62mm throttle body

I was thinking about putting one of these on my Jeep. Should I get a whole new one or just have the stock one bored? If a completely new throttle body is the way to go, is one particular brand better or are they all pretty much the same? Do they make enough of a difference to splurge on one or would my hard-earned green be better spent elsewhere? Opinions anyone?

Unless you're a street or quarter-mile dragstreip racer, you won't notice any difference with the bigger throttle body and then it'd be so minor as to be negligible. I was sent one years ago to try and I couldn't detect any difference after installing it.

Spend your money elsewhere. Won't make a bit of difference on a TJ.

Only thing worse is a spacer which accomplishes the same thing with the added bonus of a whistling sound when you mash the skinny pedal.
