Randy bored my stock OBDII M52 TB for me.. excellent job!!! the gain is noticeable with the shark software, but custom software would be a plus.

Randy did my TB as well. He did an excellent job and I noticed there were no spaces between the butterfly and the TB, the flaps closed very tightly. Some people who bore out TB's will leave gaps between the butterfly and the TB making your idle very rough.
