Bored throttle body kill low end power?

Does anybody here have a bored throttle body with no other mods? Does it cause a decrease in "pull" off the line?

My 2000 R/T supposedly has one put on by the previous owner but I can't confirm that. Only thing I have to compare it to is my 2002 Special and with the difference in gearing it's more of an Apples to Oranges comparo.

Guess you're looking more for someone that's had the car for awhile stock and then put the bored throttle body on.

I do believe that a few members have them.
Just give them time to find this post and I am sure that they will respond.

Exactly. I know it will help upper rpm power, due to the increase in airflow. I'm just thinking the same increase in airflow will cause a loss of low rpm air velocity .

It does not kill lower end power. It produces more power across the board.
