SR Performance's 75 mm throttle body I've got here today is a good option for any of my '94, '95 5.0 liter owners out there that are looking to squeeze every last bit of power out of their naturally aspirated or forced induction motor. Now when it comes time for the installation, expect an easy one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and about an hour job only needing basic hand tools. We're gonna show you how coming up soon. So when it comes to moving air into and out of your 5.0, there are a few general rules here guys. Cold airs, throttle bodies and air intake manifolds going in, you got long tubes and a cat-back to move that all out. Now, some parts have a tendency to move air more effectively, like long tubes compared to a set of mufflers. Just for example, now, if you are the 5.0 liter owner who's already done every air and exhaust upgrade possible, you're probably looking at where else you can squeeze out more power. Now that's where this guy comes in. Now while throttle bodies aren't modifications that make gobs of power on their own, when paired with the aforementioned mods, it really adds up in the long run, and we're all hunting for power gains, right? So the Mustang's factory throttle body comes in at 56 mm and the SR Performance bumps it up to 75 mm. Now, while it sounds small it is a big step up in the right direction, but bigger doesn't necessarily always mean it's gonna be better on its own here. If your motor is completely stocked this is not gonna do much for you at all. But if you're investing in exhaust pieces, an air intake, and a manifold, and other power adders, that OEM throttle body will quickly become a bottleneck. Now this throttle body fixes that, freeing up that extra air your motor needs to take advantage of the other mods. Now looking into the construction here a little bit for you, this throttle body is made from a permanent mold casting of 356 grade aluminum to produce a higher quality, stronger housing than a conventional sand mold casting, which reduces porosity. Now, that basically means that this throttle body gets a harder and smoother finish. And speaking of finishes, this does have a really nice, polished look that's gonna fit pretty well under your hood. Now it is worth pointing out a couple things here. One, it's not a tune required throttle body, meaning that you can simply install it and hit the ground running, and not have to pick up a 4-bank eliminator chip, but we're always gonna recommend it here. Now, two, this is more of a recommendation from me and everybody else here at AM, and that's gonna be just like I had said earlier. If you're gonna be doing the throttle body here, it's best to pair this at least with a cold air intake to really yield those higher gains. Now that being said, SR Performance's 75 mm throttle body option by itself only costs $150, which will make this the most inexpensive throttle body for the '94, '95 5.0 liter at the time of shooting this video. Now when it comes time for the installation, like I said a little bit earlier, you're looking at an easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and about an hour job only needing basic hand tools like a socket set. So you'll want to start by removing the negative battery terminal followed by the hose from the throttle body to the air intake, then detach the three cables from the throttle linkage followed by unplugging the throttle position sensor as well as your idle air control. You can then remove four nuts holding the throttle body onto the intake manifold with a 13 mm wrench or socket. You'll then need to remove the factory IAC and throttle position sensor, and once they're off it's gonna be a great idea just to clean the IAC with a little bit of carb cleaner while you're at it. You'll then install the throttle position sensor and IAC onto the new throttle body. So with the supplied gasket, install the new throttle body onto the intake manifold and then secure with the factory nuts and then torque them down to spec. You can then reattach the linkages to the throttle body and plugs onto the TPS and IAC. Once you've done that you're gonna install the hose back onto the new throttle body then reconnect your negative battery terminal. Now after that you're gonna wanna fire your car up and then adjust the idle by turning the idle screw. So, if it doesn't change the idle, simply just adjust the throttle position sensor until you're happy where it's at. So that'll wrap up my quick review and breakdown of SR Performance's 75 mm throttle body, fitting the '94 and '95 GT Mustang that can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

This throttle body is perfect for anyone that has a sn95 mustang with a 5.0 or 3.8 with a m90 supercharger. What I love most about the throttle body is that it allows you to adjust the throttle sensor. It was easy to install this part with some hand tools. My mustang has a quicker acceleration and throttle response with this throttle body install.Helpful (1)

Throttlebody sticking open
Nice product but did experience the throttlebody sticking when installed on car had to use a extra return spring for butterfly to close all the wayHelpful (0)

Great product for price!
Great for what you pay. Had to grind a little off TPS blade as it hung inside TPS sensor when throttle was rotated. Also able to dial in voltage at sensor more precisely due to adjustment screws. Finish matches new Vortech perfectly as well.Helpful (3)

Quality throttle body
I had a BBK throttle body on my 95 mustang and it broke. I went online to look at buying a replacement throttle body and after checking out this unit I went ahead and bought it. The unit is sold and well made. Comes with instructions for beginners and even gaskets. Great product and would highly recommend.Helpful (3)

Seems to be a solid piece. Lines of the product are clean and the throttle plates move smooth with no excess wiggles or movement. I say this is a very solid buy and I have had it on the car now for about 2 months with no issue.Helpful (4)

75 mm Throttle Body
Very pleased with this throttle body. Looks impressive and runs great...Helpful (3)
Will this be too much for my 1995 mustang gt? all I have done right now performance wise is a Cold air intake, BBK shorty headers,bbk x pipe un catted, with flow master exhuast. Should I go 70mm?
The SR Performance 75mm Throttle Body would be a little too much for your car. We would recommend checking out the 70mm throttle body for your car!
Practical for my build? I have a 5.0 motor, aftermarfket CAI, e303 cam 3.73 gears, flowmaster 40 series exhaust.
I my opinion is that you should stick with 70mm until you get real close to 400 hp at the crank. The trickflow top-end kits that are sold with heads, cam, and intake manifold run 350 hp at engine with 70mm. I am currently rebuilding 302 HO motor with twisted wedge, edel performer intake, F303 cam, full exhaust, and 70mm TB. The extra flow from 75 wont kill your setup, but is not needed at this point.
I have long tube headers, a cold air intake and upgraded exhaust. Would this be too much MM or air for the engine? Do the headers make a difference vs just having a cold air intake because headers aren’t a small modification
Yes, we would suggest to install this only once a supercharger is involved. It otherwise would be too large for a naturally aspirated application. Both the headers and cold air intake are two of the most important performance modification for a Mustang.
I have a 94 cobra 5.0, it is bored to a 306 with forged internals, Aluminum Edelbrock Performer RPM heads,B303cam full roller top end, stock cobra intake with 24lb injectors, underdrive pullies, kooks long tube headers with x-pipe, full race exhaust with flow master duel chamber mufflers, bbk cold air intake, car made 415hp with 320 to rear tires, should I switch to the 75mm or stay with the 70mm?
For a 306 we typically recommend a 70mm throttle body for street and street/strip use.
I'm currently working up a build for my 1995 GT 5.0 and am considering this TB. Right now not a lot has been done beyond intake and exhaust but I have some much larger mods planned with respect to headders and a 347 stroker however this is going to take me some time to afford and assemble. My question is, if I get the 75mm TB and stick it on now, will it be detrimental to my current setup, or just simply overkill that I will end up using later anyway. Basically, will this TB hurt my current performance, or just be underutilized? Thanks, Scott
The SR Performance 75mm Throttle Body would be meant for heavily modified cars. We would not recommend getting this size throttle body just yet until you do some more of the mods you want.
This throttle body does not have a CARB number and will not be legal in states that are adopting the California regulations. This will also be able to mate with the inlet pipe that came with the C&L 76mm MAF.
With the mild mods you have done, this would be a bit overkill as your engine doesn't have enough airflow to benefit from this size. The 70mm Throttle Body would be better suited for your application. I've attached the link below so you can take a look!
