Exclamation Urgent throttle body question!

Does a bbk throttle body work with a jlt cai? will it need to be tuned if I just put on the throttle body?

yes, you will need a tune if its a GT, I am pretty sure on a V6 as well.. My idea behind this is if your CAI doesnt require a tune... guess what... its not good enough and doesnt flow enough air to warrant one, I would get one that does require it.

The throttle body in your near stock car is worthless, dont waste your money on it.

Re: Urgent throttle body question!

Yes I realize it is near stock worthless, but I plan on buying a jlt cai from bama with their tunes. Will the throttle body pose any difference then? Im looking at one that I can get for 125 dollars from a friend. (it looks next to new).

Will bama alter the tunes if I have a bbk tb?

Don't get the BBK TB, you are asking for trouble. I'm running a SC @ 10psi with the stock TB, it flows plenty. Use the money for something else (better)...................

Re: Urgent throttle body question!

I've seen cars run the stock throttle body up to 400-500 hp, like bluestang said, just save the money and spend it something better.

Re: Urgent throttle body question!

aftermarket throttlebodies hardly show gains on forced induction. spacers are garbage as well. for the price of a throttle body you can get a set of steeda pullies and delete plates.
