What Throttle Body/Plenum Combo Should I Get?

Now that I finally have my 04 GT, I'm looking to modify it. For an TB/Plenum I was thinking of getting the BBK Throttle Intake (Has a plenum and throttle body in one unit). It has a 78mm inlet. I'm going to be running N/A (if I supercharge it it'll be a Kenne Bell) so I'm curious if 78 is too much. If so what do you recommend?

In my opinion, there is no need for the throttle body. Get the intake and the tunner togheter. U would get like 30-40 hp with that combo. Im getting the tunner next month. Is a great upgrade for HP!!!

So you think the BBK intake will be fine coupled with a tune?

Fair enough. The throttle body is incorporated into the plenum and it's for a great price so I figured I couldn't afford not to lol. And yeah a tuner is next on mine. I'm going to get the one from American Muscle so I get the free Bama tunes for life so I can get tunes for each mod. Then when it's done I'm going to get a tune from Paul's High Performance.

78 is too big for NA. Go 70-75. It does make a difference

I have the bbk power plus 70mm and a trick flow Plenum. Works great and gives a nice little whistle when the air is flying in. And it looks a lot better than stock

A CAI does not do much for these year stangs very little if anything. I would get a 75 mm tb and a good plenum and get ur intake and tuner.

Well if you might get a kenne bell don't get the bbk 78 cause you'll have to buy a new one when you get the kb. Get the trick flow 75mm and plenum. You can reuse the tb from that combo with the kb. Also if you might stay n/a I'd probably only go with 70mm anything bigger if not helping at all

Or any individual tb that's not a plenum too like the 78mm bbk

I'll go with the 75mm/plenum combo then. Is trick flow the best option or is there others such as Accufab?

Well there's accufab and bbk but for the price you cant beat the trick flow. I just bought mine the day before American muscle got it. I really don't see how there can possibly be a difference between cheap and expensive throttle bodies, other then maybe valve thickness.

I'm gettin a kb too and when your planning on getting something like that you might as well build around that and get things so your wasting as little money as possible

Fair enough. I might not run the KB Blower for quite some time so for an N/A setup that I plan on throwing nitrous maybe I think 70mm will do fine.
