Default Too Lean??

All of my mods should be in my signature, i am thinking about getting a throttle body and plenum, would that make my care run too lean? I dont have any fuel mods and have almost every air mod there is, also I have a tuner but not sure how to do a custom tune to make it run more rich. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You should be fine. You will probably want to get a tune done just to add some fuel in certain areas but you will be fine.

Both of you are fine. The factory tune will make the proper adjustments if you are running lean or rich. Just disconnect your battery when you install the TB/Plenum so that your computer can relearn the new fuel trims with your new found air.
