BBK Throttle Body worth it?

Hi guys I am thinking about buying the BBK Dual 62mm throttle body from AM but I am reading that unless your car is heavily modified, you wont notice any gains. So far I only have a JLT CAI, tune, and Pypes Pype Bombs. I plan on getting new headers, mid pipe and possibly cams down the road but I was just curious if this would do anything for me right now and if it's worth getting. Thanks

No it's not worth it as your car is now. Getting the cam and headers you can go with a larger TB. However, to get the most out of the dual 62 TB you'll want SC your car. Without going with a SC I would only go with a 85mm TB.

Save your money. Aftermarket TBs are typically more trouble than they are worth until you get heavily modified.
