throttle body

Are there noticable gains by throwing a BBK 65mm throttle body on the 3.8?
I've heard they give 7-10 hp. Are they as easy as they say to install yourself. Do i need to upgrade anything else if i put that in?

Re: throttle body

Most people will agree with me that a TB is not needed unless you're making some big power gains. I still use my stock TB and it hasn't affected or hindered any performance even with my SSM Powerpak.

Re: throttle body

BBK throttlebody FTL. I hated mine on my old Roush. I don't know much about V-6 Mustangs but if you could just get your stock one ported that might be better.
