- 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.

The bbk throttle body is good really like the sound it adds pulling in more air..the only problem I'm having is it's not closing fast enough and throwing a code for actuator stuck open.. but other then that is greatHelpful (7)

Was having trouble with the flaps getting stuck open. I found the problem and now it works fantastic. If the 2 star screws next to the 2 philips screws are over tighten the flaps get stuck open losses those 2 up just a hair and works great nowHelpful (5)

I did everything I was supposed to even watched the videos. I matched the voltage exactly and winded the spring correctly. Even put a tune in for it. It keeps putting my car in failsafe mode. Throwing two codes one saying it’s stuck open and one saying it’s stuck closed. Put the stock one on and it runs perfect. Had a shop look at it as also and they had the same issue. Spend the extra money and get the ford performance.Helpful (8)

Put it on the car and works perfectly. If you’re having issues you just don’t know what you’re doing and should leave it to someone who does. Throttle response is significantly different. Can’t wait to see it tuned. P.S looks amazing.Helpful (7)

Bought this and installed it and did everything that I was suppose to do and still have an issue. When sitting at a light or in parked my car will rev up to 3,000 rpms for no reason. I adjust the tps sensor when I installed it and it still throws codes. Called American Muscle and they told me there was nothing they could do. Talked to a automotive shop and they said stay clear away from bbks throttle body because it will get stuck.Helpful (5)

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 (7)
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.
It will depend on the tune used for the vehicle. Generally from a throttle body, you'll see up to 10 HP/TQ.
Yes, this will definitely offer some gains on an otherwise stock Mustang, and the more modifications you add, if you do, the better they ill preform as well due to this larger throttle body.
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.
