New throttle body...which one and how big?

I'm looking into a new throttle body, probably a BBK. The question is, which milimeter. I see that they come in 54 and 61 milimeter sizes. What is the major difference in the two? Which would be more practical for a daily driver/occasional offorader?

The second question is, would a new throttle body be compatable with a cold air intake, like a K&N FIPK? Im pretty sure that if possible I would d both at the same time.

Last question, anyone who has done a lift, what did you pay to have it installed? I want the Rancho 4" with larger radius arms. I'm pretty sure that i could get the parts for around $1000.

I havent put my lift in yet but they gave me an estimate of $500 with new arms and leaf springs. But they said it could be more depending on how it all came apart and if enything else had to be replaced. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Ok is that $500 or $5000? If it's 500 installed I'll drive to Michigan to get it done....

The kit I'm looking at is around 1000 for parts and they wanted like another 1000 to install it. 500 is great for installation on a TTB kit.

Which venturidiameter? Small diameter and the torque will be at a higher rev, higher flowspeed. In that case the bigger must be better for a V8. Check so you don't oversize for your cui. As you might know it's differences between fabricates. As Smokey Yunick said, a 390 Carter was better than a 650 Holley.

Priced it up today. $1800 if I pay cash, which I will. rancho 4" kit, 5000's, steering stabilizer, radius arms, rear springs and alignment. Figure that's a pretty good price.
