VMAX throttle body install, what size?

I did a search but couldn't find any discussion on throttle body install.

I'm in a process of buying a VMAX throttle body but am concerned if I will be able to install it. From what I've been able to find it sounds like a pretty easy job.

How hard is the throttle body to install? On a scale of 1-10 I'm about a 4 on the mechanic scale, I'm comfortable doing minor repairs and installs.

Has any one had a problem with their CAI when installing the throttle body? I have a G5CR CAI, I want to make sure the CAI and the throttle body are compatible together before I start the work.

It looks like there are several different sizes of throttle bodies. What size did you guys go with? I have a LS3 engine and I don't want to have to modify or change anything else to accomodate the VMAX throttle body.

Thanks in advance for your help!

There is only one that will work with your car. Nevermind all the sizes listed. You will inform them what car you have and they'll get a ported and polished TB for your car. The install is probably easier than doing a CAI. You disconnect the intake tube, unplug the TB, loosen and remove the bolts, and reverse the process for the V-Max TB. It'll take you 10 minutes. You won't need to modify or alter or change anything. Just make sure everything is plugged back in. And don't go crazy when you tighten the bolts. Make sure you torque them down to spec.

I installed the VMax TB in my V6 all by myself in less than 20 minutes...and I'm just a girl with little experience...so I know you can handle the job. And I did take pictures every step of the way so I'd be happy to add some if you want me to?

Chapel- thanks again, you have been very helpful.

Envy- thanks for the offer but it sounds like a very easy install so I should be fine.
