    Hey, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I'm taking a closer look at BBK's 73mm Throttle Body, fitting the Drive-by-Wire 3.7 L V6, found in all 2011 and newer V6 Mustangs. The basic function of this Throttle Body is to allow more air into your engine, by replacing your smaller diameter 68mm factory Throttle Body with this larger 73mm unit. Now ultimately you can expect a small bump in power and throttle response. Taking a closer look at the throttle body, you can see that it's been designed and built very well. The body is cast from 356 grade aluminum, and all the internals have been strengthened and gone over as well. A real nice feature of this BBK Throttle Body is that it already includes all of your Drive-by-Wire electronics, which have been pre-installed for you. This makes this a 100% Plug-n-Play bolt-on-and-go mod. Now you can run this Throttle Body bone-stock without a tune or an intake, and still make more power, but this is one of those mods that's greatly benefit from other supporting mods, such as Cold Air Intake Systems, Headers Exhaust, and especially a tune. Another benefit of using this BBK is the ease of install. Now since it already includes all of your Drive-By-Wire electronics, as I already pointed out, you literally unbolt your factory Throttle Body, unplug the sensor, and then re-install the new BBK in reverse order. Doing all of this should take you no more than an hour. So if you're looking to make the most out of your 3.7 L V6, and to complement your other Bolt-Ons, then be sure to check out this 73mm BBK Throttle Body, 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 73mm 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 15HP.

    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.

    CARB Certified. Best of all, this BBK Throttle Body is 50 State Legal for the 2011-2014 Model Years under CARB EO Number: D-245-17.

    Application. This BBK Power Plus Series 73mm Throttle Body is specifically designed to fit the 2011 to 2017 V6 Mustangs with the 3.7L TiVCT V6 engine.

    Will this work with the JLT Intake? I have a JLT Intake on my 2012 V6 and I am looking into getting this throttle body, and wasn't sure if it would fit right or if i needed to change/modify the piping that came with the Intake.

    Will this fit with an Air Raid CAI? I already have a Air Raid CAI for the 2012 V6. I am wondering if it is possible to add this as well. I understand it may be difficult, but I would surely purchase if I knew it is possible. Thanks

    Will I need to update my tune for this?

    2012v6OKLAstanglover

    • This BBK TB does not require a tune after installation. However, getting a tune will offer you the best performance from the upgrade! If you already have Bama tunes (even if you didn't have a tuner/tunes yet), I'd highly recommend getting updated tune files to include this TB. Your engine will be getting increased air flow and letting your computer know that will only help improve power!

    Stock 68mm to this 73mm. That is only 5mm more. Is that miniscule amount really going to give gains of 15HP? I doubt it..

    Renownedd

    • This alone will not gain upwards of 15 HP. As stated in the video above, this working in unison with other supporting mods will give you a larger increase in power.

    Is there a throttle body spacer that is available that will work with this throttle body?

    Staung

    • If you are looking for a throttle body spacer that will work with the BBK 73mm Throttle Body (11-17 V6), look no further than the SR Performance Throttle Body Spacer (11-17 V6) item #41337 (www.americanmuscle.com/sr-throttle-body-spacer-1114v6.html). This spacer connects directly to the throttle body to give your Mustang more power by increasing plenum volume.

      Great Buy

      With no mechanical experience I was able to change not only the throttle body but the JLT cold air intake I bought with this in under 45 min. My mustang went from having a flat sound to having a nice bite when she goes, which I like. It took some time for the car to adjust to the amount of air it was taking in, but once it did I got about 15hp from the throttle body alone. In addition to the 15-20 from the cold air intake. Very happy with the buy, great bang for your buck and nicely packaged.

      Amazing

      Fast shipping and pretty simple to put on if you have the tools. Allen wrench is needed, I had to go around the neighbor hood in order to find one. Fits with Rousch CAI. Sound change wasn't crazy but was noticeable, response time was better, tuner next!

      I love it. I can definitely feel an improvement in torque and launching and the response is definitely there. I love opening my hood to look at that stamped throttle body it gives it a bit of a dress up look.. overall I'm extremely happy with the product.

      10 minute install, improved HP slightly - enuff to make the purchase worth while, quicker accelerator response, I was expecting a larger horsepower increase, (where is the 300HP Ford rated this motor/ vehicle?)

      Nice Improvement

      The product arrived in about three days and looked as described in the advertisement. After installing with a cold air intake, the car has more power and better throttle response throughout most of the RPM range. Comes on noticeably above around 3300 rpm and definitely makes the car more fun to drive. No hit on mileage either. After initial "fun-time", mileage actually went up about 1 - 1.5 mpg (surprisingly, although it might be my driving). I do recommend this product, not cheap, but what is these days.

      Great addition!!

      A little pricey but definitely worth it, you get what you pay for this bolt on takes 15 minutes to install and you instantly feel a difference. Throttle response is so much better and the exhaust has a deeper sound to it under WOT. I would reccomend this product to everyone!

      BBK 73mm Throttle Body

      I bought this TB because of the stock TB would stick closed or oprn (it could not make up it mind which) and would go into limp mode which would not move the car. I installed the BBK and didn't even drive 50 miles and had the same failure. I doubt it is the BBK TB but another electrical problem that Ford is not talking about or does not know about. I took the car to the Ford dealer and they could not duplicate the problem and I have not had the issue since. Time will tell. So I do not know how to really evaluate this TB since I had the problem after installing it. I have not talked to BBK about the problem yet too many things going on right now.

      Great mod for power

      Looked online for a improvement in throttle responds and power, stubbled across this and boy does it not disappoint. Exactly an hour to put on in the garage. You can fill the power and hear a difference in the exhaust. Matched it with a custom tune on my sct tunner and KandN CAI. Tremendous difference in my ride. Highly Recommend

      The BBB 73mm throttle body is a must have bolt on for the V6 mustang. Very simple to install and you can definitely feel the difference. It feels better when you get a tune, but there is still a difference without one. Overall, great product.

      No Gain At All

      I have it with a Airaid cold air intake and a Bama 93 Octane race tune and the car still only puts out the baseline 261 RHP on the dyno. That is the same horsepower that AM got from a compete stock 3.7. Each of these items were shown on AM videos to add HP, and if you added it up, it would be around 30 to 35 HP. Well for a $1000.00 my car sounds better, but nothing else got better.

      Excellent Upgrade For My V6!

      This product was extremely easy to install and made some quite noticeable changes to my 2011 Mustang V6. For starters, I noticed that the overall sound produced from my car was considerably lower in tone and it now has a very nice purr to it. I also noticed (obviously) much better throttle response meaning much better pulls. One thing that most definitely changed was the sound of my engine/exhaust when driving and increasing RPM's (accelerating). The sound now stays consistently low in tones instead of its previous sound of rasp when climbing RPM's. Overall the sound of my car was greatly improved. The car also feels as if it has more power (probably the slight horsepower increase showing). The ONLY PROBLEM I have is that after I installed the new throttle body, the idle of my car is now lower (around 650) meaning that when I am sitting in park, the car is much quieter. Unfortunately I could not find a way to adjust the idle but i'm sure it can be done. Overall, a great product worth looking into!

      Not the greatest but it's different

      The throttle is a lot more responsive but if you want more power you should spend your money on something else.
