Throtlebody Upgrade

Does anyone know of a throtlebody I could use on a 2.3L NA engine that would allow for better breathing than the restictive piece that came stock?

I'm working on the cylinder head to make the engine breath so using the stock throtlebody would be like running down the street breathing through a straw.

You have a couple of choices:

1st) You can buy a good throttle body built for the 2.3L that is also good for boost, but it is pretty spendy; throttle body

2nd) You can buy a throttle body from a '94-95 GT or Thunderbird Supercoupe, these are easy to fit, you just have to redrill a couple holes in the throttle body and port the upper to match. No fabbing or anything. You will also need to buy this part from 40bob.com(extend the throttle cable mount Item # 910.002, which is 20 bucks).
You can probably buy a throttle body for around 40 bucks, and the extension for 20, so you are looking at around 100 bucks to make the conversion.
