    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    So SR 70-millimeter polished intake that we've got here today is gonna be a good option for any in-line [SP] two-valve GT owners out there that are after high flow intake plenum and throttle body all in one. It's gonna give you a small bump in horsepower, it's gonna look great under the hood, but most importantly, it's not gonna burn a hole in your pocket. A great thing about this is that it's going to install pretty easily with basic hand tools. For that, you're gonna be looking at an easy one out of three wrenches in our difficulty meter here, about 30 minutes to an hour job, and I'll have a little bit more coming up for you on that later. So throttle intakes are a great way to force more air into your Mustang's motor, but this always doesn't translate to more power. Now, you've probably seen some other throttle body or intake options out there, and the 70-millimeter is gonna be for a stock or a mild bolt-on car. So the bigger options like 73 or 75 are gonna be for heavily modified cars, something that's gonna be running forced induction. Now, larger intakes can actually bog down your motor, and it's gonna be like the equivalent of you or me trying to take a drink or a sip out of a fire hose. So if you're the daily driver that has a couple of bolt-ons, this is gonna be the right mod for you. This thing doesn't require tune either, which is always nice, but a general rule of thumb here says that you should probably expect to be seeing high single digit to low double digit gains, but paired with a tune, those numbers are gonna be fluctuating. So at this point you're probably asking yourself, "Well, what's the difference between this throttle intake and a standalone throttle body?" This is a two for one deal, for lack of a better term, because you're getting a built in throttle body and a larger plenum at the same time. Now the bonus with this is you're pushing the right amount of air into your motor that you might with a throttle body of the same size or stock plenum. And not only that, this thing just looks that much cooler. The plenum's rounded off, which will look great with a polished cold air intake and you can actually see the exposed throttle control. I'm just gonna handle the butterfly valve inside, which, you know, is pretty old school and it looks cool. Now the stock intake plenums on the two valves tend to get pitted or corroded, whereas with this, you're gonna be getting a polished finish that won't fade or dull as long as you clean it up every now and then, and it's gonna help pick up some style points at local shows or get-togethers. Now in terms of the pricing here, guys, expect to be spending about 250 bucks to get this onto your car, which is a bargain, in my opinion, compared to some of the other styles out there, like Active Fab, for example, which can run upwards of about 500 bucks. Now we do have a BBK unit on site, which is gonna run closer to 300 bucks. Your main difference there is that it's just gonna have a dark charcoal finish, but it still will be made up of the same materials. Now compared to just picking up a throttle body, this is something, in my opinion, that's gonna be that much more of a viable option because you are gonna be getting that increased diameter of the throttle body, along with the addition of the plenum, which ultimately is gonna yield higher numbers. Now install-wise great things about throttle bodies or combos like this is that they install with little to no effort at all. You're looking at a basic 30 minute to an hour job with a basic socket set and an easy one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter.So you're gonna begin by unplugging your negative battery terminal, followed by the front vacuum light and a TPS and idle air control connection. After that, remove the two bolts holding the EGR onto the back of the plenum, with the additional bolts securing the throttle cable bracket to the plenum. Once that's done, guys, undo your throttle body hose clamp, along with the five bolts that are holding the plenum to the manifold. But once that's done, guys, it's more or less just gonna be buttoning everything back up, checking your connections, making sure everything's ready to rock, and that's it.So that's gonna wrap up my quick review and breakdown of SR 70 millimeter throttle intake in the polished finish, fitting the 1996 through 2004 Mustang GT, that can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Hi I plan on putting a stage 1 cam in my 00 Mustang GT and I was wondering if this throttle body would be a good match with it or should I get a bigger one?

    PAstang

    • This throttle intake is a good addition to your 2000 Mustang GT that will have the stage 1 cams on it as those cams are good upgrades for vehicles that are not heavily modified.

    Is this California Air Resources Board approved? It would be helpful if this information was included with any engine or exhaust product.

    Performance/advantage difference if any between the 70mm Throttle Intake and the combo of SR's Upper Intake Plenum and 70mm Throttle Body? I understand one would be a solid piece and the other would be separate but paired together. Advantages/disadvantages of both?

    JosephB

    • Being a one piece design, the SR Performance 70mm Throttle Intake will flow slightly more, and will flow smoother than a traditional 2 piece design. Realized performance benefits between these two designs will be minimal.

      Nice unit for price, but...

      I had been looking at throttle bodies and plenums and found this SR combo unit. Looks very sharp under the hood and I've noticed some performance gains, especially off idle. Directions very vague but this unit is similar to the BBK unit and online install instructions for the BBK will work on the SR unit. Had to shave the PCV fitting as you are not going to get this to screw down flush. Also had to enlarge the hole on the throttle linkage to fit the cable barrel on the end. Do this before install. Not much though, a 1/4 drill bit and just move it around in the hole a bit. The barrel will slip right in. Getting a new tune from BAMA so we'll see what happens,.

      Review from SR Performance 70mm Throttle Intake - Black (96-04 GT)

      For the price - a GREAT replacement

      I wasn't looking for great power gains with this SR Performace 70mm upper intake - my old stock throttle body and plenum were just so gummed up with carbon and oil deposits I just thought it best to replace them. This piece is a GREAT compromise between the more expensive, name-brand TB's and plenums and your tired, dirty stock ones. I had a very small issue with a port that is located on the back of the SR plenum (facing the firewall) that seemed to accept a larger hose than my stock one I took off. The port (I can't remember what it went to) appeared to take a 3/8" diameter hose and my old plenum's port was a 1/4". Easy fix was to get an adapter that went from 1/4 to 3/8 and some extra hose and done. Install time for me was quite long because I took my time and was in the midst of other projects with this car but any semi-experienced home-mechanic can change this thing out within 1-2 hours. Like I said, not a big change in performance, HOWEVER, the car does seem to idle better and there is slightly better throttle response. My car has over 300K miles so it's not a good benchmark. As a suggestion to AM, would you consider adding the oval-shaped rubber gasket that sits in-between the upper and lower intake to the kit? I wanted to replace mine when doing the swap but couldn't find the gasket alone - it is only included with some larger gasket kits on some other sites. I ended up re-using my gasket with no problems. Very satisfied with this product!!

      My experience with SR thus far is that it represents great value, basically you get what you pay for. You may get a little better finish on a higher-priced alternative, but the SR gets the job done! Fit was excellent. Finish was good. Performance gain was minimally noticeable, but I'm still waiting on my re-tune. Definitely boosted the mid-range, throaty sound, which is a plus!

      Everything but the finish

      Fits like a glove. All original parts that had to be transplanted fit perfectly. Much more air flow. Only fault with this thing is the finish. Chrome is pitted and a deep chip out of one spot , for my daily driver , and wanted to get back on the road so I just sucked it up and put it on. For performance at a good price, this is great. If you want it to look great as well, may not be for you.

      Installed in about 45 minutes on my 02 Gt. It adds noticeable pull on lower rpms and the exhaust note has changed a bit too. In combination with my intake and exhaust and the Bama tune, the car runs better than ever. Throttle response is immediate and I'm getting more smiles per gallon!

      Works and looks very good. My only knock was that it did not come with the gasket to mount it to the intake.The local parts store only sells stock gaskets that wont work on this. You would think after spending $250 that it would come with the gasket.
