    the larger throttle body will help, but as for the manifold you want something with a large open plenum and short straight runners, in boosted applications anyways. someone please correct me if im wrong.

    the edlebrock manifold is better for boost... you wasted your money on the skunk manifold.. same damn thing as the type r manifold

    The skunk2 manifold has the same design as the ITR with a slight bit more flow. Nothing dramatic, but its easier to get a skunk2 than an ITR. The tb will help, but with that kind of boost I would look into a custom sheet metal application. Gary Gardella's fabricator's made me mine 4 years ago and it was awesome for the price.

    If the skunk2 manifold flows any better I would throw that on. a little performance is better than stock. plus that 70mm throttle body will probably help

    the skunk2 was modded after the ITR, so its gains will probably be nill.

    From my experience sheet metal intakes cause a terrible idle problem at least the one my friend used on his h22.
