Default skunk2 intake and tthrottle body

wonder if u guys could give me any help im looking to buy a skunk2 pro seires intake manifold and skunk2 70mm throttle body just wanted to know if i will gain much power out this combination on stock internals and are there any serious down falls with this setup and do i need any other special parts for example bolts, nuts or gaskets that dont come with these parts, they are to fit a b16a2 engine.
thanks guys any help would be appreciated

I think the skunk 2 IM sucks. And 70mm is too big.

werd 70mm iw way to big unless you really need to flow that kinda amounts of air. as for the skunk 2 mani, i loved mine. although the manifold did make it seem like i lost bottom end power but gaining in the higher rev range. i bought mine used for $100 and i wouldnt pay full proce for them. get the edelbrock it seems to fair better.

70mm seems to big, but then im almost positive the sk2 b16 mani is 68mm which is not that far off 70mm. it is fully tested and is that big for a reason. So if your going that route get a 68mm t/b so that the two are port matched.
To be honest If your going to be spending that much I would go with stage 2 cams and valvetrain first as you will notice those gains much more.
I have to ask myself if all this hate for sk2 mani's comes from one member having a defective product and then everybody else jumping on the bandwagon without ever installing/using this product.
Yes I know first hand there can be issues, and yes the edelbrock unit may be better, but in all honesty I have been very happy with my one.

It's not designed for a 68mm throttle body. http://www.skunk2.com/Merchant2/merc...tegory_Code=IN

It says here it comes as is @ 64mm, and states "Factory throttle body may be reused," which are 60mm for B16s. So idk.
