What's the best 65mm throttle body available?

Hey everyone, I'm going to buy a 65mm throttle body for my car, I just bought a gt40 intake and a c&l 76mm air intake and maf kit. First off let me say that I have no idea which brands are good or not good. I was going to purchase a BBK until I talked to a major performance parts warehouse and they said stay away from the BBK's because they constantly had complaints about them from customers and from personal use. I also know alot of people would complain if their ice cream was cold , I'm asking for oppinions from personal use on this, I'm now leaning toward a FRPP tb because I've heard that's it works just like the stocker but performs better. Ebayers are selling a tb from professional products for over $100 less than the FRPP but is there a reason it's so much cheaper or is the frpp overpriced?

The FRPP 65mm throttle body seems to be the best.

I used the BBK on my first 95 and had NO ISSUES! Some people have had problems, some haven't. However, I like your ice cream analogy.

Thanks, I don't have a personal experience with BBK, I actually thought it was a good tb until I was told to stay away from it from a reliable sorce. I just installed my GT-40 intake today with a C&L 76mm mas air kit with the true flow pipe and I just put my stock tb back on until I decide which to go with. I think the FRPP tb would be a good choice but man it's alot higher priced, but the quality may be worth it.
