Hi, does anyone have feedback on the C&L MAF (80mm) vs. other options (i.e. MAC cold air, etc..)? Also, does it help or hurt to increase the size of my TB? My '01 GT is completely stock today. Thanks for the help!

I'm not to sure but I think that with a bigger TB you will lose a little torque off the botttom but increase HP at the top end.
I am also new at these new cars so I am going to wait and let the magazines do the testing for me and ask around before I do mods.

I am running a WMS Velocity Tube with Pro-M 87mm. The nice thing about this kit is the Pro-M is calibrated for the 90 degree turn that all the cold air kits have.

I tried a MAC cold air kit and lost power and had a rough idle.

A larger throttle body reduces velocity. I believe you lose horsepower and torque unless you go with a supercharger.

Like Joe and Randy said, it's been my understanding that unless you have an application that needs more air intake, putting on a bigger throttle body will move the power band up in the RPM range, causing you to lose low end torque.

heh...I just learned that the other day!

Thanks for the replies! I'm brand new to this habit, and the input helps a lot. I think I'm going to stick with the stock TB for now, and install a C&L next week! Thanks again!
