Where to get a bored throttle body?

Where can I get a bored throttle body for a 4.0? What should I expect to pay? To those of you who have them, what kind of improvements did you see and was it worth it? Thanks in advance!

I found one on ebay for about $160, plus you send him your old one. It comes with a spacer and all the required gaskets. As far as what to expect, I can't really say for sure, becuase I have the 2.5l, but it did wonders for my engine. If you are trying to find a little more power, you might also think about an electric fan.

I got mine from Jeepers and Creepers. The final cost was around $80.00. This was the best bang for the buck so far. When I went from 31" tires to 33's I really felt the power loss due to the larger tires. With the bored TB I regained most of the power and I'm still getting 17mpg. It was very much worth the money to me.

I dont know anbout on the 4.0 but i just put the 4.0 TB on my 2.5 and really cant tell much of a difference. I know alot of people say they can tell a difference but i cant. There is a very slight increase but VERY little. I think most of the perseption of an increase is when you drive it, it is very easy to be harder on the gas, which feels like more power. I hope you understand what im saying, lol. Basically, with my normal driving habits its still about the same but it will rev up a little faster and easier. But hey, the total mod cost me $1.58 plus tax so i really cant complain.
