Why don't you just bore out your throttle body? I charge $200CDN to do it if your interested. I can bore it out as large as you want.

Internal diammeter is increase and larger butterfly plates are installed.

It would cost 2-3 times to buy another throttle body. No core change if you give me yours. I can send you another M50 TB so you can get it right away.

As for performance, it's really not noticeable at all. Maybe you gain 2-3HP at 6000RPM. It helps if you have an intake and chip.
