    Me too! I just have an lx though. I was thinking that one from a 1990 buick skylark could work but I dont think they will after looking at one at the boneyard.

    I believe that the stock throttle body on the GT is big enough for almost any mods that you could have done. I have never heard of anybody on here needing to upgrade it.

    If you have a 91-96 LX then the TB from a 97+ Escort is a direct bolt on and its 4mm bigger than stock. Of you already have a 97+ LX then the throttle body from the 3.8 V6 in a Taurus, Mustang, ect or an 86-90 Escort GT will also bolt up to the intake and its 6mm bigger than stock, the throttle cable connection is on the wrong side though and you will have to splice the wiring for the TPS. BBK also makes an aftermarket big bore throttle body for the 3.8 Mustangs but this is probably bigger than you would ever need.
