No...

Some will say it does..but lets be real..air coming in your engine is in the area that is "ported" like a millisecond. Not enough time to really impact anything.

unless you're running a fast 102mm intake, leave the throttle body alone, lol and only then do you need a 102mm throttle body(Nick Williams is one of the most popular)

and I say wait on both of those until you are full bolt-on and do them in conjunction with a cam swap

Throttle Body will be more for throttle response than HP on the 5th Gen. Do a search on VMax...they are CNC ported TBs.

You need to look into Long Tube headers and a tune. An intake will help out as well but won't get you nearly the power gains as the headers.
