Has anyone ever thought about just having the stock tb ported?

When I hear anything over 15hp/tq from tb, it kind of does make me question. Definitely not saying it can't be possible but I personally never seen a simple tb mod on a street setup make anything more than 15hp/tq and that's really up there. I played with handful of tb's in the past from LS1 to the latest LS3 mild setups and on average they are worth about 12hp/tq. The main purpose for tb mod was really for throttle response. If the accufab is anything like the vmax CNC ported tb we had on our LS engine then I can purely understand when you guys say almost instant response

Can't wait to see someone dyno one of these tb's with boss IM.
