hmm im not sure its been tried by anyone I know, but I highly doubt it will work since the GT throttle body is round and I believe the GT500 is oval.

Yes, BBR has the spacer for 80.00, and a couple people gave me there GT500 TB's free.

It is on and runs great, can't wait till drag strip opens

Re: Can u install GT500 throttle body on a 4.6

Depends on what you call a (difference). The responce is better, engine sounds different, pulls harder at mid range. I removed the CM plates at the same time though. I think it is a great upgrade for the price, my total cost was $100.00, vs $600.00 for FRPP's TB for 2mm more. I don't know if you can see it on a Dyno!

How did you get the throttle body for 100.00?
