unless you go to an application were you would need high amounts of fuel/air, then you dont need a larger throttle body.......the stock one is pretty good unless you upgrade all your other parts (fuel pump, injectors, intake, MAF sensor).....

you may get a little bit of better throttle response, but nothing significant.....think about it......with a larger TB you are pulling in more air, more air means you need more fuel, more fuel means you need larger fuel injectors, fuel pump, and so forth.......now to pull in that large amounts of air you need something to aid in pulling it in.....ie: supercharger or turbo.......

Out of Curiosity, do you know the amount of duty cycle our injectors face? Their 24# for a 4.0 engine compared to 19# for an OHV engine ( Same displacement ).
