A big bore throttle body theoretical allows more air to flow into the engine therefore making more power I dont know anyone who has put one on our cars yet so I dont particualry know what the difference would be!

The main reason for my purchasing it was I'm also porting the SC and the head so the flow #'s should be pretty good. In other words it will assist other parts in making more power.

I see. So, two of them ganged together = twice the power?

I don't expect to see big gains on a FI setup but am curious, especially about the ported blower.
