Hey guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with the SR Performance 70-millimeter throttle body for 2005 to 2010 V6 Mustangs. The SR Performance 70-millimeter throttle body is going to be for the Mustang owners out there that already have some supporting mods and want to make sure they're allowing as much air as possible to get to the motor. A throttle body isn't a mod that's going to add a ton of horsepower by itself. It usually works best when you've already started modding and need to make sure that the throttle body isn't acting as a bottleneck anymore.What you're really going to notice with a throttle body is more along the lines of throttle response, as long as you've got some supporting mods, and not so much horsepower and torque gains. Most people tend to think that bigger is better when it comes to modding and that isn't always the case, especially when it comes to an item like a throttle body. Bigger does cost more, but the fact is that mildly modified or stock Mustangs do not have enough air flow to fully benefit from the largest throttle body, especially since we're talking about a V6 here. If this is the case with your car then installing the biggest throttle body is only going to hurt performance and reduce throttle response. The current mods and the goals that you have planned for your car are going to determine which throttle body you'll need so you can utilize a bigger throttle body for more air flow and improved throttle response.The V6 came from the factory with a 65-millimeter throttle body, so bumping up to this 70 is opening up some air flow without a doubt. Just compare the 70 to your stock throttle body and you'll notice a difference. If you've got a car with some big mods or possibly even forced induction, then you'll know that you would be fully utilizing the greater amount of air flow that this throttle body has to offer.Just like your basic bolt on modification, this throttle body does not require a tune to run or work on the car, but I will say that a tune will definitely help to get the most results out of the throttle body. The throttle body is going to be a lot like a cold air intake in this sense. It helps the car for sure, but you're not really going to notice a whole ton of horsepower as you're driving along. It's not a mod that you're going to notice a ton of difference with.Looking at this a little bit more, it is a CNC machined 356-grade aluminum body. This is to ensure an OEM quality and a perfect fit. This throttle body also has some other great qualities as well. It has beefed up components like OEM die stamped throttle linkages, double sealed bearings, and O-ring throttle shafts which are features that make it highly compatible with a drive by wire setup.As far as price, you can expect to spend in the range of $250 to $300 for this 70-millimeter throttle body. This is less expensive than the BBK option on the site by about $60. Throttle bodies do tend to be pretty expensive but keep in mind that this is complete and ready to go. You won't need to purchase any adapters or anything else to make this work for you.I'm going to keep with what I said and still say that this is a basic bolt on. It's going to be a one out of three wrenches on the scale and should take about an hour to complete. You will need a few socket sizes, a ratchet, a 5 millimeter Allen wrench, and of course a volt meter. SR Performance suggests to reuse the stock throttle body gasket, but you can always pick up a new gasket easily if you don't want to reuse yours.There are a few things that you'll have to get out of the way before you start the install like disconnecting the negative battery cable and unplugging the throttle body electric motor, the TPS, and the mass air meter. You're going to want to loosen the hose clamps on the throttle body and the airbox so you can remove the inlet tube and get to the throttle body. There are only four bolts for the throttle body, so back those out and then you can remove the throttle body. You will need to transfer over some things from the old throttle body over to the new one, but the instructions will walk you through all of that. Once you have the new throttle body ready to go, it's just a matter of reinstalling with the four bolts and reassembling the items that you moved out of the way.Wrapping things up here, the SR Performance 70-millimeter throttle body is made from a high-quality aluminum casting, it will allow for more air flow, and it's a direct bolt-on install that doesn't require any tuning. It has upgraded components. It's easy to install and it's ready to bolt on from the box. You don't need to purchase anything extra to make it work.
