Throttle Bodies

Back in the 1980’s Detroit’s auto manufacturers were transforming all there engine platforms to direct port fuel injection which included an entire array of new components such as fuel injectors, air intakes, mass air sensors and throttle bodies. When BBK founder Brian Murphy began selling products for this new breed of American Musclecar, it was the 1988 5.0L Mustang that he purchased as his first development vehicle.

Whether carbureted or fuel injected the basic design of all engines is pretty straight forward, more air in & out efficiently as possible equals more horsepower. After starting with a new direct bolt in shorty & equal length design header, Brian and his team quickly started addressing the intake side which resulted in ported out throttle bodies and mass air meters. After a short successful period of offering these modified parts, our engineers soon began tooling up new high flow castings that would allow for more sizes and overall much better performance levels.

As the initial building blocks of what would eventually become a full line of our world famous “Power Plus Series” performance throttle bodies, these first Mustang 5.0L throttle bodies were quickly joined with new units for such vehicles as the 305/350 equipped Camaro & Corvette models. Since those early days BBK has added new auto & truck applications each year now making our performance throttle body offerings the most popular and most comprehensive in the aftermarket.

Today our performance throttle bodies are offered for most Ford, Dodge, GM & Jeep auto & truck models with almost all units also 50-state EPA legal making them a top choice with enthusiasts. As has been the case since our first units back in the eighties, each BBK “Power Plus Series” performance throttle body is designed & produced in the USA using a new fully CNC machined 356 aluminum alloy housing assembled with an array of the highest quality components for great drivability and maximum performance. Our latest units for the new generation of platforms such as Mustang,F150, Camaro, Challenger/Charger, Ram, Silverado & V6 Jeep are built using all new drive by wire throttle control units making them a true bolt on & plug in upgrade. As with all of our BBK performance products, all throttle bodies are designed to operate with the factory or aftermarket tunes.
