im not aware of any aftermarket throttle bodys for the SOHC 4.0. the throttle body is already quite large so i dont see what a different one would do for you anyways.

you can port your own TB for free... not that you will see any HP gains out of it.

I havnt heard of any after market TBs myself but it seems to me that I have heard of people using the TB from a Mustang and others using the TB spacer but dont think it makes much of a difference. If you have never cleaned it before, try taking it off and giving it a good cleaning, that should make a heck of a difference right away.

I recently cleaned mine over the weekend and noticed a tremendous difference. My Ranger is 9 years old and this was the first time I had ever cleaned the throttle body.
