Notice more power to the rear wheels. Sounds great when getting on the accelleration. Very easy to install less then 30 minutes.

This is my first mustang and I have owned it about two months. I added a cold air intake, an SCT tuner and the throttle body at the same time. WOW! Huge difference! It had power before but this is awe ...

Is it ok to install the BBK Throttle Body by itself for a while before puchasing/installing a cold air intake with tune?

Anonymous

  • It is perfectly fine to install this throttle body without a tune or aftermarket cold air intake.

I took mine off and misplaced the screws, can the OEM throttle body bolts be used? If not does anyone know what thread/length bolt is needed or where they can be purchased?

Kallar68

  • The BBK 85mm Throttle Body is a little longer than the factory throttle body so I do not believe the factory bolts will be long enough. I would recommend taking your factory bolts to a local hardware store where you can match them exactly and find them in a longer length if needed.

I just installed the "Black out" BBK CAI on my 2014 GT and I just wanted to make sure this throttle body will fit in conjunction with the CAI. I figured it would especially since its all made by BBK. But just wanted to be sure before spending the $$$.

Will the BBK 85mm throttle body work in conjuction with an Airraid CAI? I've recently upgraded the stock air box wth an Airraid CAI kit. Will the inlet tube fit this particular throttle body?

  • Definitely! We've had other customers purchase both together as well and they love the combo. Enjoy!

    Noticed some extra low end torque

    I noticed a decent amount of low end torque. However, it feels like my top end has decreased. Also my mileage has dropped by 3 mpg. Not really worth it for the lack of real gains. I'm going to get it tuned to see if that helps.

    Stock throttle body has a lil bit of hesitation, the bbk 85mm lets you know it's their and it's time go. Not just another bolt on gimmick that looks pretty under the hood, good product with real results.

    BBK Throttle Body 2013 GT

    After a combined upgrade of a JLT CAI, Boss 302 Intake and BAMA tune the 85 mm throttle body produced a noticeable throttle response at low end and a notable increase in torque though out torque band up to 7500 RPMs. After adding the throttle body I requested a tune from BAMA to incorporate the potential of the new throttle body which brought on the WOW factor. It looks great and functions perfectly. The price is a tad bit high.

    Great Product

    I installed this in just a few minutes once i picked up some new bolts. I also used the SR Performance Throttle Body Spacer with this product. The bolts that came with the spacer didn't fit the throttle body perfectly, so i went to Ace Hardware and got some new ones. This product works great and i've had no problems since install. In case you're wondering i checked the bolts that came with the throttle body itself and they would have worked perfectly without the spacer. I rate the performance gain as fair because it is what i expected to gain. I also used the Bama Tuner with this install.

    Excellent horsepower boost. At least 35% more air intake.

    I already have the BBK cold air intake installed, and once I installed this BBK throttle body, I noticed a gain in acceleration right away. I also noticed the sound of the air swooshing in everytime I accelerate. On another note I even noticed a higher, louder sound at idle which i love because it gives the car more of a muscle sound. Overall I must say I was impressed with all of the results of adding this throttle body in with my cold air intake. When these two parts are working together they really shine. I did not expect that much of a difference in speed and even the sound at idle. I would recommend this item if you're looking for a fairly inexpensive way to beef up your mustang without messing with the stock factory tune and getting into complications. The throttle body was fairly easy to install and I have no experience with working under a hood.

    Excellent product - produces driveablity improvements and slight HP increase

    I am one of the folks who got a nice acceleration and high rpm free spinning type of improvement with this BBK 85mm. Car is a little louder especially in from the air box. Idle is smoother and about 25RPM higher and very stable. No more stalling at traffic lights with this TB. I felt it pulled harder and was more easily able to blow past the factory redline. Since putting in this TB I have found out that the Coyote engine with factory intake likes to be shifted about 7000, no more.. at 7100 it seems to taper off. Before this TB I never had the accidental problem of exceeding 7000, it just wasn't easy enough to do. Some say TB upgrade is not worth it for a stock based engine, my experience shows the opposite. Dyno tests coming ASAP.

    Easy bolt on

    I ordered the BBK 85 MM Throttle Body and it arrived on time. The mounting bolts that came with it were too short. I called BBK and they sent me the correct ones that came 6 days later. A M should have made sure everything was right with the part before they shipped it out. At any rate, installation only took about 40 minutes. I already had the Roush CAI and Axle Back Exhaust and a Bama Performance Tune. The 85 MM throttle body improved throttle response and there is a noticeable power gain at higher RPMs. An added bonus is 2 mpg better mileage at cruising speed! I am happy with the part and I recommend it.

    love it!

    Install took about half an hour and right after letting my car learn its idle anew I noticed it was running way more smoothly. Taking it for a first test drive (with radio off and windows open :D) I realized the car sounds different when accelerating, very pleasant hissing sound around 2500rpm, making me think of a huge supercharger spooling ;) It feels like the engine is more responsive too. I don't know how big of a difference it made on the high end, but Ill check it on the dyno. :) With long tube headers and cai from BBK already installed it should be interesting :)

    BBK 85mm TB on N/A application

    Had this installed after my Longtubes were installed. We did a couple Dyno pulls and only gained maybe 2HP and 1 ft lb of torque...Increases in throttle response are barely noticeable...It may "sound" better when you're on throttle, but this thing isn't worth half of what they charge for it.... Maybe on a supercharged application there may be some performance gains, but not a car full of bolt-ons. I pretty much got just as much power out of the stock TB...

    Definite improvement in throttle response. I would not make this my first modification though.

    It took about one hour to install and there were no installation issues. The instructions were good and the install is very easy. The throttle body improves the throttle response, particularly from about the 2300-4500 RPM range and seems to provide slightly better mileage in around town/city driving - though I have no emperical data to back up that claim. I also have a low restiction cold air intake (CAI) on the car as well and they seem to work well in tandem. The price is on the high side in terms of horespower bang-for-the-buck compared to some other modifications you could choose. I would not make this my first modification if you are mostly looking for HP increases or if your money to spend is limited. Overall, I am pleased with the product so far. This is my third modification to my 2011 GT, the other two being a Rousch low restriction Cold Air Intake (CAI), and the Ford SVT GT 500 axle back muffler kit.

    This product is over priced alot. it is worth buying though. it does give you any power that i can tell but increases throttle response. throttle response is definately alot better but again, if there is any power gains i cant tell.

    BBK 85mm Throttle Body

    I bought the BBK throttle body for performance & it did pick up some throttle response & low end torque, what I was most surprised about was an increase in fuel mileage. I have a 2012 Track-pack 5.0 with 3.73 gears & I was averaging 24 mpg on trips. Last week after I installed my throttle body I drove to the Charlotte Auto Fair & got 26.8 mpg going & 27.2 on the way back. I am extremely pleased with my BBK throttle body!

    BBK 85 mm throttle body

    Nice performance upgrade, throttle response is greatly improved and car seems to have noticeable power gain, how much I'm not sure. Install was not bad except that the factory screws that mount the throttle body to the intake were too wide for the new throttle body and I had to grind them down to fit. This was due to the overall width of the BBK throttle body. This was something that was not mentioned on any of the reviews I read. Other than that install was a breeze.
