Would love some recommendations for a larger throttle body for the 2014 GC SRT. I think I read the 14 has a different plug then a 13, or something like that...

You've done things to your SRT right? If you haven't yet - a larger tb won't do anything for you. If you've added a CAI for example, an 87mm Fastman is your best bet. If you're adding headers as well - then hell yes grab one!

If you're still stock as in, no mods yet, changing your tb won't do much of anything other than lighten your wallet.

Thanks! Yes, I do have a few mods. Borla Attak, Diablo tune and Injen CAI. Plus I am going to pick a jet 180 thermostat. If Procharger gets a kit together that's next as well.

the 2012 has a different tb from the 13-14...so use caution and get the right TB. I have the 87mm tb and feel it completes the mods I have at present.

I don't seen anything on Fastman's website that says 87mm TB. I see a $150 version (85mm to 81mm bore) and a $225 version (85mm to 84mm bore).
I assume you have the $225 version?

Looks like Modern Muscle makes a 87mm? Looks like you have had both, which do you prefer?

Go with Fastman. I asked Dan if he has 87mm. He doesn't. This is what he has for the 14
I just ordered that one from Dan before Christmas. Hoping to get it sometime this week. I had his TB on my 2012 with ARH headers setup. Keeping my 2014 simple so far with Injen CAI, tune and TB.

After 3 weeks of waiting for my tb Dan never shipped it. Called and said it would get out. Told him to cancel. He insisted on shipping it today. I canceled it. Terrible CS!! Happened to me on the first one I bought also.

It took almost 3 weeks for me to get mine from him. But it was worth the wait. He does a beautiful job. I do agree his customer service skills do not leave much to be desired but you do have to remember he is a one man show. Trust me it is worth the wait. His work is fantastic.

It's worth it! Ordered mine before Christmas and got it in about 3 weeks. Now pulling consistent 3.9 to 4.1 0 to 60 runs where before it was between 4.2 to 4.4 in similar conditions. I also have the Injen CAI and the Trinity 93 tune loaded. I did notice with the bigger TB it reduced some of the ST knock I was seeing at higher RPMs. I think it's a good option if you have tune, CAI, headers, etc. I had the ARH complete headers and catback on my 2012. Kept getting slow O2 codes etc so I'm leaving the 2014 exhaust alone for now.

Very easy....just loosen the intake hose that connects to the tb....unbolt tb and bolt new one in. Connect intake hose...all.done.
