Default quick intake manifold and throttle body questions

On ebay I found a skunk2 intake manifold and blox 68mm throttle body for $375 brand new. Or theres a skunk2 intake manifold and skunk2 throttle body for $494 brand new.

is blox a good brand for a throttle body? Also it says 70mm, 72mm, and 74mm throttle bodies are available upon request. Whats the difference between the different size throttle bodies and which one should I get?

from what i have read/heard that blox is just as good as skunk 2 just doesn't have that extra $100 for the name on it. look at their intake manifolds also imo.

u should gain a little bit of horse power and a lot more air to come into ur engine. Are u planning on turboing ur car? cause if u do this will help out a lot. Because this summer I will be buying a Magnus IM and some TB to throw on to my car and holy Hell Batman I should see a differance with A/F.

Opps sorry got a little carried away.

mmmmmm... 10hp on a n/a motor?

Throw an aggressive cam on there to take advantage of the extra air your engine will be getting and you'll see pretty good gains.
