They were supposed to give me one to test for them but they've since ignored my emails after a couple weeks of "We'll be getting them in and you can come in and test one.".

I also alerted them that it's compatible with the 2.7.

I highly doubt you will get any gain out of a throttle body upgrade as far as horsepower. It will feel like it has better throttle response because it will flow more at a given throttle position similar to the pedalmax, but once you get anywhere near the max airflow of the stock TB there are so many other much worse restrictions that I highly doubt the TB will make a lick of difference. I'd start upgrading things on the cold side of the intake first, then the exhaust, then the charged air pipes, then the turbos, then when you start getting closer to 500+hp, it might be worth upgrading the TB. If it were significantly cheaper, it might be worth is just for the placebo effect of the throttle response, but you should already be able to tweak that with a tune. That's my $.02 anyway.

The gains may be higher on the sport. The hp numbers posted by BBK are for the mustang. It may be very similar but I feel it would help her breath better. Agreeing that we really need a tune + intake + exhaust to see some real numbers. I'm interested in it because I'm doing a tune shortly and would like to have it included to see if it makes a bigger impact on the throttle response.

Throttle response can easily be changed with a tune. Was hoping for a lower price so I could perform some Vbox testing and see if any time was taken off 0-60 or 40-80 etc.

I wouldn't waste my time or money on a throttle body unless you have a tuner working with you! TB are very touchy with the ECU and can cause faults, we have done many dyno's with upgraded TB's with no real gain other than some response, it's your money, but I personally would not waste my time on it.

Bump, anyone with this TB? Are any sensors replaced? Dyno results?

@DetroitFS, TwinForce_Fusion installed a BBK 65mm TB back in June. In his videos that I've seen, he hasn't complained any about his BBK TB.

Today TwinForce_Fusion posted a video with his Sport running 0-60 in 3.80 seconds:

In a video that TwinForce_Fusion posted yesterday, he showed that he's using a Beltronics VectorPro GX2 to measure his times.

Can't find any info on the gx2. Probably has a 1hz gps module. Just as unreliable as our phones. Can anyone cited that it has a 10 or 20hz gps module? Those are the only personal devices I would trust. 3.8 doesnt sound impossible though.
