Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

White 2001 GT Mustang
I was very impressed with the design and construction of the Accufab Throttle Body! The installation took me about 35 minutes, very simple install. I currently have a C & L Upper Pelnum and it fit perfectlly with the C & L Pelnum. I am currently dressing up my engine, so the shiny crome throttle body makes my engine compartment look sweet. Now in reegards to the performance aspect of the throttle body, read some reviews saying they "don't recommend" upgrading to a (75mm) throttle body unless you have a supercharger or upgraded heads and cams on your engine, because it "will not" increase the performance of your lightly modified V-8 SHOC engine, but my mechanic and some of the people who's reviews stated it would not increase the horsepower are wrong!
After the install I started my engine and noticed a nice raspy growl on my stock catback muffler system, now that raspy growl is not loud, but it is much louder sounding now then it was before. I also upgraded to a Basani High-Flow X-Pipe recently, just before the install of my new 75 mm throttle body. I always like to do lots of research before upgrading a part on my 2001 Mustang GT, read the reviews, as well as read any reviews on performance part websites, such as Dyno testing, then I will make my final decision. Noiw I reviewed the C & L website in regards to what size throttle body should be used with the C & L Pelnum to maxmize the performance of your worked Mustang. They recommend using a 75 mm throttle body, so after reading the reviews and looking at the their Dyno charts, using a 75 mm throttle body is "the best choice" in my opinion!
Basically your engine is a big "air-pump" so increasing the airflow will not only give you better gas mileage, but also increase your horsepower and thats the goal! I have not noticed a hissing sound like one review stated, which happens between 2500-3200 RPMs, but have "not" reached that higher RPMS as of yet, as soon as I do will update everyone if I experienced that. The car does pull harder, does have a little more horsepower, maybe around 2-4 horsepower increase over the 70 mm throttle body. I have the Airaid Cold Air Intake, which is a awesome cold intake system in my opinion.
So I am very happy with this upgrade. I cant afford a supercharger at this moment in time, so these minor upgrades have shown an increase increase in horsepower in my 01 Mustang GT. Finally the quaility of this throttle body beats the rest, even BBK thottle bodies. My old 70 mm throttle body was a BBK, and was happy with that purchase, but Accufab is #1, BBK is #2 in my opinion.
