    If I had to chose a throttle body, it would be the itr tb from spoon, but that's with some bigger cams, larger plenum IM, head work and a good flowing exhaust system...

    you should be careful, for a throttle body too large will work against you.

    Just replace the tps, unless you plan on portmatching the IM, and on an ls, it's kind of pointless unless you plan on extrude honing or P&Ping the IM, the head, installing I/H/E. Save yourself the money, the TB should be the last thing you spend money on. Wait, neon lights should be the last thing you spend your money on. ;)

    if you want a bigger TB get your stock one bored out. aftermarket TB's are a rip off.

    that is going to be a little too large, I would suggest getting your current one overbored 4mm
