Hmmm, doesn't the 98 have a 70 mm throttle body? I know the 2000 GT is that size and thought the 98 was the same.

Of course, I could be wrong

I think the 96-98's either had 65's or 60's. I'll check for sure and post back unless anyone else knows.

Are you sure? I have a 2000 GT and could have sworn that the TB was 70 mm.

if you were to go with a bigger throttle body, would you need bigger injectors? If so, what kind?

Wow, now I am really

I thought the stock throttle body on the 2000 GT was 70 mm but was restricted down to 60-65mm. And then once I replaced it with a Ford Racing Throttle body, it was a true 70 mm throttle body with no restrictions.

i placed my stock 65mm TB up against the 70mm and low and behold there is a difference. the stock intake opening where the TB mounts to is already 70mm. the stock TB is where it is reduced to 65mm. Upgradeing to the 70mm you may feel a decrease in low end torque for a slight increase in HP >8HP. I'm probably going back to the stock TB because I want the torque and the 65mm is good till around 400HP, so I've heard.

Search the posts for TB questions and you will see many pro's and con's pertaining to the 70mm TB's

Good Luck!
