What's going on, guys? Adam here with AmericanMuscle.com, and today I'm bringing you my detailed overview of the Ford Racing Twin 62mm Throttle Body, fitting all '05 to '10 Mustang GTs. If you're the owner of an '05 to '10 Mustang GT and you wanna get rid of that restrictive stock 55-millimeter throttle body, when you have something set up like turbos or cams or even an intake manifold, you might wanna think about getting a twin-bore 62-millimeter throttle body from a trusted name like Ford Racing.This is definitely gonna be a little more beneficial for the guys running a forced induction setup on their '05 to '10 GTs, something like a turbo, supercharger, or even nitrous, but I definitely don't wanna count out the naturally aspirated builds as well. Now, if you decide to run this throttle body on a naturally aspirated three-valve motor, you can definitely reap the benefits if you're heavily modified, something like cams or an intake manifold. Now, for you heavily modified or forced induction S197 owners out there, this throttle body offers a 62-millimeter twin-bore design to maximize air flow. It also offers a CNC-machined, high-quality built aluminum finish with a bright chrome finish on top with the Ford Racing logo engraved in it.So this throttle body from Ford Racing comes fully assembled right out of the box. It offers the TPS, or throttle position sensor, the actuator motor, and it reuses the factory OE gears to prevent gear bind, which is common in a lot of aftermarket throttle bodies. Ford Racing even temperature tested this to hold up to the OEM specifications directly from Ford because you know it can get dangerously hot under the hood, especially with the modified setups.Now, far as performance gains go, you can expect a better overall air flow when upgrading to the twin 62mm bore I have here because overall airflow can in turn lead to more power. Now, with that said, you will see a slight difference in throttle response, but overall you don't wanna expect crazy power gains, unless you're running a big boost setup. Speaking of performance, this is definitely gonna reap the benefits of a performance-tune if you have one. Now, I know a lot of times I said this is for a heavily-modified Mustang owner, so if you are a heavily-modified Mustang owner, I'm sure you already have a tuner. But if not, you would definitely want to invest in getting a custom tune to maximize the performance gains out of this throttle body.Now, as far as price goes for a throttle body of this size, it can really range, depending on the brand on the market. It can go anywhere from about $280 all the way up to about $600. This one here falls at the higher end, almost at $600, but that is to be expected from Ford Racing, considering you are getting a good-quality part from a really trusted name brand. One thing I do wanna point out when talking about price, I know the $600 can sound pretty pricey to some of you guys out there, but I do wanna keep in mind that I did say earlier this is a fully-assembled, right-out-of-the-box bolt-on part. Some of the other brands, such as BBK, will require you to take apart your stock throttle body and reuse some of the parts there. So if you're not looking to do that, you might wanna think about spending that extra money to get the trusted Ford Racing that a lot of people crave when shopping for performance parts.A throttle body is really one of the simplest mods you can do. It's a direct bolt-on that doesn't take a lot of know-how. You'll just be unclamping the cold air intake from the stock throttle body and unbolting that from the manifold. Once you get that unbolted, you can swap them out and put everything back together. Start to finish, you'll be looking at spending just about an hour on the install, and I would definitely give it a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter.Just to quickly wrap things up, guys, if you're looking to replace that restrictive stock 55-millimeter throttle body on your '05 to '10 GT that's heavily modified, you might wanna look into getting the Ford Racing Twin 62mm Throttle Body right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Technical Note. 62mm bore throttle bodies work great on heavily modified or force inducted GT mustangs, stock or mildly modified GT's do not flow air enough to benefit from this larger Throttle Body.

Zero effort project. Swapped out easily and intuitively in just a couple minutes: Less than a half hour total including loading the revised tune. I do wish that it had come with a new gasket, though.Helpful (0)

Super easy install and looks amazing under the hood. It’s a much larger throttle body than the stock one and you can feel the difference. I definitely recommend picking this up especially if you have the hot rod cams.Helpful (1)

Beautiful Throttle Body
My vote is it would be foolish to go with another one. Yes, this is more expensive, but please realize that it is PLUG AND PLAY. Detailed process right here - Unhook your Cold Air Intake (I put in the Roush one) so this was simple. There are four screws holding the stock one, one on each corner. Boom, wiggle it off. (Of course remember to unhook your sensors) Unlike other throttle bodies, no need to assemble anything. Literally, clean your manifold, and wiggle the new one on. Connect the sensors. screw it in. Go in a diagonal manner so you tighten it down evenly. Reconnect the CAI, flash your tune. Could not be any simpler. This was my first tune with the car, that definitely plays a big factor. However, throttle response is amazing. instant. Definitely took some time to "remaster" my clutch work. Considering I have stock exhaust, and these two mods and a tune made it sound beautiful, I would say it is worth it. Don't skimp out on your baby. Go rousch, go ford performance. These are quality products!!Helpful (3)

Good bolt on
So needless to say I was abit skeptical on spending 600 on this but the quality beats any other throttle body for the s197 3 valve. Installation was 20 minutes and a quick 93 octane race tune throttle response was better for sure seems more smooth definitely noticed more bottom end out of the hole. I’m sure with more mods the throttle body will do justice I’m currently only running exhaust,intake,tune and this throttle bodyHelpful (3)

Very cool upgrade!
I purchased this at AM.com last month and the first one arrived wirh the throttle idler cap broken (thanks UPS) so i spoke to several people at AM to try to get another one ASAP and I really need to say their customer service people should train all others. I'm 60 years old now and have dealt with 100's of customer service people over time and these guys are in a league all their own!! Anyway, got the new TB, not only is it a nice piece of eye candy, but it definitely increased my throttle response and threw in a few ponies (dyno youtube vids show around 20 add'l hp) to my superchsrged Roush 427R with a really nice Brenspeed 490hp custom tune hopefully clearing 500 hp to the fly now. Very happy with the 30 minute remove the old stock 58mm TB and install the beautiful 62mm Performance TB. I think it's well worth the premium price tag considering what the competition has to offer.

I highly recommend this part.
Initially I ordered the cheaper SR twin throttle body but had a ton of issues with it. It threw my car into failsafe mode multiple times and was rev-hanging so I returned it and went with this one. This one is obviously more expensive, but to me it was worth the extra money to avoid the hassle.Helpful (0)

Throttle body upgrade
My girl (Sally) is much happier. Sounds better, responds quicker, and lays more rubber. Even gets better MPG on Sundays. Thou shalt not race on the Sabbath, unless you absolutely have to. Easy to install.Helpful (0)
The info states Tune Required, exactly what does that mean? My 05 motor is basically stock with the exception of a C L cold air, JBA shorty headers, Magnaflow TruX crossover pipe and Corsa catbacks. I would also like to install a Procharger.
A custom tune will be required after installing this throttle body.
What kind of gains should I expect pairing this and a ford racing intake manifold? I have a bama tune, airaid CAI, off road h/pipe, magnaflow exhaust, 3.73 gears
With those modifications you would be looking to gain 5-8RWHP out of this Ford Performance Twin 62mm Throttle Body (05-10 GT), however that number would continue to climb with additional bolt ons, and even more so once introduced to a boosted application.
The information on this part states that this to be used on "Heavily Modified" Mustang GTs. I have small mods at this time (Ford Racing CAI, Ford Exhaust (Cat Back), Hurst Shift Kit and not sure if this would be worthwhile except for the looks and for possible future modifications that I do. What does "Heavily Modified' exactly mean? Would I gain anything with this part and the custom tune that would be required?
You may not benefit from this Throttle Body with the modifications that you have done. Heavy modifications would include a full exhaust, injectors, spark plugs, and even forced induction. You can add this Throttle Body to your car, but you may not see any gain at all.
Would this work well with my Kenne Bell twin screw? Car is on its way to the dyno next month and wanted to upgrade the tb. Is this the one to go with my KB supercharger? Estimated gains?
This Ford Performance Twin 62mm Throttle Body (05-10 GT) is only designed to be a bolt on to the GT model Mustang. We have not tested this part with a Kenne Bell supercharger and will not be able to guarantee fitment.
Will this fit on my ford performance whipple charger?
This will work great with boosted applications.
While we don't have a specific number in terms of power gained, using this with the Ford Performance High Performance Intake Manifold would offer performance and sounds increase.
No, this throttle body is a direct replacement for the stock GT part. It's a direct bolt-on.
Yes, they will indeed be compatible with each other.
This intake will increase the power of the car and numbers will all depend on what tune you will be running.
We would strongly recommend not driving without a new/updated tune after installing this, it may cause serious engine damage.
Yes, another/updated tune would be required when installing this throttle body.
Yes, a new/updated tune would be required if installing this throttle body.
Throttle bodies are unable to be installed with a throttle body spacer. Horsepower gain will vary from vehicle to vehicle, and should be something to discuss with your tuner directly.
The Ford Performance Twin 62mm Throttle Body will work with your Mustang just as well as the BBK 62mm Throttle Body option.
Detailed instructions on the installation can be found here: (https://lib.americanmuscle.com/files/50253-cust.pdf) This is designed as a direct bolt on.
