I have been looking into buying a bored throttle body for my 97 xj. Jeepers & Creepers seems like they have a good deal on a 60mm TB for a bit over $100. They claim there is highly noticable difference in midrange HP and Torque. Has anybody had any experience with a bored TB? What else needs to be done after I put it in? J&C says that putting a less restrictive air intake and exhuast helps a lot also.

Hope you have a drill press with a big sanding drum attachment.
