    Hey everybody, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and this is my detailed look at BBK's 85 and 90mm Throttle Body options fitting your 2015 and newer Mustang GT. The BBK throttle body options are going to be for any S550 GT owner out there who is looking for every last bit of power out of their naturally aspirated or forced induction five liter setup. Let's face it guys, your motors are essentially glorified air pumps. Their job, to move air in and out as quickly and efficiently as possible, making you go faster in the process. Now certain parts will help your efficiency more than others. For instance, a set of long tube patterns will be a little bit more beneficial in the quest for big power than say an aftermarket axle back exhaust system for instance. But both are going to be critical when you start making some big power. That being said, a throttle body is going to be one of those parts that's not going to make a ton of power on its own, but will be beneficial when the quest for more power starts getting a little bit more real. The factory GT throttle body is 80mm, guys. So BBK is giving you the option of stepping up either five or ten additional millimeters in diameter, depending on your application. Now a quick rule of thumb, I always like to recommend the 85mm option for naturally aspirated setups. While the 90mm option would be a perfect addition to any forced induction setup, whether you're going centrifugal blower or turbo application. Breaking down the construction a little bit, guys, here's what you're going to be looking at. Now high quality, 356 grade CNCed aluminium for pretty much the entire body. We were lucky enough to take a tour of the BBK facilities down in southern California. We've seen how these things take shape, and let me just tell you, it's very impressive. The throttle body essentially starts out life as a hunk of aluminium and then it's CNCed down to the final product you see here. One thing I do want to point out, BBK utilizes Ford OEM electronics for their drive by wire stuff, everything is pre-wired, ready to go, plug and play application here. You're not going to have to worry about a third party electronics or anything goofy with that. Now this is a no tune required part, meaning guys you can plug this thing in and go without the use of a custom tune. That's never a bad idea, that's always going to maximize your potential. Comparing this price-wise to other options on the market right now is kind of tough, because honestly, there's not a lot available for the S550 GT. That being said, you're going to be dropping around 500 bones for the BBK throttle body option, which might seem a little steep for some of you guys at home. But when you're trying to squeeze every last bit of power out of your setup, you have to pay to play. Switching gears to the install here, guys. Very simple stuff. You're looking at a one out of three wrench job, on my overall difficulty meter. Maybe 30 minutes to an hour in the garage or driveway to get everything knocked out. Basically if you're a first time wrencher out there, don't be afraid of this one. Only four bolts holding the throttle body onto your intake manifold. So grab yourself a basic socket set, a few extensions, and a flathead screwdriver to remove your intake from the actual throttle body. You're not going to have to totally remove the intake from the car, but just enough so you can gain access to the four bolts here. BBK does include brand new hardware for the new throttle body. So again, remove that factory throttle body, reinstall the new BBK in reverse order, and you should be good to go. All right guys, to wrap this one up here. In my opinion, a throttle body shouldn't be the first place you go in looking for more power out of your ride, because honestly, there are more gains to be had using different modifications for around the same price point. That being said, once you tackle all those basic modifications and you are looking for more power, an aftermarket throttle body from BBK will help you achieve more power through your naturally aspirated or forced induction setup when compared to your factory throttle body. So to learn more about the BBK options for your ride, be sure to check them out right here at AmericanMuscle.com

    Power Gains. Replace your Coyote powered Mustang's restrictive factory 80mm throttle body with a brand new BBK Power Plus Series Throttle Body that features a generous, free flowing 85mm single bore design. With this simple direct bolt-on you can expect to see gains of up to 8 to 12 horse power at the rear wheels.

    No Tune Required. Unlike other Throttle Bodies on the market today for the 2015-2017 GT Mustangs the BBK Throttle Body does not require a computer re-tune. The engineers at BBK really did their homework to improve your Pony's power using the factory tune.

    Quality Construction. Designed and manufactured in the USA, this BBK Power Plus Series Mustang Throttle Body is fully CNC machined from high quality 356 aluminum castings. It is then assembled with brand new components that are engineered to meet and exceed OEM quality standards for a perfect fit. 

    Easy Bolt-On Installation. Designed for a straight forward installation, this BBK Performance Throttle Body features brand new pre-installed electronics making it a simple, no-hassle go fast upgrade with no tuning required for operation.

    Recommended Upgrade. Even though a re-tune is not required for operation, AmericanMuscle recommends a Bama Custom Tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU). This will help you get the best performance possible out of your new BBK Performance Throttle Body.

    Application. This BBK Power Plus Series 85mm Throttle Body is specifically designed to fit the 2015 to 2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the 4V 5.0L Coyote V8 engine.

    Can I use the factory bolts?

    thewhitecoyote

    • The BBK 85mm Throttle Body will use longer bolts for proper installation as the throttle body is wider than factory. However, the BBK Throttle Body comes with the aftermarket bolts included for installation.

    • The BBK 85mm Throttle Body will be too large to allow the OEM plastic air intake to stretch over properly, and would require an aftermarket CAI with a rubber or silicone coupler.

    Silly questions from a novice... I have a 2017 Auto Mustang GT with minimal mods. (oil/air seprator, hood struts, GT350 start/stop button, shifter) 1. Is there a spacer that would fit the 85mm TB? 2. If there were a spacer, would it atomize the fuel more efficiently for a more consitent burn and increased mpg?

    BritneyJ

    • We currently do not have a throttle body spacer that would properly fit this BBK 85mm Throttle Body or any 85mm throttle body for that matter. The throttle body or spacer would not atomize the fuel more efficiently as it is only allowing a high volume of air to pass through the throttle body at a given time.

      Great Mod

      Pretty easy install. Was a little nervous but anyone with any mechanical ability can do this Mod pretty quick. Added the BBK cold air intake to go along with this and the car feels so much quicker. Throttle response is much much better also.

      Great bolt on upgrade

      This took all of 20 minutes to install and coupled with an upgraded exhaust, CAI and Bama tune, the difference is immediately felt. If you're planning to upgrade your exhaust and CAI, adding a larger throttle body will allow your car to breathe that much easier so you can take full advantage. If you're doing all three, exhaust, cai, and tb, you'll definitely want to retune the car to take full advantage, but this TB adds the right amount of air increase if you're not planning to put on a supercharger.

      Very Satisfied

      Added an Airaid Cold Air Intake and this 85mm Throtle body this weekend. Install was very easy for both. Shifts from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd are much smoother now, this was my main reason for buying and trying it. All gears are much smoother to engage now and the overall drivability has been increased, rev matching seems smoother as well. Throttle response is much faster when I get on the gas pedal and yes i feel more torque and horsepower, a good bit too. I have no tune and Ford Racing Cat Back. I would say this is closer to the 5.0 should have come off the shelf. Next is blowfish shifter bracket and carbon fiber driveshaft.

      Well worth the money!

      What a difference the BBK 85mm throttle body has made. For all you people that already got a tune along with a cold air intake, adding this along with a re-tune really woke up the Coyote engine even more. Couldn't believe how more responsive the car has become. I highly recommend this.

      The BBK experience

      Well just placed both throttle body 85mm and cold air intake from BBK without being tuned. Better response more power will know better with Dyno but for now is better. My 2017 Mustang Gt will be getting a tune with a 91 octane I'm keeping things naturally aspirated. Thanks AM

      Very nice product

      Only took 30min., the cold air tube was tight but with a bar of soap and cup of water no problem. When you get one side on use a pair of channel locks to lightly grab the other side to help slip it in. Once it's on very nice fit. Very noticeable in throttle responce. Exhaust, cold air and a race tune, I thought was the great combo to go with throttle body. Would do a wipple asap if had no warrenty.

      Throttle Response!!

      This is advertised as 8 to 12 hp and maybe so with a stock intake but with my Steeda intake and 93 octane tune, it feels like closer to 20 hp. Throttle response is awesome and the car pulls much harder through the gears. You cannot go wrong with this piece!

      Just what she needed!

      Have a 15' GT Performance Pack Coupe. Already have Roush Cold Air, accell coils, x pipe and ford performance axle backs. She need just a bit more, so after the Bama tune, I installed the 85mm BBK throttle body. All I can say is WOW!! What a difference! Just what she needed to complete the mission I set out to accomplished.

      THROTTLE RESPONSE!!!!!!!!!

      I was a little concerned at first with how downplayed this add on was in regards to the horsepower gains for the amount of money it cost. I have added it with the Jlt Cai, 3 inch pipe and a tune. This mustang now has crazy throttle response, there is no lag period and it now throws you in your seat. Very pleased.

      Adds performance.

      Excellent product to my 2017 GT. Ran into an issue during install, wiring harness connected to the stock throttle body would not release once you pulled the small red tab on the side of the throttle body, took a considerable amount of time to get a screwdriver inside of it to depress it in order to disconnected from the stock throttle body. Other then that, install when quickly. Joe

      Prior to installing the bbk throttle body my car had a cold air intake Roush exhaust x pipe and a 93 octane tune. After installing the throttle body it woke my car up so much wasn’t expecting that much power. It pulls so much harder than before, definitely a must buy!

      A great upgrade for your S550. if you are naturally aspirated the 85 mm is perfect. If you are supercharged you may want to step up to the 90mm.
