I'm kindof on a limited budget right now but still would like to add at least one more mod to my truck. If I had to choose between a new 50mm Throttle Body from F&B or new JBA Headers, which route should I go?

Thanks,

~Mike~

Will the TB make a difference at low rpm?

I just read on the Flowmetrics website about the TB not being for use on highways...I'm not a drag racer thats gonna be taking my truck to the track to race I'm just a city driver. Is putting it on gonna cause problems?

Bruce (Flometrics) hasn't updated that site in almost a year. They work very well on the highway and, on the 50mm vs. 52mm comparison on his site), they've since found that the 52mm works better than the 50mm on the 5.9L's.

I'm sure the 52mm would be perfect for the guys that race and supercharge their trucks but I think I'll stick w/ the 50mm TB...it should still show noticable increases over the stock 48mm though right?

Bernd, what kind of gain would be typical of installing the 52mm on my 5.9? Here is what I have so far:
Jet Stage I
K&N FIPK II
Accel Supercoil
MSD 6A with 8.5 super conductor wires
Autolite 3923's with Borg cap and rotor

Will the 52mm TB help me much??? What would you do next? Keep in mind I am still a novice...

Josh
