    Review & Install Video

    Justin with Today, I’m going to be taking a closer look at the BBK 70 mm throttle body for all ’05-’10 V6 Mustangs. BBK is one of those companies who loves Mustangs just about as much as we do, and it shows with all of their quality EFI products for late-model Mustangs. This throttle body is going to increase airflow by replacing your smaller factory throttle body with a much larger diameter BBK. When you compare the smaller factory 65 mm throttle body to that 70 mm from BBK, you can see the difference that will allow for more airflow into your engine. In terms of quality and construction, this throttle body is a solid piece. It’s been CNCed from high quality aluminum for a perfect fit and features double sealed bearings, stamped throttle linkage, o-ring throttle shafts, and more. You can run this throttle body bone stock without a tune or an intake and still make more power over your baseline. However, this is one of those mods that works great in conjunction with other supporting mods, especially with other cold intake systems, as some of you on the site have pointed out. Another thing that you on the site have pointed out is that this product installs easily in about 2 hours, even for some of you first-time wrenchers out there. You will need to transfer over both your TPS sensor and your throttle body motor to the new BBK throttle body. After that, it’s simply reinstall in reverse order, plug everything in, and you’re good to go. So if you’re looking to make the most out of your 4 liter V6, then you’ll definitely want to check out this 70 mm throttle body from BBK Performance.

    More Power. Increase the amount of airflow in to your Mustangs 4.0L V6 engine for more horsepower and improved throttle response with a BBK 70mm Throttle Body from AmericanMuscle.

    Quality Construction. This BBK Mustang throttle body is CNC machined from high quality 356 aluminum to ensure OEM quality and a perfect fit. Features like OEM die stamped throttle linkages, double sealed bearings, and o ringed throttle shafts make this throttle body one of best on the market today.

    Application. BBK's 70mm throttle body is designed to be a perfect fit on all 2005 to 2010 4.0L V6 Ford Mustangs.

    Please Note. This BBK brand throttle body reuses the stock throttle body gasket.

    Technical Note. This BBK product is not legal for use in emission restrictive states.

    Does this require a tune I was wondering if this required a tune and also if this would fit with the Airraid CAI?


    • No this does not require a tune. Although a tune would really help you get the most out of this modification. As far as the CAI goes, a lot of people combine this with the BBK CAI and have had no problems. Some people even add a throttle body spacer and have no problems but a very snug fit.

    Will this work with a Throttle body spacer I have a stock throttle body with a Airaid Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer at the moment. Will the 70mm work with myy current setup or will I have to ditch the throttle body spacer.


    • The Airaid throttle body spacer is intended for use with the stock throttle body only, due to the smaller bore sizing matched with stock. When you upgrade your TB to the 70mm, the spacer will actually be more restrictive and block your potential new power. I'd suggest upgrading your TB to this 70mm to get better performance and simply remove the spacer. The TB upgrade will be a better power upgrade over the spacer. Hope this helps!

    How do you adjust the voltage I don't know how to turn the brass screw


    • Hello! While switching over electronics there is a set screw in the new throttle body. You must loosen that and then assemble. Make sure to check the voltage before you take your stock throttle body apart. Then check and adjust with new throttle body, assembled and plugged in, to the same voltage as previous output. Then disassemble and tighten set screw then reassemble. If you take a look at our install guide it explains step by step.

    between this and the other SR intake, which would have more HP gains, or is it the same? whats the difference between the two?


    Can I use a spacer plate with the 70 mm throttle body?


    • A Throttle body spacer will not be able to work with the BBK 70mm Throttle Body or any aftermarket throttle body.

      BBK Throttle Body V6

      I recently purchased this BBK throttle body for my V6 mustang. I am an amatuer when it comes to working on cars so it took me about 1-1/2 hours to install it. However, when I was done I couldn\'t believe the power gain! I think they quote 10 more hp but I swear it was more that I gained. I am waiting for my BBK cold air intake to come tomorrow. Anyone with a V6 who\'s looking for extra power, pick this throttle body up!!!!!

      Pretty f-ing sweet

      Nice machined finish, easy how to list, and man the whistle is sexy man it sounds like my car has a turbo lol. I also got the speda spacer and those bolts that come with it suck they dont fit flush, and cant get a socket in there, so i dremeled the edges of the throttle body a bit and it worked fine!!

      worth the money

      I bought this along with the K&N air intake. The combination of the two increases the pull of you car and makes it sound more like a V8. I am recommending this throttle body to any V6 owner.

      i was amazed at how easy install was. I thought it would be much harder but with the detailed instructions it was a breeze. With the CAI it makes such a sick whistle noise and some hp & tq gains as well. It was a pain to get it to fit with a spacer to but over all a great product and AM shipped it and i got it 2 days after i ordered!! :)

      Great mod

      This is a great upgrade, make sure you get this with a CAI to see true upgrade. Also, be careful taking the T20 screws off of the TAP sensor box, they strip easy, had to take it to an auto shop to have them cut the screws off. Also, the Steeda Spacer is good to buy with this, but just make sure you align it properly on the intake manifold, otherwise, it will not align properly and you could have a gap of air rush out from manifold to throttle body. Definitely noticed a pickup from 1st gear to 2nd and i can feel it really kicked in when I switch to third gear. Very good upgrade and AM as always on point. -Mario

      BBK Throttle-body

      The throttle-body is definetly bigger, throttle response is better even though I installed it with a BBK CAI and a custom tune from Bamachips. The installation was as easy as it gets. I noticed more power off the start but my vehicle threw the angry wrench and an over torque engine code. Used a strategy code with 93 octane and it works just well but SCT has a patch for those wishing to extract more power from the combo. Good product and as usual American Muscle RULES!!!

      More than Problems

      The Throttle Body was easy to install. I felt great pick up until it quit working and gave me the angry wrench. I had three mechanics look at it. They checked the TPS voltage which was correct and they all were stumped on why it was causing the computer to throw codes. I would save the migranes and fustrations and buy something else.

      70mm sucks and whines

      this throttle body whines but so do a lot of after market throttle bodies, it is a good choice I can feel a small something, a dremel helps with the whine a little to smooth out the edges of the intake, and butterfly.

      2007 Mustang V6 -- 70mm TB

      First off, AM did a great job as always on delivering the product on time, and great customer service. However from reading all of the reviews and questions supplied on BBK's 70mm TB I had expected more than what the part has delivered so far. I've spent a few hours trying to fine tune and tweak the part for maximum performance, and it just doesn't seem to have any to give. It does deliver a little kick in the pants, but not enough to justify the price. I've not noticed any whistle thus far too, so any and all reviews have been little or no help to me on this purchase. I'll keep playing with it for the time being, perhaps in time I'll find it's wheelhouse. Bottom Line: What power gains are to be had from this part doesn't truly justify the price. Between a high end tune (Maxed out 93 octane), and a $300 TB I can honestly say I'm driving the same car I was a few days before installation.

      Good product

      Me and my friend just installed the throttle body onto my 2010 mustang. At first it was easy to install but make sure you titan the spring inside or your car will not give any gas. The car does have a nice whistle now but does no where near sound like a I do feel hp gain and tq gain, my car climbs faster just cruising in 2000rpm

      It's alright

      It's rather expensive. I'd almost rather just machine the stock piece and make that bigger. Small HP increase barely noticable but I did get a little better gas mileage so I suppose it will eventually pay for itself.

      Recommended for V6

      Alright. After I got this part installed, it just feels like you have a longer range to accelarate and mentain your engine running whenever you stop hitting the gas I can feel the difference driving now. Having a K&N Typhoon air intake system installed, which I wish AM would have cause it\'s just great, it\'s really working great with the throttle body. It keeps whisteling all the time now! It really complamainted my dual exhaust system as well. I had a problem with fitting my MMS spacer with this throttle body. It didn\'t really fit and BBK customer service suggested that I don\'t use it cause it doesn\'t really have an effect, but I kept it on anyway. In 05 models, stock throttle body has a water circulation at the bottom of it that is not seen in this aftermarket part. It\'s mentioned in the instructions. I had a little hot water shower while installing, thanks to fine print. BE CAREFUL! Over all, I think the gain is not bad, especially if you have other mods installed. I bet I\'m going to really feel a difference after I get my tuner and custom tune my V6 sometime soon. Thanks AM

      I noticed a slight gain not much though, I currently only have this mod and BBK CAI w/o tune so it is understandable that any gains will be negligible right now. Only issue was after install I had this annoying whistle around 2.5k RPM (I don\'t have the spacer on since it didn\'t seem to fit the larger TB but the whistle sounded nothing like a turbo it was incredibly irritating). Anyway just for the benefit of anyone considering this TB, you may have to do some sanding/dremeling of the intake plenum where the TB fits to smooth the edge otherwise the sharp edge may cause turbulence and the annoying whistle. You can read about this problem on

      Works better when packaged with other parts

      I purchased this for my 2010 v6 and was happy with the results. I had some gain in hp and fuel milage but nothing to really rave about. What really kicked it into gear was when I packaged it with a S&B cold air intake, Steeda throttle body spacer, JET performance chip, screamin demon coil, live wires, E3 spark plugs, and Pypes mid muffler dual exhaust. I know it sounds like a lot but I believe its better to do it this way so you can feel the power gains all at once.

      Easy to install

      Easy to install, instructions are ok. The install video needs to be updated or a new one added for the BBK TB used on the V6. As far as performaence its to early to tell, just put it on about an hour ago. Very little drive time but I can tell there is improvment in throttle responce at the low end. This is a must have for the V6.

      Not as good as you might think

      This product seems flashy, but it's not worth it even with the tiny power gains you notice/mpg increase. Also, BBK has the absolute worst customer service i have ever dealt with, totally unreliable. In my opinion buy a tuner (SCT) or a cold air intake. American Muscle is an amazing supplier though, buy something else they offer for the V6/GT

      Everything else I have purchased from American Muscle has been great but the BBK Throttle Body just didn't work.

      I have a great mechanic and he figured he must not have installed it correctly so he went to AM to find out and they confirmed he hooked it up correctly. The engine stalled out every time after giving it some gas so he consulted some blogs and found a ton of them all relating to how the BBK either worked or didn't with no rhyme or reason as to why. Some advice was to forget what AM and Ford says on the install which we tried and that din't work either. There is enough negative internet blog feedback on this BBK V6 Throttle body where I find it REALLY hard to believe that AM doesn't know about it and I think AM needs to evaluate keeping it on as a purchase option until it is solved.
