Throttle body

I've been peaking at AM's bbk 70mm throttle body paired up with a CNL cold air, do I need to do anything to my cobra intake? And would a tune be required?

As long your cobra intake has a 70mm inlet you will be fine, when it comes to retuning I don't think so but you will get more performance out of your mods if you did!

I believe they are listed at 70MM, however you may need to clean it up a bit depending upon casting flaws.

It's no big deal to clean it up or to open it up if it is needed.
A dremel tool will work, a regular die grinder will work even better and in a pinch you could even use a die grinder aluminum cutting bit in a drill if you have to. Follow that up with a bit of sanding roll smoothing and you're good to go.


Just stuff some rags into the opening (make sure you get them all back out) to keep out metal particles and cut a hole in an old blanket, tarp, sheet of plastic, etc. and put it around the intake to keep the particles out of the engine bay. Cut and polish the opening to the size you need (mark a line by using the gasket) then vacuum up the metal shavings, remove the cover and rags, double check for any stray particles, install the new TB and you're good to go.

Is the upper easy to remove? Just TB and bolts right? I'd rather remove to be safe

Yes, just be careful and follow the torque sequence and specs when re-installing.

Ok, I have access to workshop manuals at my work I just would feel ALOT safer removing it from the car with metal shavings, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Agreed!
Aluminum doesn't bother me as much as steel would, but it could cause some problems for sure if it got into the wrong place.

I put a 70mm BBK on my 91GT. I think taking off the upper intake is more headache than is needed. Just giving the other side of the coin. There is a greater chance of something getting between the upper and lower intake. There are also gasket issues to contend with, torquing and re-torquing the bolts. As long as you keep your work area clean there would be no problem. I like painters tape on metal because it comes off really easy. I love my TB. You only really have to get a good tune in there if you couple the TB a new MAF which you need if you up your fuel injectors. Just adding more air intake with the TB will increase HP. If you want to get down to the brass tacks then a smooth mating of the TB to the upper intake will reduce intake turbulence. Plus, an air compressor will save a lot of heartache because you're able to blow clean any loose material.
