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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
