Throttle Body Upgrage or Not, Please Help

I know there are more then a few posts on this subject. My main hiccup on this is due to the California law being NOW strictly enforced it kinda killed my plans for LT's. I don't want to get busted and then revert back to stock. So here I am now wanting to see, upgrading the throttle body and supercharger snout to 82+mm from the stock 74 we have is it worth it, especially keeping stock headers? I've seen the claims of up to 35-45rwhp. I'm more thinking 10-15 rwhp.

If it doesn't mess with your emissions, which it shouldn't, (if you do that there in Cali) I would say go for it. You will not be able to see a difference when you pop the hood. That set-up is how the car should have come from the factory anyways if you ask me. Lol.
