T/b and plenum combo question

I'm goin to buy a 75mm t/b but I'm not sure what t/b n plenum combo work well together, but not over expensive. Any suggestions?

This may be a stupid question but do you have to buy a new piece to connect the intake tube to the larger throttle body?

From what I've read the 78mm is to big for n/a to get the most gains. I just bought the 78mm haven't installed it yet but I'm boosted

So it will fit, huh I would have through since it hardly slides over the stock one it would be too small for a bigger one. I'm pry going to go with the BBK or 75mm since I plan to put a 5.4L in sometime.

When I was still n/a I ran a Professional Products 75mm T body and plenum. The only thing I didn't like about the T body was where the throttle cable hooks into the linkage was to tight causing the pedal to feel choppy. I just took a small file and cleaned up where the cable hooks in and it's worked fine ever since.

From what I'm told Accufab is a good brand. I don't know personally but a friend of mine has one on his 03 mach and likes it.

I laugh at all these people that say 78 is too big when none of these people have done it and experienced it for themselves.

Lots of bad info here no doubt from folks that have not even experienced what they recommend.

Same people who recommend something they have never done.

Told everyone the 78 is the whip stock or not.

Super glad you like it and it's working as advertised.

It's not "too big" it's just the motor can only suck in so much air....so it's sorta "wasted space" per say. Wether it's 75 or 78 they will both suck in the same air flow, but when air is forced through it the 78 is better

Awesome that I was accurate about that for you.

The 78 is a great price too especially with our AM discount.

I loved that it was totally plug and play.

Takes like 30 to install.

Simple.
