        Do I need to add a spacer to install this throttle body? I have a 1988 Mustang Gt with a BBK cold air intake on it would i need to install a spacer with the Throttle body or can i just install it like this with no spacer? what are the spacers for anyways?

        • I have a 90 LX and it has a factory spacer that has the EGR valve mounted on it so as long as you have the original spacer you do not need to get a new one but there will be a significant difference in the diameter of the new throttle body to the old spacer. I bought both and ported the intake to match the throttle body opening to allow for more air flow. I would suggest for a few dollars more go for the spacer and just port the intake if it is stock. Good luck

            Good quality

            Very good and light throttle body. Replaces old and rusted stock one and bigger. My throttle body was old dirty and messed up so I can’t wait to see how differently it feels. I would totally recommend and pair up with egr spacer.

            Nice look and good upgrade

            If you have a stock intake then be prepared to so some porting, the opening is around 60mm and if you install this throttle body there is a severe lip that will hinder air fow dramatically. it took me with some primative porting tools about 2hrs to port but was worth it. This is about the last bolt on upgrade for me now looking at an intake, heads, and cam to compliment it. As for power gains it was hard for me to say I installed the throttle body as well as underdrive pulleys and removed the air pump. I did have a significant increase in off the line power and was able to spin the tires in second no problem so im sure the throttle body helped.

            • Response from AmericanMuscle

              This should have been a simple bolt-on with no porting necessary. I'm glad you were able to install this and are happy with the outcome. In the future though, do please give us a call before modifying as we can ship a replacement if something is damaged or defective. We're always here to help!
