there are many post regarding the trouble of tuning the TB
also there are many threads about how RPMoutlet messed over people

if you do a TB then first you need to have done all of your other N/A mods (CAI, CMCD, Headers, full exhaust, cams, ect)
as in near stock form it won't benefit from the TB much if any and the headache on getting a good TB tune might not be worth it

1. save the TB for last
2. Don't order from RPMoutlet

i have heard a few guys on here say that the GT500 is the only one that they would buy, and some of them have it on their N/A GT.

TB's only play a decent role when you have a FI engine. Otherwise the little gain you might see is not worth the headache or money. And actually the GT500 TB is a F150 TB. Youll still need to have an adaptor to make it fit your GT, but when and if I do one for myself, this would be the route I would take. Its been tested and tried by the factory.

I think the thing that got me was that the inlet tube adapter was $150. Add that to the cost of the TB and I didn't think that it was a reasonable cost for the "advertised" HP gain. IMO

even if you have FI you wont see much gains for it. couple guys are saying a few HP or nothing. Not worth the money

JDM makes this exact kit and has had it for over a year not for 400 total i think....i got the setup for 225 and never had any problems......cant say i felt any real gains either with JUST THAT added to the car....remember that all mods can build on others though, so if you have CMDP, LTs, CAI/Tune....you will probably get some gains with it

GMS (Granatelli) also has a twin 62mm TB. Don't know if this is the same one or not.
