    unless you have a really built motor or you're going turbo, imo 70mm is a bit tooo big. ITR 62mm or 64mm is plently enough.

    If you do decide to get it, inlinefour.com have 70mm throttle bodies at a much lower cost, and I had pretty good experiences with them.

    Throttle bodies are one of those mods where it only adds a slight bit if power. But combined with things such as a well engineered cold air system, head work, and headers, it will create a signicant power increase. The skunk2 price may not be worth it, and sounds way to big, but an upgraded throttle body is definately worth it.
