Just electronically tune it. You won't be making that much extra power.

The only way that this would be a benefit, is if you are running a really large cam and need extra air and fuel. Remember that on a single throttle body, members have run figures of up to the 170rwkw, so unless you are pushing those sorts of numbers I can't see the benefit from a performance perspective.

Also not that as this is not a BBM, I would expect a drop in bottom end torque and general driveability.

As to you question, to make the most of the additional air, you would need to add extra fuel, and have the large cam, and worked head, and raised compression to make it work.

Just some food for thought.

Cheers

It shouldn't be hard to connect the two in a staged arrangement, (think mechanical secondary carby)

that would fix the part throttle driveabilty issues.

i've always wanted to see a twin turbo twin throttle body setup.

leaving the butterflies active would still have more effect than taking them out though i would imagine, 50% increase in intake area over 3800.not as effective as standard though of course.

becomes a moot point with forced induction.
