I would say you pretty well have your bases covered with your current mods, a larger throttle body will help but it wouldn't hurt to get some professional advice being you are going the Supercharger route. One other additional thing you might want to look into is having Anti spin (LSD) installed if you don't have it already. IMO putting all that power on one wheel with an open ended rear is not a good thing.

I'd still like to see some proof that a larger TB is beneficial. The best anyone's seem to have said about it is that it gave them better sound. That ain't really much bang for the buck, IMO. I've thought about getting one for my car but it just doesn't seem to be smart money.

Josh at HHP claimed there is a 10 HP gain with the Arrington 85 mm throttle body along with the Magnuson Supercharger. Its not earth shaddering but its something.

AFAIK, you don't "need" anything for the SC. They are all designed to be used with a stock engine. If you're concerned with future mods, I'd check with what SC provides the best capability for expansion. IMHO, tht'd b a KB or a centrifigal. Things that add breathability, like CAI, headers and exhaust you already have. Definately a custom dyno tune should be on your short list.

I guess that's something! Just a matter of deciding if it's worth the cash. :smileup:

i guess what it all boils down to is how much HP are you looking for? you can obtain 500 HP with an 8lb magnacharger... anything after that, my understanding, you will most likely be going to the "next level" and things get even more expensive... so if you are comfortable with 500 HP, there really isn't any reason to spend extra money on things for little gains here and there... you are already at the finish line of your current engine and drive train limitations... save your money on the throttle body... JMO...
