Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

Well worth it - fantastic product!
Ok, so I just got this 73mm throttle body today, installed it, and drove quite a while with different driving styles. I absolutely love this, and there are gains in many different areas! I did install 410 gears in my car, so I think that makes this throttle body even more awesome. With these gears, I imagined that this throttle body could aid in my situation, versus when I had the 273s. Fortunately, this has proven to be true! (I would do gears and cai before this if I still had 273 gears)…I also live in high altitude, (close to Denver, co. – mile high city), so air has been a problem for me. I have an auto, and the only way I can pull great power, is to go into select shift. In one test, at around 40mph, I hit 2nd, and it took off like a rocket with a wheel chirp (not quite redlining when I hit 3rd), so I know for a fact that this has never happened before. In gear 1 from a stop, I shut the traction control off, then shut stability control off (hold brake, hold stability control button for around 5 seconds, then on the dash it will say ‘stability control system off’ – you may have to try a few times as my car varied from 3-10 seconds on the button press thing) – With these two systems off, I applied full throttle and it did burn rubber! – This never happened before either, as the brake had to be applied in the past to do this. Definitely noticed power increases throughout the band with my setup, so I am very happy! My setup is 410s, bbk cai, bbk 73mm throttle body, 91 race tune from bama. In terms of how drastic the power is, for me, I certainly noticed it, and there was an extra edge there that was not there before I got this throttle body. For me, when I consider dollars per HP/TQ increases, this has been well worth it! – Hope this helps!
