Are any base owners having their throttle body's bored out to compliment their intake? Seems like a good combination since you're losing resistance to flow when you install a good aftermarket intake and the throttle body is the next piece of equipment in-line. Seems like the first bottleneck would be at the TB after tossing the stock intake.
Anyway, I'm thinking I'll have Kingmotorsports bore out my throttle body before installing CAI.

kings cost about 150 i think to get it bored. but i dont know of its efficiency on the base. for type-s's, if u have a bored TB, u would need to compliment that with the type-R intake manifold. i'ma make a post about this in N/A forum and see how the n/a experts respond.

i forgot to mention. bored TB will NOT be very useful for the base unless u have aftermarket cams. it might yield some HP but nothing big. all that air going in but it will bottleneck somewhere. still gona confirm this in the n/a.
