Hey guys what will I gain if I install a BBK power plus throttle body and an Accel race ignition on a lightly modded Lt1 ?

You'll gain throttle response because of the bigger TB blades, and maybe a couple of HP if your motor needs the extra flow.

Don't forget to get the PCM programmed for the bigger TB! :)

Depending on the model. I have installed on "wytltng." Not sure if I notice the difference or not but I used to make sure I always have adequete spark & get a hotter spark for low rpms. I am also running the Accel coil, module & distributor.

I had the Accel 300+ ignitionin my 9C1 and made the car start a lot easier. As far as power gain, couldn't remember how much.
