Throttle body too big?

I ordered a BBK throttle body/plenum combo.. There were a few options on size but I read that the 78mm was more for applications with power adders. So I went with 73mm.. For only 150$ Which is bigger than stock and since it's all one piece I figured it was definitely an improvement.. Was this a good buy?

Also my mods are: steeda cai, steeda underdrive pullies, steeda tri-ax short throw, stage 3 comp cams, new valve springs, findanza adjustable cam gears, full msd ignition, 24lb injectors, dyno tune, longtubes, off road H pipe, cats delete, egr delete, and full suspension(anti roll, panhard, subframe, coilovers, lowered.)

not bad. I have a bbk 75mm throttle body, but it kinda seems cheaply made. Idk how many miles it was used before i got it. But i gave it a good cleaning and it does the job. should notice some more throttle response though with the new parts. nothing major of course, thats just the nature of it. and you are right about the size and power adders. 75 and up is generally for using with a power adder. but i guess 75 you can get away with NA.

and im honestly surprised that you went for cam work before the throttle body and plenum. usually thats the first step a lot of people go. so you may get more noticeable change in power since you have the other mods. just may need another tune.

your setup sounds like fun though.

It's fun tuned and dyno'd at hopefully the intake will give me a 10hp bump that'll put me in the 320-330 range, I ran a 8.2 1/8 which isn't as fast at my 96 f150 but the mustang is my daily and is certainly very fun to drive.. Not really any other bolt ons I can do that aren't major like heads or a whole lower intake.. I'm looking at a f1 procharger next spring and beefing up the bottom end/internals.. But any other mods I'm missing like smaller bolt ons... I can't think of anything but yall know more then me
