    Best throttle body to use??

    Ok, lets make the scenario that I have an LS6 intake manifold, which I do not yet, but thats what I am aiming to get, because its a little more cost effective for me right now, but what throttle body should I go with? Or, is it just that much better to go ahead and try and find a FAST manifold and throttle body??

    I have 233-239 cam and patriot stage 2 heads, with basic bolt ons on a 98 SS.

    i would just polish and port your stock throttle body, i have seen many project ls1's putting out over 600 hp using the stock throttle body (just polishing and porting it) my local fbody specialist charges 250 for this

    I just polished and ported my stock one and worked great. In the long run you would gain more with the FAST setup, but you said cost effective and I don't think there is even a comparison between a FAST setup and LS6 cost wise. There are tons of used LS6 intakes out there for cheap since every LS1 car had the LS6 after the 2k year, but the FAST TB and intake manifold is about $1,000 for the set.
