Technical Note. 90mm 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.

Ford 90mm throttle body
Great throttle body! I installed this on a 2014 GT automatic. Fit and finish is incredible. I can’t really comment on The power difference from just the throttle body since I installed it with a programmer and intake as well. But with the air raid racer intake, Bama tuner, and ford racing throttle body, WOW!!!! The difference is incredibleHelpful (6)

If you have the little extra money and want only Ford Performance “quality” parts then the feel, finish, whistle, and slight performance edge this beautiful piece will give you will not only make you crack a grin every time you pop the hood but it will constantly remind you that you made the right decision. Enjoy!Helpful (13)

90mm Ford Performance throttle body
The throttle body looks great and does make a difference in the performance of my Boss. It is a little tricky to get that TB tuned just right to make a difference in the performance. Originally had BAMA send me three different tunes which did not work at all. They were great out of the whole, but once I hit 5000 rpm's the motor fell flat on its face. I ended up taking it in to get a professional tune done and it made the world of difference.Helpful (14)

This thing is sweeeet. Definitely get pumped to pull this out the box! Not only does it look like a gem under the hood but paired with the Boss 302 I.M. I got some major power gains! However they do not make a coupler to fit this so I did have to order and custom cut my own to fit my Airaid CAI which I wasn't prepared for. Not sure how it will be for others tho. All in all, extremely happy with this product.Helpful (8)

Great final bolt on upgrade
First off, I'm an amateur under the hood. I've put on a CAI and that's about it. I got through most of the install on this without a hitch until I got to the wiring harness. The install instructions made it seem a little easier then it was and I ended up destroying one of the wires trying to get it out of the factory harness. So I had it towed to my mechanic and they replaced the wire and installed the TB for me. After bouncing back a data log with Bama tuning they fixed a very bad cold start issue I had going after the install. After the 2nd tune upload my car is running like a CHAMP! I don't notice very much performance change because I have full exhaust, CAI and a tune. The biggest difference I noticed was the fact it fixed many of the issues my car was having. I was having an issue when I first got the car with my RPMs dropping too low and the engine stalling randomly while coasting in nuetral. The only way I could fix it was to up my idle rpm to where it didn't go below 900. After installing this throttle body I no longer have to boost my idle RPM through the tuner to keep it from stalling. It goes all the way down to 650 (where it's supposed to) and doesn't drop below it at all. I also am able to let my car coast in gear without giving throttle and it maintains speed. Before it would make a chugging noise and start to lose speed faster than it should've. I am thrilled with the purchase and finally have my car driving the way it should've all along. I am giving 4 stars because it's stupid that you have to rewire the harness for it to work. Other than that it's a solid purchase that looks and drives the part. Also it's nice because most people have the BBK 90mm so you stand out more with this one. Sorry for the long review.Helpful (9)

Throttle body looks like a gem under the hood
The 90mm throttle body was a great upgrade. Not only does it look great, I could feel and hear the difference. I'll know more once the weather improves and I drive a bit more and analyze the performance changes. Two tips: It was difficult to re-wire the one stock connector as far as removing in the pins to insert into the new connector. I used the safety pin, but placed it on the left side when looking down and pried inward of the pin opening as I pulled on the wire. Also, when using the stock air tube follow the submitted instructions for sawing about 1.5", just after the rubber hose clamp portion. It was difficult to find a silicone coupler and I recommend AM offer a part for this upgrade. I found Precision Turbo out of Hebron IN offered a 3.5" to 4" multi-layer coupler that worked perfect and looks great. Probably would have taken under an hour if I hadn't dropped and lost a screw and had better advice for the rewire.Helpful (9)

Beautiful Quality Piece, Nice Gains
First, I'd like to say that this is a beautiful throttle body. If you showcase your Coyote, this is the throttle body you want sparkling at the judges. As far as performance, I did see noticeable gains. I saw huge gains once I installed headers and an x-pipe. Right away, you'll hear the throttle body taking in way more air than stock. I used this in conjunction with the BOSS 302 Intake and there is a little bit of modification needed to the wiring. No worries, the instructions from AM customers were spot on. Great product!Helpful (7)

overall I feel that the ford racing 90mm throttle body was the one piece I was missing to the boss 302 intake man. when you open the hood of your car it jumps out making it the center piece of your engine. the gains are big with this too your pony will buck off the line the only thing bad I would say about this was the install pain in the butt but once you get it all done you will love it the price was high compared to the BBK 90mm but hey you are driving an American muscle car built by ford way would you want to put anything else under your hood but a ford racing product plus and I'm not 100 sure but it doesn't void out your factory war. that's what I was told thoHelpful (7)
Will this be a direct fit for a 302 boss intake manifold? Will I need anything certain?
The Ford Performance 90mm Throttle Body will fit the BOSS 302 Intake Manifold with the required Ford Racing Adapter part# M-9474-M50B which can be found here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/frpp-boss-tbody-adapter-1112gt.html
DYNO Tune? will a BAMA tune work or does it have to be dyno tuned? Also i have a AirRaid CAI and a BOSS 302 intake will that work with this?
YES, your throttle body will do great with just a BAMA tune....your cold air and intake will love your new throttle body......remember to do something to get all that air "out" the back
Will this FP 90mm TB fit the Sniper intake manifold with 90mm opening and fuel rail kit? If so, will it require any additional adapter kits?
The Ford Performance 90mm Throttle Body will fit the Sniper Intake Manifold without the use of an adapter.
Is it a bad thing to install this on a lightly modified GT? if so what TB should i go with?
The 90mm throttle body can be used on lightly modified GT's, however, it is designed for forced induction vehicles as well as high RPM naturally aspirated built engines. The throttle body that would be recommended for a lightly modified 11-14 GT mustang would be the 85mm throttle body item 56145. https://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-85mm-throttlebody-112gt.html
I NEED A REPLACEMENT WIRING HARNESS FOR THROTTLE BODY, DO YOU KNOW WHERE I CAN BUY ONE
We do not offer replacement wiring harnesses for this throttle body.
Honestly you're right on the edge here, it could go either way. I would lean towards the 85 still however ultimately I would speak with your tuner as, depending on how they tune for this application, they may say they can get more out of the 90.
The screw at the bottom would be an adjustment screw for the throttle blade.
This is designed for the 11-14 Mustang GT models. Unfortunately it will not work with the 2018 models.
This Ford Performance 90mm Throttle Body will only work on a 11-14 GT.
We would recommend the 85mm throttle body rather than this one here for the modifications that you have on your Mustang. The 90mm throttle body wouldn't be too beneficial for your build and you wouldn't see the gains that supercharged or heavily modified builds would see.
At this point in time, we have only been able to confirm fitment for 11-14 GT's as well as 12-13 Boss 302's.
This will not cause a loss in power, however you may notice a slight loss in throttle response if the car is otherwise mostly stock.
The Ford Performance 90mm Throttle Body will work well with your setup.
Ford Performance does not offer a warranty and are sold as-is, with a few product exceptions. This Ford Performance 90mm Throttle Body is not one of those products that they have listed as an exception.
Both of these throttle bodies will be relatively close to the horsepower gains you will find when installing this! As far as the tuning goes you will want to get a tune when installing this throttle body.
