BBK 78mm Throttle Intake?

is it worth it ? i have the bbk intake already and im getting a tuner in March. so will this be worth it? will i gain good torque ? and does it make the exhaust sound any louder or no?

Go with a 70mm. I don't think it will make it louder but it will get you better air flow

AM has a video on these. I was going to do the 78 but I believe it said that unless u are making alot of horse power there is no need to do 78 an 70 would be sufficient.

Yup, 70mm is more than enough for NA engines. Bigger ones are for if you're FI

Also you can look at the accufab 70mm throttle body and plenum combo , trickflow, and I do believe bbk makes a 70mm set up its just not a one piece combo like the 78mm

Yeah. My car is just CAI, off road H and Flowmasters right now. I'm getting the throttle intake for mine and a BBK CAI for the wife's 05 v6. I'm betting her car will see the bigger gain, but it'll make for a fun hour or two of bolting on and test driving.

Well do you ever plan on going FI? I do eventually. I mean does the 78mm produce substantially less HP on a NA motor vs the 70mm? If your plan is to go big one day might as well in my eyes, plus it is a good looking piece of hardware in my opinion.

I dunno. I'm planning on purchasing an SVT Lightning by the end of the year so I think my GT will live as my reasonable MPG fun machine. I just figured with the price point being zippo, it's worth snatching up and seeing if I can get a bump in throttle response or something.

I do have a tune though.

On allford mustangs, there's dyno results showing 75 gives a couple more HP than 70mm. Both were n/a. But I'm not telling u what to buy. They have results from 3 or 4 different kinds. Check it out.

IMO as long as your not changing out your MAF (which is really what will increase the amount of air) the 78mm would be just fine. Sure a 70mm or a 75mm is fine too & I'm sure the HP is quite negligible between the 3 setups. I'd prefer to buy one in hope that one day I'll have a FI setup thus why I think you might as well just go big and get the 78mm. For the price of the TB/Plenum setup its worth it to me. Just my 2 cents.

+1 ^

Get the bbk people on this forum commented on my throttle response from a video I posted here.

I love my bbk and apparently so do others.

A nice bonus is the sweet whistle it gives off.

Okay so I got my freebie intake today, but didn't get the hardware with it. Just gonna yank off the stock piece and see if it's reusable for the BBK.

Okay... so I was able find a PCV fitting for the BBK, and the bolts and whatnot from the stocker work, but it needs a bushing for the slot that connects to the TPS. Car was staying at high revs with the BBK on. So back to the stocker and ill be sending an email to see if I can land that bushing.

Well it's in and i'm quite satisfied. Throttle response is much better, I feel no loss of low end grunt, and pull at 3k+ is improved. Worth $270, maybe. Get a used one for cheap or in my case, land one for free and its good stuff.
