    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.

    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.

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

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

      Better throttle

      Already had the SR cai so wanted a throttle body to add some more air. Purchased this 70 mm black combo. Received timely and packaged well with all required parts. Easy install. I can already tell there is more throttle response. Not sure about more horsepower. Looks good. Satisfied with outcome.

      Looks nice.

      I am unsure as to the performance impact but it looks nice. Attaching the throttle cable was not as straight forward as it seems. Took me as long to hook the cable up correctly as it did for installing everything else combined. But I'm a rookie.

      Looks good

      Bolted on pretty easy, just had a little trouble with one of the plastic fittings that was provided. There wasn't much room between the fitting and one of the sensors you have to transfer over. I was able to thread it in a little bit. Not the best fitting, but I made it work. Getting the car tuned next week after I installed this and the headers so will see the true potential of it soon.

      Punch for the buck

      Many people upgrade their intake system but not the throttle unit, which causes a bottleneck. This 70mm throttle unit remedies that, and really gave a more assertive throttle to my 02 GT.

      Great product

      I was skeptical about the product at first but figured it was the last bolt on part I needed and man am I happy I grabbed it. The plenum throttle body combo is a great deal and you can definitely feel a harder pull in the mid range. I also love the sound, you can hear the motor breathing with a noticeable whistle when you are on the throttle. Definitely a great supporting mod when you have a CAI and a full exhaust. Thank you American Muscle for keeping my old GT from seeing too many taillights.

      poor fitment

      The items looks are ok. the man face of it is perfect but on the edges its got weird holes in the metal. My biggest issue was fitment. I work on cars professionally and deal with poor fitment all the time. But when you pay for something like this you expect it to just bolt on. I had to trim my gaskets that came with it. The plastic hose connector wont screw in far enough for your sensor to clear so you have to trim it. Then the threads are made very cheap so putting a bolt in it cross threads if your not super careful. Works great once on but I would go with another type.

      Great value

      I had already installed long tube headers and cold air intake and didn't even plan to buy this. Due to the sale price coupled with a 20 off I decided to give it a try. Wow what a difference, it pulls all the way to 6000 rpm now. it did seem to add a little more power in the mid-range as well.Easy to install, included all the gaskets and hardware needed for my 97 gt.
