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!

There are no stupid questions, only stupid people.

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.
