What Throttle Body?

I am going to replace my throttle body this week and was wanting opinions. Do I replace it with a stock oem one from dodge or an aftermarker one? If aftermarket which one?

i would go with a stock replacement. the arrington is nice but for 1 grand you could get alot more mods. with your current mods you probably wouldnt even notice a difference with the arrington

That would be a little pricey for me for no more gain than you would have.

jeez -I just a read a post somewhere about a guy that drilled a tiny hole in the TPS, being careful only to drill a very short way into the thing. Then he sprayed some CRC automotive electrical cleaner inside the the thing and soaked it, then blew it dry and air dried it. then cover the hole with tape and some sealer, snapped the TPS back to where it had to go and all was fine again.
Google it - I can't remember where, but you have nothing to lose, maybe save a chunk while your at it.
