Anyone install a throttle body?

Has any here installed a ported throttle body?
If so, what kind of gains could be expected here at altitude?
Wondering if it's worth it.

I've been wondering the same thing actually, i haven't looked too much into it. What all is involved with doing this? Is it just a purchase and install?

Just changing a throttle body on these cars are not really going to help much... unless u r saying ported?

At altitude you need BOOST to make more power because of the thinner air.
