been told there is no gain using a bigger throttle body, unless you have a s**t of mods done

Like bry said it comes down to the mods you have done...what size is your manifold inlet?...if its smaller than the tb you would have to port match it at the very least...but unless you have the heads/cam/tune etc you would probably find you had less throttle response

Dont worry about the learning curve....I know what you mean...carbies seemed soooo easy lol

Got one to go with the spare BBM I got (for free) :D

Put it on it's a negligible gain having said that If you've got a massive cam and extensive headwork etc then it'd probably come into its own.
