    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys, Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you a quick overview of the BBK 65-millimeter throttle body, available for all '01 to '04 V6 Mustangs. So in this video, of course, we'll be going over the performance and benefits of adding a 65-millimeter throttle body from BBK, as well as its materials and construction. I'll top the video off with the install, which I'll let you know up front it's gonna be the easiest ones you can do to your V6 motor, which why I'm giving it a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. The BBK 65-millimeter throttle body I have with me today will be for any '01 to '04 V6 owner who's looking to improve their acceleration and throttle response off the line with one of the easiest direct bolt-on mods you can possibly do to your 3.8-liter Mustang. Now in the aftermarket world the quote "Bigger is always better" usually applies, but today when we're talking about the throttle body, that's not gonna be the case. Talking about a throttle body like the 65-millimeter from BBK, bigger does not always mean better. It'll all depend on what exactly you have done to your 3.8 or 3.9-liter Mustang. Just to exemplify what I mean here, if you skip over the 65-millimeter and went to a 73-millimeter, all you have done is a couple of simple bolt-ons like a cold air intake, and, of course, you're pulling in way too much air than your engine can handle. With so much air you're actually gonna bog it down a little bit and lose a little bit of throttle response. So "bigger is always better" is not always the case when it comes to throttle bodies. In the case of the 65-millimeter throttle body from BBK I have here, this is gonna be a direct fit replacement for your factory option. You won't see a huge gain in power. But what you will feel is a slight increase in throttle response, and, of course, like I said, acceleration off the line. Now with the V6, we all know that it doesn't come with a ton of power from the factory, so helping out with acceleration and throttle response off the line is gonna be a pretty noticeable thing to take care of for your 3.8 or 3.9-liter. Now as far as the materials go, like I said, it's a direct fit replacement, so expect all OEM quality materials here. This one's gonna be manufactured from a lightweight 356 aluminum alloy, all CNC-machined for a perfect OEM fit. As you can see on the back here, everything looks exactly the same as your stock option. It might be a little bit more attractive as far as the finish goes, and, of course, has that BBK PowerPlus logo stamped right on top, with the 65-millimeter marking in it. This one's gonna fit exact like the OEM options. You don't have to worry about making any type of modifications. Now if you are interested in picking up the BBK option we have here, this one's gonna run you about 250 bucks. Now, to some people, it might sound like a lot of money for a throttle body, and honestly, I don't blame you. It's definitely gonna cater to the guys out there who are looking to pick up a stock replacement. Maybe the stock one has become a little bit more defective, isn't performing as it should, and you need a solid replacement. The BBK one I have here is gonna be that solid replacement, so 250 bucks is definitely the price to pay if you need to pick up a new aftermarket option. Shifting gears over to the install portion of the video, like I said in the beginning, this one's gonna be one of the easiest mods you can possibly do to your V6 Mustang, excluding the cold air intake, which is, by far, the easiest. Now with that said, this is pretty much related to that same system. All it's gonna take is about four bolts here on the back. All the hardware is included for you in the kit. You'll just need a ratchet and a very simple socket set to get this job done. It's just a matter of unclamping and removing a couple of sensors and swapping them into the BBK option. So to kick things off, start by disconnecting the negative cable on the battery because, of course, any time you're handling something like this, you want to make sure that negative cable is disconnected. Next stop, you want to disconnect the throttle position sensor, or TPS, the throttle cable, auxiliary return spring, and, of course, remove the couplers, all detaching from the factory throttle body, which will all transfer over to the 65-millimeter we have today from BBK. Next thing you want to do, just remove the four bolts holding in of the stock body, and as you can see here, it's just one in each corner here. Just set those aside, as well as setting aside the stock option. Once you've set that stock option aside, you can bolt in the new BBK option right into your factory manifold and your stock air box, and from there, include all the accessories that you removed from the stock option, swap it over to the BBK, and in about 30 minutes or so, you're good to go. A one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Just to wrap things up here for the overview and install, if you're looking to pick up a brand new throttle body for your V6, and, of course, you're looking to improve your throttle response and your acceleration off the line, you might want to check out the BBK 65-millimeter throttle body, which, of course, is available right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Gain Up to 10HP. Replace your V6's restrictive factory throttle body with a high performance BBK 65mm Throttle Body and unleash up to 10 extra horsepower and improve acceleration. In under an hour you can enjoy faster launches and have more fun at the track with this simple change to your intake system.

    65MM Bore. Your stock throttle body keeps your V6 from breathing freely and giving you all it's got. This BBK throttle body features a generous, free flowing 65mm single bore design that is great for naturally aspirated Mustangs.

    CNC Machined Aluminum. BBK's throttle bodies are cast from high quality, lightweight 356 aluminum alloy that is finished using CNC machining to ensure a precision fit. They feature double-sealed bearings, o-ringed throttle shafts, and precision die-stamped linkages to ensure a long life and maximum performance for your Pony.

    Bolt-On Installation. The BBK Throttle Body is designed for a straightforward installation and includes all necessary hardware. It is designed to be installed reusing the factory throttle body gasket making it a no-hassle mod.

    Application. This BBK 65mm Throttle Body is designed for 2001 to 2004 V6 Mustangs.

    Technical Notes. Not legal in emissions controlled states.

    • If you get the Bama tuner they will send you free tunes for life. I got the tuner and a CAI initially then added this throttle body in after. Only took 2 days to get a new tune for it emailed right to me.

      More power

      The BBK Throttle Body gives you a lot more power but, a few people are having trouble with it idling too high and surging, I put a stout throttle return spring on it and it solved all problems. Good product, more power.

      Idled at 2k rpm

      Install was straight forward. Only issue I had was that after installation, the car would not idle under 2000 rpm unless I pushed down on the linkage to close the butterfly. I read some other reviews and saw that this was a common issue. I used a pair of pliers to bend my stock bracket that holds the two cables forward slightly. This took tension off of the cables and now it idles fine. Keep that in mind during your installation.

      Works great in end but two things. 1- Don't tighten screws in sensor all the way. Throttle won't close. 2- Push out the stop screw to prevent sticky pedal.

      Over Idle

      I put this on my 2001 mustang v6. And caused serious over idling. This caused my throttle position sensor problems and also malfunctioned my idle air control valve. Do not purchase this product if you have a 3.8 v6. Buy a tuner instead. Its a better option.

      BBK throttle body on my 04 3.9

      I gave this product 3 stars because after I installed it my RPMs skyrocketed to 3,000 and stayed there no matter how long I let the TPS do it's thing. I had to get my stang towed to a shop that somehow adjusted it so that wouldn't happen. They said it was bc my car isn't used to this much airflow, etc. Also idk why anybody else had this problem but it was impossible to unscrew to TPS sensor to change it over so I had to buy a new one ($25). So after a $75 towing few (to the nearest shop, I didn't drive it bc I didn't want the chance of blowing the motor), a $65 mechanic bill, and a $25 TPS sensor I have a functional throttle body. Oh and btw the mechanic bent the cable bracket so my cruise control would work; I heard on these models the cruise control cable wouldn't work bc the cable was pulled too tight, which is true. Pros: much faster, way better throttle response, and a more stiff gas pedal (which isn't a bad thing).

      Easy install! No cruise control though

      Easily swapped out with the stock and this is much much bigger then the 60mm stock throttle body. Bolted on no problem other then the cruise control wire is too short to reach so you have to detach it or the throttle remains open, mostly a problem for standard transmission stanngs. Otherwise much better performance and throttle response.
