why do you need a bigger throttle body? what supporting mods do you have that would warrant the bigger than 52mm throttle body?

Yes you could but 52mm is fine for most all 55mm max but the 52 atc tb from a junkyard is gonna be sooo much cheaper then buying or modding a 55 or 60mm go with the 52 for now lol

A friend of mine just recently went from a 52 to a 60 on his nyg and said he gained absolutely nothing from it. You need some work to make full use of a 60mm.

All automatic 1st gen's have 52mm TB. Stick with that. When you do major upgrades (Turbo or Cams, High Compression Pistons, Etc..) Then do a 55mm+

Even then a honed and modded 52mm will be more than enough. I'm possibly planing on going with ITB's on my neon, but thats a whole other subject.

Is the 65mm on a 2.4L Turbo by any chance? No way possible that you would get a single positive result from that on a 2.0L N/A. lol

I'm going to prove that a 52mm ATX TB that has been half-shafted is plenty for a 2.4 Turbo lol
