For the EL V8's, what were the TB sizes available and fitted on the factory line?
60

Bigger?

Thank you. I was thinking that 65 was the biggest but was not sure.

You can fit 70mm TB's but the manifold opening is around 65mm so unless you port the opening you won't get any more airflow. Plus 70mm TB give less throttle response, 65mm seem to be the best pick unless you have a wild engine.
