What may be the benefits of a larger throttle body in the RAM SRT-10?
No issues with the stock throttle body. The BBK is simply larger. Allows the engine to pull in more air quicker. Noticeable increase in throttle response and its like 10 horsepower or something.

There is no vehicle- made since or currently- that is as versatile or as fun as a SRT-10 Quadcab Ram.

ok.... ok.... I AM GONNA SAY IT....BBK's are finicky as Fu#k! 90% of us, that have them, suffer with the dreaded "pulse idle" and "idle hang". I figure the return spring is to weak to properly return the flappers back to the idle adjustment screw. Not worth the 7 hp..... Save your money and buy Rum....

I have an old X-metal throttle body. It's worked great for me, it also has the nozzle for the first nitrous kit I ever put on the truck.

There was no HP gain from going to a large single blade, confirmed on a dyno.

But then he came back because he forgot his keys.
Most blown engines record holder. Houston Engine and Balancing built me two, Arrow built me one, and now Kevin at EED took a shot, a 600 shot
Nitrous doesn't kill engines I DO

Throttle Body Latest Thinking

You dont need it but its actually a safety feature. If the engine is rushing you need something to stop that and the easiest way is to force the throttle grip back to idle position.

I might send my stock one to Dan, he bores them out to 65mm and maybe no hanging idle issue, the bbk is 67mm plus the added bonus of the idle hanging up

I have a BBK and I’ve heard a lot about these idle issues but have not experienced them once after some adjustments. I think I experienced more issues with the JTSVP TB that I bought off ViperPete some time ago (obviously that wasn’t his fault as it was in good condition) but I can’t help but think that it just varies from person to person based on preference.

I took my blades out of my bbk, Sanded then down with some Emory cloth and did the same to the inside of the Tb , unfortunately I didn’t get to test it before the engine gave up , so maybe when I get it back , I’m gonna get my stock one done by the dan to have as a back up
