    I havent picked up mine yet, but I'm getting the S3 which is suppose to be good for the street, I believe the S2 is better for the track and the S1 is a cheaper alternative to the others.

    You will see minimal gains, if any, from a 80mm over a ported 75. Just get a ported and polished stocker- much cheaper. (and free if you do it yourself) The BBK and FAST are expensive.

    No, an 85mm will gain you absolutely nothing over a ported stock 75mm or a 80mm. The opening in the manifold is only 78mm, so a TB that is any bigger than that is overkill - and a waste.

    still, when you factor in the cost, i would only get a shaner or do it yourself. You are only messing around with a few hp either way, not worth the big $ for a new tb.

    just port it yourself... use a dremel and some sandpaper, then get some like 600 or 1000 grit wet-or-dry and wet sand it smooth...

    he seems hell bent on wasting hundreds on an aftermarket tb. might as well stop trying to convince him otherwise and let him do what he wants.
