not sure how long you can have your truck down ,but you can send your to Fastman and get it turned around in a few days .....you just have to call and ask what kind of turn around he has

Cdnoilram- thank you for the informative post! It makes me feel a little better about my $349 investment.
You name 'Moe's' and 'Fastman' ported TBs by name; what say you about your sponsor's PTB offerings, 'Bully's', to be fair? Is there a difference in their approach?

At the time of writing, Bully's was only just getting started and they didn't have a ported TB out yet. As for my opinion, all I can say is that I won't run a ported TB on my truck unless I knew that the backside of the butterfly had only been ported to match the inner diameter of my intake manifold, allowing it to maintain any velocity increase associated with a more gradual necking down from intake tube's inner diameter.

Okay, that's great, so what about Bully's TB's?

I had talked to the gents at Bully's about their profile during their development, but I don't know what the end result was, so I can't say. I haven't had the opportunity to inspect one of their profiles. If someone could vernier the rear portion of one of their TBs and the inner diameter of the intake manifold you'll know what my answer would be.

So I've read through this whole thread. Very informative. Thanks CdnoilRAM. I've also read as many other threads as I could find. Grubrunners review on Bully Performance's new TB was a great read as well. Grubrunner went through a very detailed "break-in" schedule after his install. Is this common to all TB's post install? Does anyone else have any feedback on Bully's TB? Cheers to all!

Wow, that was a big one.. Thanks for the info (and science) on how the TBs work.. Wondering how it would work buying a big 87 in perpetration for other mods I plan to do down the road (headers)?

I was thinking the same thing. But might just hold off until the mods are done.

Magnaflow 16869
S&B CAI
ARH Headers

I dont think there would be much sense in getting a bigger TB until they are done, especially if I want to lift it and put 35's on there. Need the TQ in the low end to turn the tires.

I have a 2014 with minor mods (cat-back, CAI, Trinity).

Q: What is the OEM TB size?

Q: What is the best aftermarket or ported TB and what size would be ideal?

Q: Is the investment worthwhile (i.e. are gains noticeable, improvement in MPG, drivability, etc.)?

Thanks!
