    I had the 85mm BBK throttle body on my 05' silverado with the 5.3, and all it did for me was make the engine run crappy. you have to have it tuned, or buy a programmer and fix the A/F ratio. I had over $1,500 invested in my motor, and I wasn't impressed. I ended up selling that throttle body for $200 at the swap meet, I am sure someone will get on here and tell you how great they are though................:rofl:

    Not worth it unless you have an F/I system and need to go bigger. Your current throttle body is just fine for 99.9% of the systems out there.
