    Review & Install Video

    BBK's 70-millimeter throttle body I have here today is a good option for any of my '94, '95 5-liter owners out there that are looking to squeeze every last bit of power out of their naturally aspirated or force induction motor. And when it comes time to install this, expect a very easy one outta three wrenches in our difficulty meter here, about an hour job, all you need are basic hand tools. We're gonna show you how coming up soon. So when it comes to moving air into and out of your 5.0, there are a few general rules here, guys, cold airs, throttle bodies, and intake manifolds coming in, and you got long tubes and a cat-back moving it out, but some parts have a tendency to move air more effectively, like long tubes compared to a pair of mufflers. Now if you've done both, and you also have some air or exhaust mods, then you're literally looking at where your power bottleneck is, and it's usually the stock restrictive throttle body. Now while throttle bodies aren't mods that make gobs of power on their own, when paired with the aforementioned modifications, they really will add more power that can't be found elsewhere, and in the long run, we're all hunting for bigger numbers, right? So the Mustang's factory throttle body comes in at around 56 millimeters, and BBK's here is gonna be a 70 millimeter. Now, while the bigger diameter sounds like a small upgrade, it's actually a big step in the right direction, but bigger doesn't necessarily mean better on its own here. If your motor's completely stock, this is not gonna do much for you, but if you're investing in exhaust pieces or an air intake, maybe an intake manifold or even other power outers , that OEM throttle body will quickly become a bottleneck. Now this throttle body fixes that, it's gonna free up that extra air to your motor needs to take advantage of those other mods. Now lookin' at the construction a little bit for you, this throttle body is made from a permanent mold casting of 356-grade aluminum to produce a higher quality casting than a conventional sand mold which reduces porosity for an improved finish. And while we are on the finish, this does have a pretty nice looking polished look that is gonna fit well under any hood. Now it's worth pointing out a couple things here, guys, one ,this is not a tune required part, meaning that you can simply install it and hit the ground running, not have to pick up a Ford back Aluminator chip, but we're always gonna recommend doing it. Now two, this is more of a recommendation from me and everybody else here at American Muscle, and like I said a little bit earlier, if you're gonna do the throttle body here, it's really best to pair this at least with a cold air intake to really yield those gains. With that being said, BBK's 70-millimeter throttle body by itself costs only around 220 bucks, which will make this about 70 bucks more than the SR Performance offering, and your main differences here are merely going to be the manufacturing process and the brand name. Now this throttle body is precision CNC machine while the SR Performance is cast, which is generally a little bit less expensive to produce. And when it comes time to the installation, just like I had said a little bit earlier, guys, expect a very easy one outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and about an hour job only needing basic hand tools like a socket set. You're gonna wanna start by removing the negative battery terminal, followed by the hose from the throttle body to the air intake, then detach the three cables to the throttle linkage, followed by unplugging the throttle body sensor, as well as the idle air control sensor. Now at that point, you can then remove the 4 nuts holding the factory throttle body onto the intake manifold with a 13 millimeter wrench or socket. Now you can then remove the factory IAC and throttle position sensor. And once they're off, it's gonna be a great idea to clean the IAC with a little bit of car cleaner before you throw it back on. Now you'll then install the throttle position sensor and IAC onto the newer throttle body. So with the supplied gasket, you'll install the new throttle body onto the intake manifold and secure it with the factory nuts, and torque 'em down a spec. And once you're done there, you'll then reattach the linkages to the throttle body and plugs onto the TPS and idle air control. So once you're done there, you can then install the hose back onto the new throttle body, then connect your negative battery terminal. And once you're done there, you're gonna wanna fire your car up and then adjust the idle by turning the Idle screw. Now if that doesn't change the idle, just adjust the throttle position sensor until you're where you need to be. So that's gonna wrap up my quick review and breakdown of BBK's 70-millimeter throttle body, fitting the 1994, 1995 5-liter Mustang, that can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Gain Up to 12HP. By replacing your 5.0's throttle body with a free-flowing BBK 70mm part, you'll gain up to 12 horsepower and improve throttle response for performance you can really feel. This easy bolt-on mod will increase airflow right where it bottlenecks on the OEM part, untapping hidden horsepower.

    70MM Bore. Your stock throttle body is a restrictive 56mm, choking off airflow and keeping your 5.0 from breathing freely and giving you all its got. This BBK throttle body features a generous, free flowing 70mm 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 70mm Throttle Body is designed for the 1994 to 1995 Mustang GT and Cobra with the 5.0L engine.

    Technical Notes. This BBK throttle body is CARB certified (CARB EO Number: D-245-13) and 50 state legal.

        I own a 1995 mustang gt 5.0. It has an H pipe. It has a ram air intake. It has a ram air hood. Other than that its stock. Should my next upgrade be the throttle body?

        • With all those modifications, it would be a great idea to upgrade to the BBK 70mm Throttle Body. I also recommend getting a custom tune as well. You can go with the Bama 4-Bank Eliminator Chip w/ 3 Custom Tunes, item # 38000G94, (https://www.americanmuscle.com/sct-4bank-custom-9498gt.html).

        with the throttle body should i get a mass air flow and what kind do i need or should i get a bigger better one, will it make more power or not, i will also be getting a chip soon so do i need the maf with a chip

        • I have both the BBK CAI and 70mm throttle body on now, i did not have to get a MAF, but later after my GT40 intake, heads, and e303 cam install i am upgrading to the lightning MAF. Hope this helps.

        Hi. I've got a 95 cobra 5.0. I have bbk shorty headers,bbk H pipe, bbk cold air intake, but no other mods.my stock throttlebody is a 56 or 60mm. I cant remember. With the mods I have ,should I go with a 65mm 70mm,or 75mm throttle body . And after that what injectors and maf sensor should I pair with them?? about a month after the TB upgrade i will do the injectors and MAF ,Thanks

        I have a 94 (only 24k org miles) and to this point all I have done is an American Thunder exhaust and BBK Off-road X-Pipe and cat delete. I just ordered a BBK CAI and will be installing that shortly. Would I see a benefit from installing this as I have been reading that it may not be wise without some fuel system upgrades? Also with adding this should I think about purchasing a tuner chip? Thank you in advance for any help.

        Can this be installed on a 94-95 Cobra Manifold with modification to the upper intake.

        • The BBK 70mm Throttle Body is compatible with both the GT and Cobra intakes from 1994-1995 5.0L Mustangs.

            Perfect fit

            Just got this installed and it fit perfectly. The only downside is having to use the old TPS and IAC sensor hardware. Mine were siezed on the original throttle body and TPS.

            Look good

            Since I have few other mods, this did not really make a noticeable difference in performance. I didn't expect any at this point, but at least this won't be a bottleneck when I make other mods. It does look great though and the installation was a breeze. I just wish I had paid more attention to the product photos which showed a gasket included with the TB. It did not mention that in the description and the website recommended a gasket set, so I purchased one and now have an extra set. Live and learn.

            Just uses more gas

            Overall this is a great product. I love the look of it in the engine bay and it went on super easy. But at the end of the day if this is your first or only mod for your 5.0 mustang you really won't see any performance gain which is kind of what I expected. If I could go back to when I purchased this product I would have just saved my money until I had enough money for heads. But don't get me wrong this is a super quality product. It went on in 15 minutes and a couple of cuss words from a stuck bolt. You can also definitely see the size difference from the stock TB. I think that when I get more performance mods I will really see the benefits of the TB.

            Quality product and looks great!

            This BBK throttle body fit perfectly and looks great under the hood. RPM's come up and little faster and pulls a little harder through the gears. The hardest part of the install was getting the two sensors off the old throttle body because the phillips screws want to strip out. Otherwise this 70 mm throttle body is a must have and worth every dollar. Thank you BBK and American Muscle!

            Overall nice product

            Received the new BBK throttle body in 2 days, the usual from AM-Thanks! Pretty straight forward and was changed in about a hour. 1 IAC mounting hole for the bolt was not as deep as the factory so I had to acquire another shorter bolt.The only difficulty otherwise was there are two conflicting instructions from BBK on adjustments, one says comes pre-adjusted with only very minor idle adjustments, but the install instructions give instructions on more adjustments, a little confusing but in doubt I did some online research. All the stock cables, IAC, TPS etc fit fine along with the CAI boot from my original throttle body. The rubber dust plug for the air adjustment from the stock TB won't fit the BBK so it would have been nice to have a new one included.

            HP AND THROTTLE RESPONSE YOU CAN FEEL.

            Easy purchase through AM and fast shipping. Install is very easy. The included instructions will guide you through it or you can you tube it for more details. Note: removing the Philips screws on the TPS is a little rough by hand. I used a Philips socket and a small ratchet with a lil WD40. The screws come out perfectly and totally reusable. Don't use a drill.. You will chew up the screws and have to drill them out. All in all it takes less then an hour. The hardest part is getting the right lower corner TB bolt off.. But it's do able. After you install the BBK T BODY, have someone press down on the gas pedal.. Bricks work too.. Make sure your throttle plate is opened fully. Many of us here drive 20 plus year old cars so throttle cables can and will stretch out over time. I added 3 zip ties, throttle cable is nice and slack free and the throttle plate opens up all the way . Once you start your car, let it run for a few minutes. And double check your TPS and IAC for air leaks. Also the BBK T BODY idle screw is pre set so you should be good to go. A hex key can be used effortlessly to adjust idle screw if needed. There is a you tube vid where they dyno a bone stock gt with a CAI and 70 mm TBody. 24 HP and 20 ft lbs torque.. I added my 70 mm TBody to my SR CAI with BBK X PIPE no cats with Jegs brand Flow master 40 knock offs and a level 10 shift kit and factory 3:27s and can honestly say there is a huge difference from the stock t body...HUGE. Instant gains you will enjoy this purchase

            instant power

            It took me about 45 mins to install the throttle body. Mostly becuase i wanted to make sure i cleaned everything before instalation. My 1995 mustang fired right up, but idled little rough. I turned the gold screew counter clock wise until i got it to idle smooth. When i took it out for a test drive i noticed the extra power instantly. If you have a stock throttle body i strongly recommand upgrading it to at least a 70MM body.

            Pretty good Throttle response and louder CAI

            The install was pretty easy! and im not really experienced. The only problem i had was almost stripping the TPS bolts, and disconnecting the TPS. I got a vacuum leak because i couldnt tightened the TPS. But regardless the CAI i installed last month is a lot more louder and you can actually hear the air being sucked into the intake. And the throttle response was really good. And the only mods i have is CAI, 76 MM CAI. and the 70 MM was perfect for the minor mods.
