Throttle body swap

Question:
When you put a 4.0 TB on a 2.5L, do you use the same sensors that are on the 4.0 TB? Do you have to swap them out? Or just install the 4.0 and go?
Thx for any responses

I used a TB from a 5.9L Dodge on my 01' Laredo 4.7L. It was a plug and play install. Went from 60mm to 70mm. When you get done let us know how you like or don't like it. And I will let you know how mine works.

Jp Magazine tried installing a 4.0L TB onto a 2.5L engine several years ago and noticed no performance gain. In fact, they commented there might have even been a little bit of a loss in performance.

IMO throttle body swaps and trottle body spacers are wasted money.
