Before you do a throttle body, get a CAI and tuner.. That will give up the most hp gain for the buck

Sorry didn't see that, I just read stock and then throttle body, and went straight to reply, lol

What is the goal of your car? Throttle body doesn't really do a whole lot on litely modded cars

Dont worry

I want to increase rwhp and acceleration. Im not interested in top speed.

A friend on mine told me that just by chaging the throtle body, the car will gain a lot of hp and rwhp

Well, not calling your friend a liar, but it might help "slightly" in acceleration, but you won't noticed any HP gain..

I would go with some long tube headers/full exhaust after the CAI

You will notice that..

Re: Mustang 2007 Modifications.

The Ford Racing 62mm is a simple bolt on. Tuning is recommended but I have no issues with mine and I have not had the car tuned since installation. I did disconnect the battery and went through the procedure to relearn the idle. I would not expect much of a power increase on a naturally aspirated car but they look great.

No adapter/spacer is required but I did replace the OEM studs with stainless steel cap screws.

So, the throtle body aint hepful.
And the throtle body spacer? Is cheaper. Does it make the same function?

And what about underdrive pulleys?


I just want to increase rwhp but using few stuff

---------- Post added at 10:25 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:22 AM ----------

What if I get the ford racing 62mm with tune. The change would be remarcable?

Or spacer with OEM TB

I agree with "Charles.young10", you do not need a Throttle Body, and it will not do what you expect/what your friend said is not accurate, it'll just be you waisting your money on that and on a Spacer. Even though I use a Steeda component, I do not know what is included with that Power Pak you mentioned, but I'm pretty sure it's probably good enough for you. Also Gears is a good add-on change. Underdrive Pulleys, I do not use because of the loss in inside Power, and I have a Amp and Subwoofer, so I avoided those.

Either or, the 3.73s are good, and the 3.90s if you can find them are good, I have 4.10, they are Kick@$$, but on HWY I did lose some MPGs.

Re: Mustang 2007 Modifications.

That is True, it is crazy brutal, and as for Top speed, you won't notice that. But learn how to use them carefully, so you don't run into the back of someone in front of you. And to take it easy so you are not buying new Rear tires evry other Month.

It depends, if the new elbow changes the CFM, then your tune will not match the CAI and you'll either be too lean or too rich depending on the change. The tune is based on the exact CFM allowed by the particular CAI.

But Steeda has a kit wich offers the whole CAI with tune and a carbon fiber bigger elbow.

Does the tuner may have the tune for the new CFM??

You can see it here

In short yes, it will (well, it better, lol) have the tune you need.

Good choice with steeda. Great product. JLT is the better bang for your buck, BUT steeda DOES push out "slightly" I mean "SLIGHTLY" more HP then JLT

Next up is long tube headers and full exhaust!

Sure!

I've always loved STEEDA. Since my old fusion.

And wich exhaust is better?? Axle back o cat back? Keep steeda? Or should i use borla, magnaflow, etc.

Ive heard that axle back and cat back are almost the same about hp gain but axle back is cheaper

---------- Post added at 11:13 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:12 PM ----------

And wich is the difference between ceramic and normal headers??

Use bbk??

Re: Mustang 2007 Modifications.

I can personally attest to throttle body spacers being a waste of money- I bought an AIX brand spacer on E-bay. I dyno tested, before and after- the result was nada, zilch, zero. It was 295HP before and 295HP after.

As far as exhaust is concerned, long tubes will make power- axle backs make cool sound. Pick one that sounds good to you- we could all argue ALL day about our preferences. YouTube and MustangExhaust.com have clips of different setups, and pick one you like.

Ceramic headers have been coated to protect the finish and control heat.

Re: Mustang 2007 Modifications.

A good shifter is the FIRST mod I would do. I've had the Hurst, which is good, but the ones from Barton, Pro 5.0 and Steeda are are good, too. Top it off with a custom knob from GrabberPony and you've done well.

I have the Hurst. It's good, but I've noticed that going into gear takes a little more force than stock. I guess due to less leverage of the throw?

Re: Mustang 2007 Modifications.

Hi guys!

Remember that we discussed BBK's Throtle body efficence? Well, just read that it increases 10 - 15 RWHP.

If i have Steeda's CAI and SCT tuner, my rwhp will be increased to 35 - 40, or im wrong?

Also got Tri ax Short Shifter and 4.10 gear.

Re: Mustang 2007 Modifications.

The biggest change you will see is the "seat of the pants" feel of the car. A good tune will adjust the throttle response, and the the car will feel so much more fun. Add the gears, and the the precise shifting of the Tri-Ax, and the Mustang will feel like a totally different machine. Good job, please keep us posted on your progress.
