Description
More Power. BBK Performance has designed and patented the first Throttle Intake. A Throttle Intake incorporates a high flow intake plenum and a larger 78mm BBK throttle body all in one great performing unit. This throttle intake is a direct bolt-on and is good for an additional 12 to 15 horsepower. Quality Construction. This BBK Mustang throttle body is CNC machined from high quality 356 aluminum to ensure OEM quality and a perfect fit. Features like OEM die stamped throttle linkages, double sealed bearings, and o ringed throttle shafts make this throttle body one of best on the market today.

Application. BBK's 78mm throttle intake is designed to be a perfect fit on all 1996 to 2004 4.6L SOHC GT Mustang. This BBK brand throttle body reuses the stock factory throttle body gasket.

Please Note. A 78mm throttle body works great on a heavily modified or supercharged GT mustang, because stock or mildly modified GT's do not flow air enough to benefit from the larger Throttle Body.

Technical Note. This BBK product is not legal for use in emission restrictive states.

  • All the factory sensors and vacuum hoses attach exactly as the stock plenum/throttle body. You can use your stock rubber intake tube but it will take quite a bit of prying and pushing to make it fit over the larger inlet opening of the BBK, and you will need a larger hose clamp.

78mm for N/A or smaller?? For a naturally aspirated engine would you get more horsepower out of a larger intake such as this 78mm Throttle intake made by BBK, or would you get more horsepower out of a higher velocity intake with a smaller diameter such as the Accufab 70mm throttle body and plenum?

  • This not so much an answer but a question are you going to remain stock? Upgrading to a larger throttle body is usually one of the first steps besides the exhaust in modding engines so if you are going to remain stock then the 70 mm would get you better gains but if you are going to put cams or power adders then the 78 is a must.

    Interesting Gains

    July 09, 2011

    Before you purchase this product you have to note that on a naturally aspirated 2V motor the gains are on the top end... when you hit about 3000 RPM you feel the increase in power, the best logical explanation is this... You are increasing the diameter of the throttle body you so you are decreasing the velocity (speed) of air entering the motor. Off the line it is a little bit sluggish BUT the gains are so noticeable that you feel it pull just like a turbo. The throttlebody also whistles when you shift gears, it sounds awesome. RECOMMEND this product all day, just make sure you don't buy the biggest intake pipe out there so you regain some of that velocity. :) YOU WILL FEEL THE GAINS at 3000rpm, for you speed demons you will be utterly impressed. I give it 5 stars all day. You just have to take into consideration that this is a low velocity TB so you will experience some turbo lag type symptoms. I love mine and the pictures don't do justice for the appearance :) BUY, ENJOY, BE IMPRESSED!

    Great Procuct!!!

    January 06, 2010

    Just had this put on today and all i can say is wow! I also have the BBK cold air intake and it really improved my throttle response. It does have a small whistle but that is normal because of more airflow. Even if you have a stock gt, save your money and get this instead of getting a seperate plenum and throttle body. Don't worry about 70mm or 75mm. This is all you need.

    throttle plenum

    I thought this was a good upgrade for my mustang. The only problem I ran into was my boot from the intake to the throttle didn't fit. I had to buy a new one so it wouyld work.

    BBK 78 mm Throttle Body.

    February 14, 2012

    Very pleased with this BBK throttle body. Install time was 2 hours, and the black and silver finish looks so much better over my old stock running pony TB. I notice the power difference when I take off from a greenlight or just an occasional drag to test her. This TB really opens up and you can feel the difference in the way the car sounds and extra emmphh... when she roars. Along with the BBK tuned shorty headers and Pypes midpipe, with violators, My stang now wakes the dead and sounds equally mean as she looks. Thanks BBK and American Muscle. JohnW

    BBK 78 MM

    April 17, 2010

    I have a supercharged mustang gt and this has made a huge difference. I was blown away at the difference in response time and the power it unleashed. The only thing i didnt like about it is that it is so big I had trouble finding a hose connector to fit it so I heated the hose i had and got it around it. I would recommend to anyone with a supercharger. dont know about and N/A motor though

    One Bad Throttle Body!!!

    October 14, 2011

    This is a one nice set up. It was a perfect fit no problems what so ever. I used a hair dryer to heat the rubber boot on my cold air intake and it went right on. Throttle response was great and it makes a awesome whistle sound when you rev it up. I highly recommend it. I thought it might be to big for my car but no way not even close. Idle is great as well as acceleration. Definitely a good upgrade. Get you one and you won't be disappointed.
