    The stock throttle body is fine until you start making serious power (ie - forced induction, etc).

    Some would say an aftermarket TB is even a waste of money; usually becase the HP gain from it is not worth the money involved in stock or mildly modded applications.

    A tuner is definately worth the money as long as you put the right tune in the car. For $300-400 you can't even buy a couple of tires let alone a performance gain. From what I understand a 96-97 Cobra is pretty much the same engine but the computer was changed for 98 so a tuner would be great.
