Description
Gain Up to 10HP. Wake up your 3.8L-powered Pony and launch faster off the line with a Power-Plus BBK Throttle Body. By replacing your restrictive factory throttle body with a free-flowing 56mm BBK part, you'll gain up to 10 horsepower and improve throttle response. Your factory throttle body forces air to bottleneck right where it matters most, and by improving airflow you'll maximize performance.

56MM Bore. Your factory throttle body keeps your V6 from breathing deeply and giving you all it's got. By bolting on a free-flowing 56mm BBK throttle body, your Mustang will get the air it needs to fuel the fire under the hood.

CNC Machined Aluminum. BBK's throttle bodies are cast from high quality, lightweight 356 aluminum alloy that is finished using CNC machining to ensure a precision fit. They feature double-sealed bearings, o-ringed throttle shafts, and precision die-stamped linkages to ensure a long life and maximum performance for your Pony.

Bolt-On Installation. The BBK Throttle Body is designed for a straightforward installation and includes all necessary hardware. It is designed to be installed reusing the factory throttle body gasket making it a no-hassle mod.

Application. This BBK 56mm Throttle Body is designed for 1994 to 1998 Mustangs with the 3.8L V6 engine.

Technical Notes. Not legal for emissions restricted states. Stock intake manifold may require port matching for proper fitment.

Looks good

Looks a lot better than the stock throttle body! It was pretty easy to install, but the bolts on the bottom were a little tricky to get to. I am 16 and I did it myself, so its not that hard.

what is the factory size of the 98 3.8l v6 throttle body?

  • Same exact size as this one, actually. 56mm. This one is just a little more free flowing in my opinion. It does help a little, but unless you have a need to flow more air freely, you won't notice much right off the bat. You'd honestly be better off getting rear end gears for pretty much the same price, for a lot more noticeable performance.

    Great product. One issue.

    Definitely feel more pull and a throatier sound, especially when combined with the BBK CAI. An issue I had when installing onto my '98 V6 Coupe...the bottom bolts used to secure it in place were actually too WIDE for the TB. I had to shave a little bit of metal off the TB so that the bolts would screw on. Doesn't effect anything, of course, but it was a mild annoyance. But hey, since when have we had to install anything without a little bit of elbow (Or Hand) grease?

    BBK 56mm Throttle Body (94-98 V6)

    Incredibly easy install. Noticeable performance gain. Highly recommended. For a little more kick throw in a cold air intake while you have it all apart anyway.

    '97 3.8 BBk Throttle Body

    This part works!It really does. Frankly, I couldn't conceive how a throttle body could improve performance.I waited a long time before getting one,and I am very satisfied. It took a week to get used to the new throttle response. I let as many other Mustang owners I new test drive the car to experience it themselves. I already had EVERY possible bolt on made for the 3.8. This was the perfect way to top it all off before my SCT dyno scheduled. One install note is take time to use penetrating oil on the 2 screws on sensor for butterfly valve. You'll see what I mean. I stripped both screws bad. Anyway-Love it.

    Good Product

    Definitely a good buy for many reasons. For one thing, with a BBK CAI along with this TB, you definitely notice an increase in HP. Secondly, will make a V6 sound beastly, especially if you have custom exhaust work. Definitely recommend.

    AWESOME

    I would definitely recommend this throttle body for your Stang!! The power this thing will bring to your V6 is definitely noticeable!! This product is definitely worth the money, and you will be surprised the power it will make!!! Dont hesitate to buy this for your car, trust me. It makes a good bit of power and it really compliments a BBK Cold Air Intake!

    Pretty Good,

    The product is pretty good, I just wish it was bigger then 56mm, but you cant really find any for a v6. It was pretty easy to put on, besides my TPS was stuck on my old TB so i had to get a new one, plus the i had to go out and buy a new nut and washer for the bottom right bolt becuase it was impossible to get the original nut back on, even with the new one it was a little tricky getting on. But deff feel a diff in throttle response.

    56mm throttle body

    Well it took me a long time to decide wither to buy this part or not and i have to say I'm glad i did. First thing you'll notice after you install this part is a stiffer gas pedal, a little extra sound but not much. Plus less pedal to do the job at hand. It fit perfect but the port is bigger than the port on your manifold. All and all it only took about 30 minutes to install but note guys take the time to use penetrating oil on the two bolts on the sensor (located on the side of the throttle body) you "WILL" strip them out.
