Get a rubber head hammer and PPP it in there if you don't give a crap. Lol it looks like it's a little cock-eye. Straighten it up and see if it slides in better. If not hammer it in.

You might have to drill it out before you can fit that in there. I've heard of other brands doing the same where you have to drill out the slot the little pin slides into.

No don't drill anything. Just stop you need a mechanic if you can't do it right.

It's very simple. Cable fits in the Chanel and the pin pops in the hole.

And also if you want cruise control I'd pop the black plastic over the mob on the throttle body.

You don't have to take it to a mechanic. I just did mine last week. All you do is drill the hole to fit the cable end. Actually a dremel works much better.

Lol. ^ Don't listen to him that is bad advice. You don't need to drill anything. It's tight for a reason. Tap it in with a rubber head hammer and your good. SR designed it to fit our cars in every way and it does just fine.

SR 75 mm throttle body help

I actually measured it with a micrometer. There's absolutely no way it'll fit unless you make it. Sorry about the "bad advice"

Also hammering it in is such a better alternative to making it fit! I always love hammering things in to make it fit. Especially on a new aluminum part.

All it takes is a little tap and thats it, not a hard hit at all. I know because mine was hard to get in also, so I got a hammer and carefully tapped it in. Besides SR isn't going to make something that doesn't fit.

Alright let's see if this helps. The throttle cable loops underneath and through that channel and comes back around to fit through the hole

Speed mister, I wasn't giving bad advice. I read up before my purchase of the same throttle body of others having to either hammer it in or dremel it out. I chose to mic it out see what the difference was and dremel out the material. I wasn't going to take a hammer, be it a rubber hammer or metal hammer and pound it in. I simply didn't want to take the chance of messing up the throttle body shaft and making it stick. Mine only needed a slight amount removed and it fit tightly but perfectly. I was just voicing my experience with the exact same product.

I read this same thing about the SR ones. Why didn't they just make it right?

The only thing SR seems to make right is there lowering springs. I had a SR CAI once, what a piece of junk. Also there CC plates are terrible. The throttle body is decent once you get it customized to fit your throttle cable.

I have no idea why they don't make it fit the cable. But I do know that I'm not going to pay $100 more for a product that does the same exact thing. I feel that all 70mm TBs and 75mm tbs are made exactly the same. They do they same thing and the only thing you're paying for is a name. The fit and finish on my SR TB is great minus the minor fitting I had to do. I also installed the C&L plenum to get rid of the choke on the upper manifold. I can tell the difference in the way the car accelerated immediately.

That's great that you are having good results with it. Between brands some of the higher end ones like trickflow or accufab are proven to flow a little better,how much better I can't remember. I was going to go with the SR throttle body and Plenum but for the little more it costs I think I will get the trickflow unit when I finally spring for a new one.

I didn't get the SR. Plenum just the throttle body. The C&L plenum flows exceptionally better than those and nearly as good as the trick flow and accufab.

So has anyone frayed their throttle cable by hammering it in the wrong way yet?

Dunno but I know that I'd definitely want to purchase a product even after learning that it had fitment issues previous to buying it... If they can't even get the sizes for cable attachments right, who knows what else is boogered up quality wise? The only thing I would buy from SR is their springs. Maybe...

I've said it before and I'll say it again, SR is a cheap Chinese rip off copypasta company. Big problem in any aftermarket is there are TON of companies like this... If you are buying a throttle body/plenum, get the Trick Flow setup from Summit Racing for $279 shipped. Apparently the Summit no-name one is just a blank TFS setup as well but I have not confirmed this personally. The TFS stuff is USA made, dyno proven, top notch quality, everything fits perfectly without needing to take a hammer to it right out of the box etc...

i just put my bbk 75mm throttle body back on yesterday. needed some deep cleaning which is why i pulled it before. The hole for the throttle cable on that one is a tight fit, but just takes a couple taps with a wrench to get it in, since the positioning makes it hard for fingers.

Like I said the TFS unit fits like OEM. BBK is another company I am not a big fan of. They are a step up from the copypasta companies but a lot of their stuff is a bit suspect. Only thing they make that I've found is any good are their pullies and mid pipes and some of their headers.
