Throttle bodies for the supercharged (and everyone else)

Apologize if there is already a thread about this in another forum, but I was wondering if anyone has done a comparison thread of the various TB's available for our cars. Not just for us supercharged, but for everyone in general. I, for one, just installed my CTSC, and among aftercooling and a new inlet, would like to upgrade my TB. And although I have some ideas as to what TB I might use, I think a good comparison post would be awesome for me, and others who are looking and do not know too much about the options.

what are the dimensions to each of these? i believe the tl was 80->70? so i would assume the zdx is 78->70?

MDX / ZDX are the same. And yes 78 -> 70. It is significantly cheaper than the TL SHAWD one.

Got it back? So it did have issues and caused down time and probably more headaches than needed

Mine is not drive-by-wire but I have had zero issues with my Skunk2 70mm unit for two years now. I recommend the product, in fact.

i think i am going to do with the mdx tb. since it has to be rotated (i believe) with the imt inlet, does that mean that the hoses then would not be long enough to connect to where they need to?

The zdx is more expensive though.

Does anyone know what model year of the zdx/mdx? Or does it not matter?

The 07 is basically the same as the normal J35, it's small. No point.
