doesnt give a gain, but I noticed better and touchier throttle response and more pull underload, like going up a steep hill so it was worth it to me.

This is what people forget; its not always about HP/TQ but getting to your Power band faster so you have all your power when you need it.

This will add to your combination and will add to things you have and the other guy/gal might not have in there set up.

You just dont understand how HP/TQ works , it always , always , always about HP and TQ , you cannot in any way get to your " power band " faster with out an increase in HP/TQ

Any increase in HP/TQ you can feel , you cannot feel its faster with out an increase in HP/TQ

ANY increase in being faster is a gain in HP/TQ and is measurable on a dyno , if the dyno doesnt show a gain THERE IS NO GAIN !

Larger TB and this hose WILL NOT add to your combination for gains in HP/TQ any one that doesnt believe that bring your Focus to my Dyno for a free dyno to prove this yet again or got back many years and find the post where all this way thoroughly tested

Google is your friend...

•Larger throttle body allows for more air to pass through, supporting horsepower down the road
•Better finish eliminates restrictions, allowing air to move faster and improve response
•Increasing throttle sensitivity allows smaller movements to be detected, increasing throttle precision and control

New MST intake hose that fits larger throttle bodies

I’ll be willing to come down. I already have the larger throttle body and could get the hose for testing. (Im in VA so it’s not that bad of a drive)

I would love to go and get mine tested, but out of my range. I'll have to get some money together and go to APE (Arkansas Performance Exhaust) to get a dyno done.

Looking forward to the results...

I am looking forward to this. Who ever is doing a run I would request to also have the "TIME" in the results along with the power curves, if that is possible?

LOL , LOL Yes a larger TB can move more air but it doesnt do much good if the larger TB cant move more air into the engine

If the TB was a restriction and going to a larger TB helped that restriction then it would gain HP and TQ but it doesnt

Just because you add a larger this , better flowing that doesnt mean it gains any HP/TQ
