does with work with the air raid throttle body spacer? I have the air raid throttle body spacer and I'm looking to buy the bbk throttle body and either the c&l CAI or the bbk CAI. Thank you

  • Im sure it will fit as you can see from a costomers picture and his review about how they both fit together BUT just won't work well to your advantage having both the bbk 73mm throttle body and the airaid spacer! If your looking for more hp and throttle response and little better torque then just do the throttle body but if want just torque and better throttle response then just use the spacer! Take from me I use to have both the throttle body and airaid spacer and when I took off the throttle body spacer I could really tell the difference!!!

Will I need to update my tune for this?

2012v6OKLAstanglover Year: 2012 Model: V6

  • Technically no, however if you don't plan on updating your tune there isn't much of a point installing this unit(and when bama tunes are free for life and easy why not?), I tried it without the tune and didn't notice much of a difference other than using more fuel, tuned it and my fuel consomtion went back to normal and I noticed a good power increase

Will this fit with an Air Raid CAI? I already have a Air Raid CAI for the 2012 V6. I am wondering if it is possible to add this as well. I understand it may be difficult, but I would surely purchase if I knew it is possible. Thanks

Stromskee Year: 2012 Model: V6

  • yes, if you look at the pictures for this product, there is picture of a car with an air raid CAI and BBk throttle body.

    What a differance

    I am not sure what Mr I"m a mechanic was talking about when he said his stang ran rough at first and his check engine light came on when he installed this TB. I installed it which only took about 20 min start to finish and I work on computers all day. But My stang ran just fine after installing it. I have a C&L cold air intake , bama tuner, and a TB spacer and everything fit fine. It was a little tough to get the rubber hose that connects the TB with the intake tube though as the new TB is Larger so that one hose needs to be stretched a little but it will go on. Now for performance gains between 2000-3500rpm i can tell that there is definitely more power. It is way easier to lay a patch from a dead stop just hitting the gas (with out doing a brake stand). It has also improved throttle response a lot. Not that it was bad before but now its like the throttle response you get from a Nissan VQ engine in a 370z its tap and go response. If your not convinced about the power gains you can go to www.bbkperformance.com to see the dyno run video they did. It shows hp gain of 12.8hp and 18.96 ft-lbs at around 3500 rpm and 4.72hp and 8.38 ft-lbs on the high end Its pretty cool. Hope this review helps...Ooh ya I Also Highly recommend buying all your mustang purchases at American Muscle the prices and service CAN NOT BE BEAT and the added value of free shipping its the perfect place for all your MUSTANG NEEDS. Thank you American Muscle for another great product :)

    Throaty sound with my Airraid

    Hardest partook install was getting my Airraid out of the way and it still took less than an hour. Definitely improved low end torque. Had to learn how drive the car again as 1st to 2nd can light up the tires a lot easier now. This product, my Airraid and the Bama tune are a great combination for fun.

    Quick, Easy, Nice Sound and Response

    Took only a few minutes. trickiest part was removing the two sensors lol. i have this installed with the steed pro flow. noticed a much deeper note of the tone on the intake and exhaust and throttle response increased nicely. Fit was tight with the intake but can be done fine. just work your way up from the bottom and you'll be fine. definitely is worth doing with an intake, as i was able to see through my diablo tuner that a lot more air was being fed to my engine throughout the whole rpm range. i have a video on youtube of how it sounds. check it out. username is pfmustang. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9GpgWrtKgE&feature=plcp

    its good

    Installed in 20 mins. I have tune, C&L cai, 3.73 and now this. More power is definitely there, but there is a short window. There is a bbk dyno chart out there that shows most gains is between 2k-4.25 rpms. So max hp is only increased 5 and 8tq. Throughout the dyno curve there is a peak of 13hp and 18tq, and its pretty constant between those rpms that I mentioned. This TB is most beneficial for quicker acceleration. And boy do you feel the it. It also gives my stock exhaust a deeper, slightly louder sound. For me, one super cool thing is that after installing this, I now chirp going into 3rd now, in my auto! Before i only chirped going into 2.

    Easy install

    This product is kinda pricey but it works and it works well. It slightly lowered the tone of my Roush axle-backs, and increased throttle response quite a bit. I have also noticed a slight improvement in MPG which is odd because I usually drive it harder after installing a mod, but I am pleasantly surprised. It's something that you need to do if you want to make your V6 run as best as possible. Install was easy. I would have had it done in about a half hour if I had not dropped a bolt down the inlet for the CAI.

    Marginal...

    I have the C&L Intake installed. The fit was SUPER tight, but it did end up fitting. Maybe if the intake wasn't installed, the performance gains would be more, but for the most part, they are marginal. If you have a stock intake, this may produce more bang for your buck. I had to take the entire intake out to install this as well, not just the inlet pipe from the filter.

    This product really works.

    It took only about 1/2 hr to install. It is a noticeable increase in power. There is way more throttle response now. That is exactly what I was looking for. I've already got Steeda cold air induction, a SCT tune, Flowmaster mufflers and this was the finishing touch. What a huge difference from stock. Now this v-6 feels like a true muscle car.

    Great part, great value

    The 73mm BBK throttle body is a great performance mod. Installation was a breeze, it only took me about 15 mins with nothing more that a socket wrench. I immediately noticed quicker acceleration while driving on the highway in 6th gear. I would recommend this part to all buyers, and it is a bargain at $400. I already had a cold air and a 93 bama race tune, and the throttle body really was a great addition. Great part.
