- How to Install BBK Twin 62mm Throttle Body on your 2005-2010 Mustang GT
I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is our breakdown of BBK’s twin 62mm throttle body for the 2005-2012 Mustang GT, equipped with the 3 valve 4.6L motor. BBK has been on the front lines of Mustang performance for many years, this time, lending their expertise to the design of this throttle body for the drive by wire applications which is going to increase air flow into your engine versus the stock throttle body. Those gains come from a slightly larger diameter opening when using the BBK versus your stock throttle body, as you can see the BBK sports twin 62mm openings, versus your stock throttle body which features twin 55mm openings. This throttle body has been CNC’d from high quality 356 aluminum and features double sealed bearings and beefed up components for longevity and quality. A nice thing about this throttle body is you can run it without a tune and still make more power versus your stock throttle body. However we recommend getting a retune after install just to squeeze every last bit of power out of your setup. After that, transfer over the electric motor and the stock TPS sensor from your factory throttle body, over to the new BBK unit, that’s it, it should only take you about two hours from start to finish. So if you’re looking to help your 3 valve 4.6 motor breath a little easier and you’ve already tackled the basic bolt ons, then you might want to check out this 62mm throttle body from BBK.

This was a quick and easy install that took me about 1.5 hours after work. Didn't even have to wait for the weekend. Not only can you feel the gain but you can hear the gain. Makes a really nice sound.Helpful (2)

Doesn't fit with plenum cover. Second worked on getting it wright for 4 hours they put so mush lock tight on the brass screw you can't even turn it plus they do not even put a head on the screw to help turn it. I had to put vise grips on it to turn it and don't know why they even put thread lock because it has allen lock screw to hold it. Third i could not get the volts wright at all butter fly is so tight sprayed it and still to tight . Never buy BBK again.Helpful (4)

First it does not fit with the plenum cover . The brass screw has no where to grab it to adjust it . Put a screw head or wrench head on it . It is so tight you have to use pliers to turn it . To much lock tight used on it. Would not hold the volts in one place they where all over the place. Linkage needs to be lubed up before you send it out. I tried spray silicone and still to stiff. Very bad experience.Helpful (3)

Replaced my stock throttle body with this BBK. At the same time other upgrades were added as well. So I can't give a accurate rating on the performance. Or a install timeHelpful (4)
Does this give the engine a whistling sound? I had a throttle body spacer once and it gave the car a whistling sounds that annoyed me to no end, so i took it off. Does this produce a whistling sound?
I have not noticed any whistling sound with this installation. I do hear an increase in airflow sound, but no whistling.
Spacer? Just out of curiosity is the spacer actually needed? I have a C&L CAI and the mouth is pretty big on it so I'm thinking it will fit anyways but will I even need the spacer?
This throttle body, as well as any aftermarket throttle body, should not be used in conjunction with a spacer. Throttle body spacers are intended for stock throttle body bore sizing and will constrict airflow, which ultimately offers a decrease in performance when the main goal is increased performance. Hope this helps!
Will this throttle body be to big for my K&N cold air intake? I was reading the comments on this throttle body and noticed that someone had problems making his K&N CAI fit over the enlarged throttle body. Is this true? could I squeeze it on, or would I have to buy something to make it fit?
This will work with you intake. Might need to spray a little wd-40 on your silicon coupler to slide it over the new throttle body. But will work easy enough
I have the Throttle Body Plenum cover. Will the cover fit over the new Throttle body since it's a 62mm instead of 55mm?
The Throttle body plenum cover will not properly fit the BBK Twin 62mm Throttle Body due to the exterior design of the throttle body.
I have installed a Airaid CAI in my O6, If I order the BBK TB, will I also need the Airaid TB spacer.
The BBK Twin 62mm Throttle Body will not require a throttle body spacer, and works best without the use of a spacer.
The BBK Twin 62mm Throttle Body will work with a JLT CAI with no issues.
If you are referring to the mounting bolts for the throttle body then no. In fact you do not want to use that just incase you need to make an adjustment in the future. I had a little trouble after installation and I had to reinstall but no issues since.
CARB items will come with a sticker. If you are missing your sticker, we ask that you call into our Contact Center so that we can help.
This would not work together no.
We would recommend this here and a computer tune will be required:https://www.americanmuscle.com/airaid-racecai-0509gt.html
This throttle body is compatible with the C&L cold air intake, however, you may need to adjust the tubing to accept the bigger throttle body.
Yes, the BBK Twin 62mm Throttle Body will work with most Shaker systems.
Unfortunately we are unaware of any sites or databases that have any type of info like this.
Hey! Yes you may have to stretch the rubber coupler a little but they are compatible. I strongly recommend a tune to correct the air/fuel mixture, with the addition of more air you will run leaner than normal(lack of fuel or too much air).
If I understand the question, you are worried about the shaft is on the drivers side that is attached to the butterflies in the throttle. http://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-62mm-throttle-body-05gt.html#customer_pics-0 (shown in the bottom throttle body). You would be reusing the factory motor or actuator which will cover up and attach to the shaft. (shown in the top throttle body)
