    Hey guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with the BBK 85mm Throttle Body for 2011-2014 GT's and 2012-2013 Boss Mustangs. The BBK 85mm Throttle Body is going to be for the Mustang owners out there that already have some supporting mods and want to make sure that they're allowing as much air as possible to get to the motor. A throttle body isn't a mod that's going to add a ton of horsepower by itself; it usually works best when you've already started modding and need to make sure that the throttle body isn't acting as a bottleneck anymore. What you're really going to notice with a throttle body is more along the lines of throttle response, and not so much horsepower and torque gains. Most people tend to think that bigger is better when it comes to modding and that isn't always the case, especially when it comes to an item like a throttle body. Bigger does cost more, but the fact is that mildly modified or stock Mustangs do not have enough airflow to fully benefit from the larger throttle body, and if this is the case, then installing the biggest throttle body is only going to hurt performance and reduce throttle response. The current mods and the goals that you have planned for your car are going to determine which throttle body you will need, so you can utilize a bigger throttle body for more airflow and improve throttle response. The GT and Boss came from the factory with an 80mm throttle body, so bumping up to this 85 is opening up some airflow without a doubt. Just compare the 85 to your stock throttle body and you'll notice a difference. But if you've got a car with some big mods or a forced-induction car, BBK does have a 90mm option. Just keep in mind that bigger isn't always better, and that you want to make sure that you actually need the 90mm so you won't be hurting performance. You also have to keep in mind that there is a pretty big price difference between the two options. So, just like your basic bolt-on modification, neither of these throttle bodies require a tune to run or work on the car, but I will say that a tune will definitely help to get the most results out of the throttle body. The throttle body's going to be a lot like a cold-air intake in the sense that it helps the car for sure, but you're not really going to notice any more horsepower as you're driving along. What you will notice, however, is going to be improved throttle response. Looking at these guys a little bit more, this is a CNC-machined, 356-grade, aluminum body. Now, BBK promises an OEM quality and a perfect fit, and right now I can tell you that it does look like OEM quality, and we're going to install this here in a minute so we can talk about the fit then. The throttle body also has some other great quality and some beefed up components. I'm talking about things like OEM die-stamped throttle linkages and double-sealed bearings, and these are things you like to see on an aftermarket throttle body. I mentioned the 90mm option from BBK earlier, and this is the largest available option for the stock intake manifold at this time. Ford Racing does also offer a 90mm option as well, but it's a little bit more expensive and you do have to purchase an aftermarket adapter plate in order to run it, whereas both BBK options are a straight bolt-on. This means that they already include all the necessary drive-by wire electronics, so it's going to be ready to go right out of the box. I'm going to keep with what I said and still say that this is a basic bolt-on. It's going to be a one out of three wrenches on the scale and should take about an hour to complete. You will need a few different socket sizes, a ratchet, and a 5mm Allen wrench. BBK suggests you reuse the stock throttle body gasket so that's what we're going to do with our car here today, but you can always pick up a new gasket easily if you don't want to reuse yours. There are a few things that you'll have to get out of the way before you start the install, like removing the strut tire brace if you have one, and the engine cover, and also disconnect the negative battery cable while you're at it. You can leave the sound tube on the inlet tube and leave it connected, but disconnect the smaller breather tube from the air inlet tube. The air inlet tube will need to come off and be set aside so you can get to the throttle body. There are only four bolts for the throttle body, so back those out, and as you remove the throttle body, flip it to unplug the throttle position sensor on the bottom. If you're reusing the stock throttle body gasket, remove any oil or debris and then ready the new BBK Throttle Body by first clipping in the TPS under the bottom. Use the supplied bolts to bolt the new throttle body up, reinstall the air inlet tube, and connect the breather tube. Tighten down all of the clamps, reinstall the engine cover and strut tire brace and after that, all that's left is reconnecting the negative battery cable. Wrapping things up here, the BBK 85mm Throttle Body is made from a high-quality aluminum casting. It will allow for more air flow and it's a direct bolt-on install that doesn't require any tuning. All of the electronics are pre-installed and the throttle body is ready to bolt on from the box; you don't need to purchase anything extra to make it work. You can check this throttle body out, along with the 90mm throttle body, online and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Excellent Performance Gains. Replace your restrictive factory throttle body with a BBK Power Plus Series Throttle body that features a generous, free flowing 85mm bore design. It is a simple, direct bolt-on install that does not require any computer tuning to enjoy the newly discovered power you have put on your drive-by-wire pony. Expect to see gains of up to 10-15HP and 20-25 TQ.

    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.

    Bolt-On Installation. The BBK Throttle Body is designed for a straightforward installation and features pre-installed electronics making it a no-hassle go fast upgrade with no tune required.

    Application. This BBK Power Plus Series 85mm Throttle Body is specifically designed to fit the 2011 to 2014 GT Mustangs with the 4V 5.0L Coyote V8 engine.

    85mm or 90mm ?? I plan to throw on these mods on my 2012 GT in this order: 1. Bama Tuner, 2. Airaid CAI, 3. BOSS Intake Manifold. Then for the last bolt on mod i would like either a BBK 85mm throttle body or the 90mm. Which one would be the best purchase in this particular case? I don't want to over-do it with a 90mm if that is too large for these mods.

    • I did the exact same thing to my 2012 GT in that order. You are right the 90mm is a little over kill from all the research I did unless you plan on a supercharger later. You are going to love it when you get done!

    Do i need to inform bama if I add Throttle body My car is customed tuned with sct tuner, from American Muscle. If I add throttle body, do I need to retune? Thanks

    • You don't need a tune with this throttle body; however, a custom tune will definitely help you get the most power out of the upgrade. If you already have the Free Tunes for Life since you purchased the tuner from us, I highly recommend that you give us a call so we can update your tune!

    • Considering your modifications the 85mm BBK throttle body would be perfect!

      Nice

      Bought this with the boss intake. I was already running a 95 mm maf and cai from candl so I wanted to maintain the size through the throttle body into the intake, as opposed to creating a bottleneck. Simple installation. Truly plug and play. It's hard to say what difference the 85 mm made, but overall after a 93 octane race tune, the car runs amazing. Throttle response is immediate and smooth. The car loves this setup. Can't go wrong with bbk anyway, just get it.

      Makes a bigger difference than you would think!

      Perfect for NA applications, increased flow without losing velocity of air intake or adding the turbulence of the 90mm that does not quite fit the inlet... Made a difference that could be felt instantly and had the quality fit and finish that I have come to expect from BBK nothing but the best!

      I've heard such good things...

      I've had issues with it not fitting the harness plug due to a bend in the black plastic female plug around the throttle body its self. But installation was easy. I'm having sticking issues when coming off the throttle and this annoying whistling on even the slightest touch of the gas pedal. This is the second bbk product I've purchased with fitment issues. I think I've had enough with bbk.

      Didn’t work with stock plug!

      I installed this throttle body in my new boss 302 intake. I take my stock plug and try to plug it in, and it wouldn’t stay in the wiring harnesses. I call bbk and they say they don’t have plugs for their throttle bodies. Asked if they knew a place I could get one. They said they don’t know where to get one! I’m sending it back to AM and getting a refund. I will not be buying anything from bbk!!!!

      Solid Product

      Had to install a new throttle body due to the bad design of the stock throttle body on my 2013. Before I took my car to a shop did my research on what I thought was the problem, they agreed it was my throttle body, they wanted $600 1.9 hours of installation and $400 for the stock part. Ya, no thanks. Took me and my friend ~30 min to install. After installing it runs a lot better and very very satisfied with this purchase. 10/10 would recommend.

      Couldn't be more happy with this product. Overall install time was less than 30 minutes and the throttle response changed drastically for the better. Really impressed with the control I have now and when I added this in with a Steeda Cold Air intake and BAMA tune the coyote motor really woke up.

      The Awakening

      Installed the new 85mm throttle body and a new CandL MAF,, my Stang woke up even more. Throttle response is quicker and the pull from 2k rpm to WFO is awesome. Hazed the tires from 1st thru 4th gears. Still need to put my BBK headers and catted X pipe on,, gona have to learn to drive it all over again. Get buy for the money, would recommend to anyone. Great job AM, as always your always on point with your recommendations. Had a problem with the install because I had already put the 1 inch spacer in before the new throttle body. The bolts that came with the spacer will not work with the new 85 mm throttle body because of the design of the throttle body where the bolts go in. Had to go to John Deere and get 3 in. long bolts with the Allen head and #6 metric thread in order to get the throttle body on. After that hiccup,, went together great and was worth the $12 for the bolts. Would recommend that AM advise anyone in the above situation of what to expect or provide the above referenced bolts in the package for installation.

      BBK 85mm with Typhoon 69 K N

      Was impressed with the power of both changed the acceleration of my car, low end and pulls more top end. I preferred doing both mods cause I think it's the right the to do especially adding a throttle body u benefit much more cause your opening up the size of the mouth of your engine, just adding a CAI creates velocity but not volume in my own opinion cause the mouth is only a certain size of your engine . I didn't buy the 90 mm cause I thought it was over kill for the bolt on.
