All BBK 1994-1995 Mustang GT 5.0L throttle bodies are designed to increase airflow and improve horsepower from between 7-12 HP depending on vehicle and application.
BBK are the world’s number one manufacturer of aftermarket performance throttle bodies for late model EFI performance cars and trucks.
All BBK Performance Power+Plus Series throttle bodies are CNC machined from high quality 356 aluminum castings to ensure perfect OEM quality and fit every time. Features like OEM die stamped throttle linkages, double sealed bearings, o ringed throttle shafts, make BBK throttle bodies number one in performance and quality.
All throttle bodies are direct replacements and include new gaskets and detailed installation instructions.

Q. Why is my Throttle body sticking closed near Idle?

A. This condition is sometimes known as "vacuum lock." There is an extreme amount of vacuum pressure on the backside of the plate, and a large pressure difference from that of the front side. When this happens, the throttle blade tends to want to stay in the closed position, due in large part to the intense vacuum pressure created by the engine. Simply using the Idle set screw (gold colored screw which the linkage rests against) to prop open the blade a tiny bit more will usually solve the problem by allowing more air to pass through the opening, thus better equalizing the pressure and alleviating the "lock." Remember to do small increments at a time, maybe ¼- to ½-turn each attempt.

Q. Why does my throttle body whistle? What can I do?

A. Turbulence in the airflow stream can create a whistle. This can be created by sharp edges in the air intake system, most notably when a larger throttle body is used on a stock intake that has not been 'Port Matched.' The air along the outer edges of the air intake system and throttle body hits the "wall" of the smaller intake manifold, creating turbulence that can cause a noticeable whistle. Other trouble areas can be the small vacuum ports and the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve port which may empty into the main bore of the throttle body. If these edges are square enough at the entry point of the bore, it can create turbulence, and the air will whistle passed it (similar to blowing over the top of an empty cola bottle just right to get it to whistle).
BBK offers a 1 year manufacturers warranty against any defects in materials or workmanship. If you feel that the ports of your throttle body are creating a whistle, you can request an RGA number (Returned Goods Authorization number) and return it to us, at which time we will inspect your piece, and further hone as you may feel it to necessary. Alternatively, if you would rather keep possession of your throttle body, and you feel you are adept enough with simple hand tools, you may want to try and hone the ports yourself with fine grit sandpaper. Some customers are adept enough with a small drill or Dremel-type tool to lightly sand the edges down. Be aware though, that any irreparable damages done to the product on the customers behalf cannot be warranted by BBK. If you feel that you are not capable of the task or do not want to risk possible damage, BBK strongly urges you to send the part in under warranty. Be aware though, that further honing the throttle body will not cure any whistling issues if the problem actually lies elsewhere in the system, and if the added airflow of a larger-bore throttle body is only making the problem perceptible.

Q. My throttle body has connections for cables on it that I don't seem to have on my throttle body. Is this the wrong one?

A. Not necessarily. Many times, our throttle body designs will encompass many different models, some of which use slightly different connections than other models. This is especially true of Automatic cars versus Manuals. If you find that you have arms and cable connections that you simply have no use for, you may safely ignore them!

Q. My throttle body seems to have vacuum ports that I don't have connections for. Did I get the wrong one?

A. Not necessarily. Here at BBK, we have discovered that some of the basic design characteristics of our throttle bodies carry over to a large number of models. In order to offer as many enthusiasts as possible a choice for performance throttle bodies, we have gone the extra mile to add certain connections to them that are required for some applications, though perhaps not yours. If this is the case, you must cap off the remaining vacuum ports, so as to avoid possible vacuum leaks that could be detrimental to your performance.

Q. Why doesn't my BBK throttle body have holes in the butterfly like my stock one?

A. The holes in a stock throttle body are there to help fight a situation known as "vacuum lock." When the blades are closed almost fully, and very little air is allowed to creep through, you wind up with a large difference in pressure between the front side, where it is about the same pressure as the atmosphere, and the backside, where the motor is creating a large vacuum against the butterfly. This tends to lock the blade into place. Since the stock throttle body is so much smaller than BBK's, it is much more of a dilemma, requiring holes in the butterfly to allow more air to flow passed, equalizing pressure. Since the BBK throttle body is a bit larger, it tends to flow more air passed its opening, thereby avoiding the need for the holes.

Q. Why does my car shift differently after I installed my BBK Throttle Body?

A. On Today's modern computerized cars, there are usually a few components that are at least partly responsible for the operation of an automatic transmission. On some models, the computer controls the shift points by comparing the Mass Air voltage versus the TPS voltage, and makes the determination for gear choice. Some also monitor the manifold pressure and utilize the readings found there to make the correct gearing choice. Some use both! If you have an automatic-equipped car and are suffering from some shift-point-blues, there are some things that you can do. One quick and easy way that sometimes proves fruitful is to modify the TPS voltage. If you bring the TPS voltage up a little bit, it will more closely fall in-line with what the computer expects to see as far as voltage readings between it and the Mass Air meter. You must do this in small increments, though: If the TPS is adjusted too high, it can create its own set of problems, like an erratic idle or slightly declined performance. Another thing you might want to try is to put some smaller vacuum tubing on your manifold/Throttle Body. After installing a Larger-bore throttle body, you can expect manifold vacuum pressure to drop a bit. This is due to the fact that you now have a larger opening to the outside atmosphere, and more flow. This option may prove to be a more tedious process than it is worth, however. Another option you might want to consider is the purchase of a "Tuner Chip" or programmer. Most after market computer chips come equipped with various ways to adjust certain settings on your car. Not only will they usually help the tune of your engine, but many will allow you to access the shift point settings, and modify the shifts to what you want them to be, and Where you want them to be. Some applications will really benefit from this add-on, even if only used for its transmission tuning capabilities. You must be aware, though, that your car's ECU (Engine Control Unit) needs to be fully calibrated for your throttle body prior to installation of any computer chips. Some chips work by modifying the stock program for better performance - and if the stock program has not yet compensated for the after market throttle body, then your added programming configuration will not function properly on your car. You could find that your idle quality and performance will not be up to par, and you may in fact run into some issues.
