Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

What's going on guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com. This is my quick review and breakdown of the BBK 73 Millimeter Throttle Body fitting the 2011 through 2016 3.5-liter F-150 EcoBoost. So in this video, I'm going to talk about what you can expect in terms of performance gains as well as hitting on the installation a little bit later in the video. But right off the bat I'm going to be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You should have this on your truck in about 30 minutes to an hour tops. So this is going to be for the EcoBoost truck owner that's looking to make their engine breathe a little bit more effectively as well as create horsepower, torque, as well as some much-needed noise under the hood. Now if we're going to be pairing this with an after-market cold air intake, all of these gains are going to be that much more amplified. All right guys, so right off the bat I want to mention that this part alone is not going to yield that high of gains and you should be looking at single digit numbers. But if you're looking to increase the horsepower that much more I would definitely suggest pairing this with a cold air intake as well as a hand-held tuner to maximize the gains of your EcoBoost. So taking a look at the construction here guys, BBK is going to have this made up of 356 grade aluminum that's going to be then CNC'd to make sure that you're going to have a perfect fit as well as finish on your EcoBoost F-150. So this throttle body is going to feature OEM dye stamp linkages, double sealed bearings as well as having O-ring throttle shafts. Now this is going to work very, very well with the late model drive-by-wire Ford F-150s. Now taking a look at the pricing here guys we're going to see that this is going to fall in line right around the $400 price range which is typically what you're going to be spending for a throttle body. So for the money here you're going to be increasing your throttle response, horsepower, torque, as well as picking up a little bit of noise under hood. My opinion, it's definitely a great bang for the buck here for what you're getting. So just to hit this home again guys you're going to be getting away with a quality made part that's more than likely going to outlast your factory unit as well as being able to pair with a cold air intake down the road, which is going to help increase your gains in the long run. So like I said in the beginning of the video, the installation in this throttle body is going to be a very easy, one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and you should have this on your truck in about 30 minutes to an hour tops with only some basic hand tools. So you're essentially just going to need to just disconnect your battery, pull a few hoses, loosen some clamps, replace your factory unit with the upgraded unit, and you're good to go. All right guys, so just to wrap things up here, I really like this option from BBK. Not only based on the fact that this aftermarket unit is more than likely going to outlast your OE unit but as well as creating more horsepower, torque, throttle response, and a little bit more noise under the hood. Especially when you're going to be pairing this with a cold air intake or a tune down the road. So that's my review and install for the BBK 73 Millimeter Throttle Body fitting the 2011 through 2016 F-150 EcoBoost available right here at americanmuscle.com

  • While this part may be a good fit on a 3.5l V6 NA engine, it is only designed and a guaranteed fit on a 3.5l ecoboost engine.

    Awesome part

    I had heard I would need to reprogram my computer. Turns out, if you read up on it the computer will do the hard part. All you have to do is erase it. Less than one hour and it ran perfect. Full intake and exhaust next!

    Added performance...

    The throttle was much more responsive than the OME, and had no issues in passing at highway speeds... Very good product!
