OK I only want to hear from folks that have a 70MM TB and what other modification were required to get it working. Please select all that apply.

I had the 70mm tb on my 5spd (sold recently- i should have pulled it), and the difference was in how the motor responded to the pedal. i mean, it turned my 5spd into more of a "response" machine. It did not make the car much faster, but it did make the engine much more sensitive to speed changes, ie, acceleration was a little more "urgent". i was able to spin the tires much easier- but that was about it. You would see HUGE benefits from the larger tb if all the bottleneck components were removed/replaced, in other words, a heavily modded SC. The tb doesn't do much for a stock SC. would i still put one on my current '90 SC AOD? yes.

Just looking at your mods you are no where near ready for a TB upgrade.

Dave,
How do I get my car ready for the 70mm tb?

Dave,
How do I get my car ready for the 70mm tb? You don't. What I meant is that you don't need a bigger TB unless you have the need for more air. You don't have the need for more air until you at least have a supercharger upgrade first.
