Question Should I add a bigger TB?

The car has a 70mm TB on right now. Should I add a larger TB when I put the tubo on (single T76) or will it not net me anything worth the money?

Your 70 should be fine. Hell, my stocker doesn't seem to be a restriction at my hp levels.

Yeah, we went from a 75mm to a 70mm to a 65mm and so no difference at all in power levels on one of our old turdbo cars. Did gain a little bit of driveability with the smaller TB though.

I'm running 2.5" out of each turbo merging into a 3" that goes to the intercooler. The out of the cooler is also 3"…all of which is going into the stock throttle body.
