Larger throttle bodies on the 6's amke them harder to drive at low speeds etc as you get a larger amount of air in for a small movement. The T series (5.6L) has a cam arrangement on the throttle body to make them easier to drive down low. Save your time and money. Herrod will also tell you they are a waste of time.
