I don't think Spoon has one made for the CL7/9 ... What are you trying to achieve to justify a throttle body upgrade? It's quite meaningless in a mildly tuned NA application since it's not gonna show any gains on either acceleration, power or throttle response, quite a different story if you're going forced induction.

for the same reason people get high flow intakes...

more air, lots of tuned NA cars run larger throttle bodies.

on another note, beware of the popular bored out knife edge throttle bodies. they do break more easily, better just waiting for an actual large thick wall TB

Individual throttle bodies when configured/tuned setup correctly will definitely show gains while a larger throttle body a mildly tuned NA car will see virtually no gains.

There is also no improvement on air intake capacity from simply changing to a larger throttle body without significant mods ala - Engine work or forced induction. This is quite a different comparison to measure against mods like ITBs, or air intakes simply because it's part of the air induction/intake system.

individual throttle bodies make it so hard to tune
