I'm trying to suss out a throttlebody from the states to go with
an Edelbrock EFi manifold I bought over there.

Lots of the yanks don't like international shipping huh, so I've got a mate
over there whos going to punt it onto me. :wink:

question is.. I can get a 65mm Mustang one for $50US or a 70mm
aftermarket one for $120US

is the extra 5mm really worth that much more in performance?

I would be interested in the 70, and can sell/swap for a 65 that has already been modded to suit an E series and is currently on an Edelbrock manifold

Sorry thought you already had the 70mm, was willing to swap you a 65 for it, but now i have read it again, i see you just want to know which one to get.
