Question Throttle Body for 5.7

Anyone have one on their Jeep? Are they worth it? I see a lot of the SRT8's have aftermarket ones.

Re: Throttle Body for 5.7

theres not to much of a gain alone with them, at least not really independently confirmed. most people do them when they plan on bigger mods, so they can get the extra airflow.

Re: Throttle Body for 5.7

The people I've sold them to, have said nothing but great things. I got 1 left I was going to put on eBay next week, but I'll hook you up instead. PM me.

The Fastman, of course. If you're looking for one to work on a 4.7L I'll inquire.

Re: Throttle Body for 5.7

I sold 4 of these and have heard great things. I can't wait to test it out on the track to get some times.

from what ive seen with the vettes and some other vehicles, is you wont notice a real HP gain, but there will be a slight increase in throttle response..as far as worth it? i would say if your doing some real modding i would do it.

Re: Throttle Body for 5.7

i already talked to Fastman, he can do a core exchange for the 4.7 for sure. I would bet the 5.7 as well.

its about 150 for the work plus shipping. and a core deposit of course.

i got one done in preparation for the 08 intake manifold.
