Do i need to inform bama if I add Throttle body My car is customed tuned with sct tuner, from American Muscle. If I add throttle body, do I need to retune? Thanks

Ruby Year: 2013 Model: GT

  • You don't need a tune with this throttle body; however, a custom tune will definitely help you get the most power out of the upgrade. If you already have the Free Tunes for Life since you purchased the tuner from us, I highly recommend that you give us a call so we can update your tune!

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?

Clemmy Year: 2011 Model: GT

  • Absolutely...I just put in the BBK 85mm in my 2012 GT and I had already installed an Airraid CAI. No problems with the installation. It took less than 30 min. The Airraid CAI fits perfectly fine with the BBK 85mm throttle body.

85mm or 90mm ?? I plan to throw on these mods on my 2012 GT in this order: 1. Bama Tuner, 2. Airaid CAI, 3. BOSS Intake Manifold. Then for the last bolt on mod i would like either a BBK 85mm throttle body or the 90mm. Which one would be the best purchase in this particular case? I don't want to over-do it with a 90mm if that is too large for these mods.

MartinGT Year: 2012 Model: GT

  • I did the exact same thing to my 2012 GT in that order. You are right the 90mm is a little over kill from all the research I did unless you plan on a supercharger later. You are going to love it when you get done!

    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.

    A little high priced but worth the mod

    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.
