    More Power, Better Response. Produce more power and improve throttle response by replacing the restrictive stock throttle body with the same throttle body found on the Shelby GT500 along with a 1/2" adapter plate.

    Shelby GT500 Throttle Body. This upgrade kit includes the same exact Twin Blade Throttle Body that came as standard equipment on the 2007 to 2010 Shelby GT500 upgrading you from 55mm to 60mm for better airflow and more power.

    1/2" Adapter Plate. The included 1/2" billet adapter plate is five-axis CNC-machined to exactly match the center of the GT500's throttle body bores with the exact center of the factory 4.6 3V intake manifold bores for a smooth tapered transition. The adapter plate includes required template to modify the GT500 throttle body and an OEM-style seal for a seamless installation.

    Light Drilling Required. The Shelby GT500 Twin Blade Throttle Body and 1/2" Adapter are designed to install in under two hours with just basic hand tools. The GT500 throttle body will need to be drilled out using the provided template.

    Required Upgrade. To realize the full power potential that this Ford Racing Throttle Body has to offer, AmericanMuscle recommends a custom Bama tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for proper operation.

    Application. This Shelby GT500 60mm Twin Blade Throttle Body and 1/2" Adapter Kit is designed to fit the 2005 to 2010 4.6L V8 Mustangs, including the GT and Bullitt models. Technical Note: The included Shelby GT500 Twin Blade throttle body will require light modification/drilling to install correctly with the included adapter plate.

    Will this work with the mods I already have listed below? I have a 2008GT that has the ford racing CAI, and also the Ford Racing shaker hood system. I am curious as to the fit of this Ford Racing GT500 Throttle Body Upgrade Kit (05-10 GT) with the above mentioned items. I only ask as for example when I purchased the ford racing shaker hood system, it was not designed to fit really well with the Ford Racing CAI... it took several mods and extra fees as a result of the fitment conflicts.

    • A friend has the same setup as you have and he had to use a Dremel tool and make some cuts at the front of the Shaker system to accommodate the throttle body because the adapter plate adds about 3/8-7/16's towards the front of the engine. Hope this answers your question.

    Will this mount onto the Ford Racing intake manifold without the adapter plate or does it still need to be drilled to fit the plate before it will mount to the manifold? Thanks

    • This item will still need to use the adapter plate for proper mounting to the performance ford manifold, which would require slight drilling with the plate for proper fitment.

    Why would one choose the 60mm over one of the 62mm offerings? This part was recommended to me to compliment the FRPP Hot Rod Cams. I am currently running the stock intake but a future upgrade is always in the works.

    • While a 62 mm Throttle Body is slightly larger than a 62mm, the difference may not affect the performance of the car. Sometimes parts, like camshafts, will call for certain applications that will work best with it. You can go up to a 62mm Throttle Body but it may not change anything from a 60mm. Depending on the other modifications you have done to the car, a 60mm Throttle Body might be the best route to go.

    If i get this item without the adaper plate. Can i use the airaid spacer instead which i already have? Also will i need a different coupler for the roush cai on my 05 gt?

    • The Ford Performance GT500 Throttle Body Upgrade Kit will not work with a throttle body spacer designed for the GT, and will require the adapter. This will work with your existing CAI coupler.

      Install is not simple

      I am pleased with the performance! I was not happy with the fact that I had to drill out the adapter/spacer plate and throttle body without a template.(The adapter/spacer that comes with the throttle body should have been predrilled. It was to fit the throttlebody...not the intake.) Also since it is a larger throttlebody...i needed a larger boot that attached the cold air intake! No mention was made from American Muscle! They also don't offer a boot that fits this throttlebody! It takes an afternoon to install IF you have all the parts and drilled out. Otherwise it will take about a week to get a proper size boot! But I am beyond pleased with the performance of this GT500 throttlebody! Much better response, better low end torque! I love it but my tires dont!

      Still waiting

      I haven't installed the throttle body yet. The install does not mention the need for an adaptor to make it fit your existing cai. One should be made available through a.m. to make this an easier install.

      Good Throttle Reaponse

      Fairly easy to install, just follow the template they give and you will have no trouble. just don't forget you will need a 5" couple to reattach your intake. I forgot to order one so my car was down for a couple days while I waited.

      fantompony again

      UNFORTUNATELY THIS HAS TO BE A NAGATIVE REVIEW. I PUT THIS TB ON MY 06, AND THE CAR NEVER IDLED PROPERLY. WHEN I WOULD HIT THE ACCELERATOR IT WOULD HANG AT 2500 RPM. I NEVER GOT TO ACTUALLY DRIVE MY CAR EXCEPT UP THE STREET AND BACK. THIS WAS A WASTE OF MONEY FOR ME. I PICKED UP THE GMS 62MM TB AND THE CAR RUNS LIKE A CHAMP

      JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE

      The GT 500 throttle body easily replaces the stock one. With some slight modification to the unit (basically enlarging the bolt holes) it bolts right on. The folks at Bama wrote me up a new tune and we were good to go. The one thing I would mention is if you already have aftermarket breather check the diameter of the rubber boot that connects them you may also need a new boot to connect them together

      Throttle responce

      Didnt really feel a difference in performance maybe a few ponys maybe 5 if that. But did it for the throttle responce. Great for at the track cutting down those reaction times.

      Gives my Bullitt an extra boost

      I was skeptical of the gains from going from 55 - 60mm, but what a difference does it make on my 09 Bullitt (with a custom tune of course) The car is definitely snappier in the lower rpms and you feel the gains with WOT. The only downside is you have to drill holes into your throttle body to make it fit properly. Had a shop do the install for $150. Thanks American Muscle!

      Great part, tricky install

      part is great. Be sure to get an oversize boot for intake throat. It is larger than stock size and American muscle doesn't have them nor will they tell you that it is needed. You will need one that is bigger at throttle body and small enough for intake tube to work.

      Proceed with Caution 2005 GT Owners

      I purchased this throttle body to upgrade my 2005 Mustang GT. The instructions were clear and template provided; however, I overlooked considering a new CAI that would fit this aftermarket product. Upon searching for one, I could neither find a CAI for this size throttle body for my 05 GT platform; nor could I find an adapter for the GT500 throttle body and 05 Rousch CAI (which has an angle and is different in length compared with the subsequent models for which this FTB was designed. I ended up taking it off and will try to sell it on craigslist. I put the old one back on but ordered a procharger which is on its way so ultimately it is irrelevant. While it was on it sounded great, but AM should offer a CAI that is compatible with this item for 05 GT upon checkout as it (CAI) is a necessary part.

      Silicone coupling fitment

      Note that the 4-1/2" silicon coupler that currently ships with JLT Series-3 CAI will _not_ fit to the GT500 TB, which requires a 5" coupler (6.2" x 3.5") even with stretching. Some reviews have said that JLT will fit up but this is not the case.

      looks and Performance

      The throttle body is not bad American Muscle delivered it a day sooner than I thought only thing that I can say about the throttle body as a negative thing is are you also going to have to upgrade your rubber coupling that connects to the cold air intake to the throttle body it will not fit it is an inch and a half off so on your rubber coupling you will need to go by A 5 inch on one side and 5 and a half inches on the other side you will have to look online to order it could not find it nowhere else because it is too big that and the throttle body does not line up with the hose on a Ford Racing intake manifold you have to grind out hold out a little wider for it to match up but just the only one hold but it did create a better for throttle response then with the Ford Racing intake manifold it is breathing a whole lot better

      Not for Whipple Supercharged Applications

      First, this would have received all 5s if it worked on my car. However, not listed on this site, but found elsewhere this item DOES NOT fit those cars with the Whipple 2.3L (140ax) Supercharger. The 180* inlet doesnt have enough tolerance between the S/C housing and the inlet to allow it to fit. The TB physically cannot fit on the inlet. AM did a great job in RMA and I've since purchased the FRPP 62mm one... Just a word to the wise for those with the Whipple S/C

      Shelby GT500 Ford Racing Throttle Body with Adpater Plate

      My car is a 2006 Mustang GT. I installed this Shelby GT500 Throttle Body with Adapter Plate ( already correctly machined for correct fit ) in about 25 minutes and it is a true bolt on, plug in, and go part ! Excellent fit and finish and looks great in place of the stock throttle body. I also installed the Airiad Race CAI along with the SCT Bama Tuner and installed the performance tune ( it's idiot proof ) by simply following the screen prompts. This is the best combo of parts along with the tune to get the most bang for you hard earned dollars outside of getting into new heads, cams, or a turbocharger. I would recommend these parts and tuner to everyone with a 4.6L 3V engine. More sensitive throttle response and no lag between shifts in my automatic and it wants to spin the tires even with the TCB on and not even at WOT ! Best money I have spent for performance yet and I am still acquiring other parts for future install and tuner upgrade as well.
