Default Should I upgrade throttle body with intake manifold?

I noticed skunk2 has a nice intake manifold, but for double the price I could get it with a skunk2 throttle body.

Would it defeat the purpose of buying the manifold without the new throttle body? Does the new throttle body offer better "breathing"?

help lol

the new throttle body is bigger which will increase throttle response and how much air you let into the engine. i would save myself 200 bucks and find either a h22, f22, b18, b16a2 or b18c5 throttle body which are way bigger than the d-series between a 60-62mm

I'm not going to get this for my d16, I will do a swap probably towards the end of this year for the B16A2 and skunk2 offers a throttle body for that engine. Is stock b16 body the same as skunk, or is it larger like it is for my d16?
