    ok let me hear what you guys think. i have a 2001 USDM ITR in a del sol and was wondering if it would be better to upgrade to an edelbrock throttle body design for an ITR or keep it stock. They both are 65mm but the edelbrock is a little thicker at the top and heavier. Would it even make a difference, or stock is the way to go.

    If they are both 65mm, why upgrade? Honda is the best name to put on a honda car. Keep the stock.

    well i guess the itr throttle is 62mm vs. the edelbrock 65mm. So edelbrock is better since it is bigger true?

    it won't hurt going to a 65mm, but i wouldn't suggest going any larger than that until you have some other cams etc. you'd probably see better gains spending th money elsewhere... do you have any engine management systems?
