Default Throttle Body Size

I have an 88 Notch, and I am working on the throttle body. I am replacing it very soon, I plan on getting some Ford Racing Heads, BBK SSI, and I have a BBK cold air and a BBK MAF on it right now. I was wanting some input on the size of throttle body I should get knowing I am planning on improving further. I want to get a bigger one but I don't want to go to big. I'm thinking 80 but that sounds too big because I've been reading and everyone is saying 75 is fine, but I don't want to get too small and known I could've gone bigger.

Thanks

a 65 is more than you need right now

in fact a 65 is good til you get closer to 500hp

Put the SSI down, back away. Go for what is behind door number 2.

Bob makes a very valid point! Your not gonna get into changing velocity and pressure enough to really worry or need more than a 65.
