i have a 07 gt and was told changing the throttle body was a waste you can actually lose hp when changing it, the mustang shop in calgary canada said they are more then happy to sell one to me but recomended me not changing it

I wouldn't recommend replacing it unless yours was broken. It's a useless mod unless you have serious power

There's a lot of different opinions. I bought a throttle body for my S197 and with all my other normal mods I saw a pretty good gain. Haven't been beat since my mods.

Gt's are a different story than V6's
