is there a tune required? i have a SR CAI with no tune. if i put this throttle body on will i need to get a tune?


  • A tune will make it so you get the most out of your mods (including you CAI) but it is not necessary.

My v6 seems to overheat a little after driving it on the highway for a while. Put the stock throttle body back on to see if it was the throttle of course it was. So any idea why? Only mods my v6 has is an intake a demon coil pack.


  • Might better look into your cooling system. A throttle body wouldn't have an effect on engine temps. Check your coolant level as well as your thermostat. Probably just coincident. I'm a full time ase certified automotive technician.

how much does this effect gas mileage? And should I get the tuner first or after the throttle body


  • Well as far as fuel mileage is concerned it will only allow for a more efficient air fuel ratio meaning you will see more power with less fuel consumption if you can keep your right foot out of it all the time. And without a doubt buy the tuner first. You will not see the best gains from bolt ons until you tune the computer for the changes.

Length? I had a lot of trouble installing my Stack Racing CAI on my 2002 V6 due to bad fitting, I have literally no room for a Throttle body that is longer than the stock throttle body, so could someone tell me the length?


  • Same everything (length etc... not gas pedal spring tension.) as stock but inside diameter of infeed port.

    Pain in the butt-however

    This was a super simple install however after you install it you need to adjust the screw for it to properly idle(tinkered with it alot-stated in instructions) it might still be alittle goofy (gas pedal might be harder to push than normal completely tolerable) if that happens run to autozone or advance autoparts whoever you choose and get an aftermarket throttle spring!! Spectre makes them they're pretty cheap and will end that problem. I have an automatic (had an 00 t5) and this sucker is for sure noticeable not by a margin but you will notice some pick up! Quicker 0-60 times you'll be impressed it's alittle pricey for a person like myself who works minimum wage, don't lose hope it's all worth it. I'd recommend a cold air intake with this as well

    Good BUT...

    Good upgrade to have with a CAI but not happy I lost cruise control function, since the cable grab point is slightly more forward than stock. Also this throttle body tends to stick when I first put my foot on the gas. Contrary to what people may say, the outside diameter is larger. Didn't cause any issues but a tight fit with a K&N CAI but something to look into with other brands of CAI fittings. It does give some power though. I wouldn't return it but I'm not as happy with the unit as I thought I would be by any means.

    I purchased the throttle body and of course it came really fast, and I had it installed in just minutes... It really doesn't get much better then that. I noticed better throttle response as soon as I drove, this was well worth the price, especially if you are going to buy a CAI.

    Throttle body

    Already had custom dual ehausts,cold air induction,underdrive main pulley,ignition plasma booster and Diablo dual sport chip installed previously. New throttle body gives more punch off of the line and can tell there's good increase in torque when auto tranny downshifts. Now just wondering if replacing the mass air flow sensor will add even more to the system?

    If u have a cold air intake, YOU NEED THIS PART!!! it took 15 minutes to install!!! if you have the 3.9 liter v6 it will still work with it. Just make sure when you take the old one off that you pry it off with a rubber hammer. You need to screw the bolts off then find a spot to pry it off! GREAT BUY!

    Its an okay product.

    Got an 04 V6 mustang with K&N cold air intake. True dual exhaust too. When I installed this product it wasn't to good because wasn't exact size as factory. It kept my car reving at 2,000rpm. The plastic peace holding cables connecting to throttle bodie had to be bent a little so it can reach. But now it works perfectly fine. I do feel a tiny difference but not big thing. Gas pedal feels harder to push down on. Kinda like it. But for $260 it should be a little more exciting to drive

    It is worth every penny. I definetly got more horse power and it is very easy to install. The only heads up that I will give you is to be careful not to strip the screws on the throttle positioning sensor. I did this and i got them off by clamping down the old throttle body and using vice grips to take of the screws. Great Product though. Thanks American Muscle

    bbk 65mm throttle body

    All i have to say is wow. I purchased this tb and bbk CAI for my 2004 3.9L v6 and what a big difference it made. Throttle respode is so much better. One heads up,is that i dont know if its just the 3.9L but the cruise cable was a little short and made the throttle body stay open making it rev high. So i took the cruise control cable and it was back to normal. (i dont use it anyways). Also the gas pedal is harder but dont have a problem with it as other people say. Its makes the response better. And over time it will loosen up. Worth getting it and great fast shipping AM

    I love it. makes my mustang inhale more air.. I love that humming sound that it produces. just take note.. your CAI intake coupler may need to be upgraded since you make your throttle body to 65mm or 2.5 in. you need intake coupler of 3in on both sides from the intake to the tube. you can get that in autozone for 7.99.

    Great Mod

    Forgot to say that the pedal stiffness is nothing major, i've only had it a week and im already use to it. No foot soreness or anything. So dont be worried about the pedal being a little harder to push down. It just makes it respond better.

    Is that a supercharger?!

    At first, when I got this installed I wasnt sure if I had wasted my money or not. At first it was a little hard to push in, but when I started getting used to it, this throttle body has a really sensitive whine to it. When you get used to it enough you will have people saying, IS THAT A SUPERCHARGER! Very nice product!

    good product

    at first i thought this was a junk product when i first put it on. when i put it up to 2000rpm the idle did not come back down because the throttle string did not have enough strength to close the butterfly. but after messing with it a bit, i adjusted the stop screw and pushed it out a bit so it put less stress on the throttle wire. this worked perfectly and idle is at a grand in park and neutral with a normal 7-800 in drive and reverse. bbk has once again came through. thanks am

    BBK TB just what I needed

    Throttle body upgrade must have been what I needed for my application which is Procharger supercharger and 90mm Lightning MAF in my 2002 Ford Mustang (3.8L V6). It installed easily but I had to make adjustments afterward to complete project: took slack out of throttle cable by using spacer at accelerator pedal, disconnected cruise control cable for lower idle (yes I did allow for computer to relearn idle strategy many times), replaced throttle position sensor because I broke it during experimentation. Those adjustments are just unique to my situation. WOW did I notice a difference right after installing throttle body!! I could barely believe it. I let my brother and friend who have driven the car drive it again and they noticed right off. Increase in power at low RPMs and high RPMs. I should estimate 50 horsepower for me to notice that much gain in horsepower. HP gains with this upgrade must depend on air induction system leading up to throttle body. If there is none this upgrade may do little good. I used to get 288 horsepower measured at rear wheels on dynotest. Now I'm easily above 300 rwhp and getting ready to go back to dynotuner.

    Excellent Throttle Body

    Installation was very simple and straightforward and all new bolts/screws/gasket were included . I did had some trouble getting the old mounting studs to come out after removing the OEM throttle body; some PB Blaster and vise grips took care of that, and I also had to stretch out the coupler from my AM CAI to fit the larger size opening, but again it wasn't anything too difficult. You can definitely tell the difference in power, especially on the lower end for me. The gas pedal is a little bit stiffer. I agree that this is a must and it compliments a CAI with dual exhaust, thanks again AM!
