I have a standard ba xr8 with pacemaker extractors and a 2 1/2 exhaust and I need to replace my throttle body just wondering if its worth spending a little more and getting the 80mm or just replace with a standard, what can I expect?

Thanks

Do you plan to do other mods to the engine?

Don't bother then. You'll lose so much torque by going to an 80mm TB.

What setup would I need to get the best out of a 80mm?

If it had a blower, would be perfect lol

But if it were NA you'd need the whole works and jerks to make it worth the amount of torque you'll lose from it.
