I have a Curt Brown Ported 65mm throttle body that I would like to install only for the drive to the tuner. Does anyone know if it will give me any issues during the drive on a stock tune? I read about the old Boomba throttle bodies and they did not require a tune according to Boomba.

Nope. Runs fine.
I have an OEM Mitsubishi Eclipse V6 throttle body (they're 65mm already) on the Evo X.
Ran like nothing ever changed.

Thanks for letting me know. I went ahead and installed it and it's running fine! Did you bother with the throttle body idle relearn procedure? I followed the Boomba directions for their throttle body install and just ran through the procedure just in case.

Nope. It will learn idle on its own in maybe 15 mins idling in case it needs to relearn.

My brain wants to tell me bigger is better. I honestly can’t say I felt a difference at all. It’s not the bottleneck in my system so I doubt I had much gain.
