Red face 60mm throttle body on a 2.5L?

Yeah, yeah, yeah I know it sounds crazy but before you go to something else just read. I have been doing lots of research and I have read many a article and have seen several builds of the 2.5L wrangler Tj and have magicaly seen people pull 80+ horsepower of of the mighty little 4 cylinder. My question is that after I bore out my plenum to accept the 60mm throttle body from a 4.0L can I buy intake kits for the 4.0L instead of the 2.5 due to having the different throttle body? I know it sounds stupid to all those out there who do not own the 2.5 or know hhow impossible it is to pull anymore hp than it already has, but if I had the cash to get the 4.7L stroker engine from Quadratec.com I would but working 2 jobs and going to college I just cant do that. Even a clean 4.0L would be nice along with all the parts to keep it a manuel.
