Default Edelbrock TB and IM

hey guys...i'm looking into both the TB and IM from Edelbrock...what performance gains would i be expecting from this product? also is it a good idea to upgrade these two products on my car for getting the ultimate gain from my H/I/E? I am running with an AEM CAI and i'm waiting on my ApexiWS2 and I have a Megan Header that i'm waiting to install with my exhaust, so i just thought why not do both the TB and IM at the same time...what do you guys think? Anyone running with Edelbrock TB and IM? thanks!

What engine is this on? As for the TB how big are you going, cause if you go too big it can hurt. <- wow that sounds bad.

tb and im from edelbrock, you can never go wrong with that. i would say if you plan on going FI in the future then these are great buys.

clarification on FI? still pickin up on the terms! I'm not too sure which TB size i should go with...stock is i believe 56mm on my engine...how big can i go to ensure that my AEM CAI will still fit? or does that even apply?

FI = Forced Induction (turbo)
TB = Throttle Body
IM = Intake Manifold

TB bore depends on what you plan to do in the future (ie turbo, na)

what engine do you have in your car? also if you plan on turbo, you might just wanna send that header back cause you can't use a header with a turbo.

it's a d16y8...i'd like to push around 200hp with everything done to it...i think that'd be respectable...i didn't know you couldn't run a header with a turbo...does the turbo kit come with one? or how does that work?

You can make 200 without the expense of an aftermarketIM/TB.

sounds like someone needs to use the search button and research.
