Throttle bodies

Hello everyone. I m looking to install a 70 millameter throttle body for my gt, I was thinking bbk but I wanna see what you guys recommend and which brand is good, it has a bbk cold air intake and a flowmaster catback.

There's very little that a manufacturer can screw up on a throttle body, I would suggest going with visual appeal/cost...I have the 70mm BBK throttle body and love the look and the throttle response. I've heard of people hating on BBK, but I don't really know why. I had a BBK CAI when I bought the car and got the throttle body and they seem to do good (I mean it's not like they are real power-adders, they just look pretty, help slightly with fuel economy, improve throttle response and give you that "air-flow" sound).

I would upgrade the intake plenum before the throttlebody. The plenum is the choke point in the intake system on these cars. As far as brands I would go Trick Flow or Accufab

A cold air intake is pointless, the factory throttle body sucks and if you have a pi intake then keep that, if not I would upgrade to that before a throttle body. But don't waste your money on a "pretty" cold air intake.. Hell if you wanna wake the car up and get the best bang for your buck get some gears for the rear end, you'll have a completely different car with 4.10's


04 GT: CAI, 3.73, Longtubes, Full exhaust, Comp Cams 270's, Short throw, Pullies, BBK 73mm TB, MSD coils, 47lb injectors, MPT tuned, Steeda lowering springs, Front strut bar, MM caster camber plates and the list goes on.

Look at summit, they have a great price on a really good TB/Plenum, I beleive its made by Trickflow for them. Go this route and just leave your stock air intake on if its in good shape. If all cleaned up they look decent. I do agree that the aftermarket CAIs do look good under the hood but their not worth it unless you need some bling for shows or something. If you decide to get a CAI, go with the JLT, it seems to be the best out there from what I have seen. And you do already have the PI intake if its the 99 in your profile. Unless someone has changed it out at some point with a Dorman or something, then yes, change it to a FRPP PI intake and you will gain back a few ponies. The Dorman doesnt flow as well, and Ive even heard folks complain about it sounding funny and feeling a little rough throttle/engine wise.

Throttle bodies

Skip the 70mm and go to a 75. I did a 70 at first and when I got my JLT CAI I ended up installing a 75 MM summit racing TB. Summit racing brand is made by trick flow. It's a good price point and works.
Just get the 75mm TB and plenum combo. Save yourself time and money doing it all at once.

2003 GT: JLT CAI, summit 75mm TB, C&L plenum, 24# injectors, Mac Prochamber, SLP LM1 cat back, 3.73 Gears, FR500 Diff, FR500 diff cover, Jmod trans and shift kit, Max Motorsports subframes, Koni oranges front and rear, DBA discs front and rear, shrader performance rear seat delete, APSX D2 wideband, MPT happy customer.

Sounds like a great plan. Just like Cliffy said: TB/Plenum (no need for CAI the stock one is a good design if not better than aftermarket ones), cat back exhaust, mid pipe, gears (I like 410), 24lb injectors, tune. And thats about it that will be beneficial for these cars. You can add LT headers and get another 5 hp but its a huge cost, things like UDP but thats varying if they really do anything.

That one except the 75mm TB, not the 70mm. The 70mm is completely pointless, the opening to the plenum is 75mm anyway so do a 75mm TB for a nice smooth tube. You can save like $20 if you buy the TFS plenum separately for $100 and then the Summit TB for $159 or whatever it is going for these days. The Summit TB is the Trick flow one, just de-branded. Summit owns Trick Flow.

As for Cali legal... no idea. Modding anything in that state sucks cock. If I lived in that state I wouldn't even mess with anything but a classic if I wanted to go fast.

Yes they do. Go buy a cheap DD Honda or something that has good maintenance records. Will last forever, get great mileage and you just drive it.

Honda's are cheap and reliable, so can performance parts...as long as you don't go the ebay unbranded route. There's very little you can do to screw up a throttle body, so the cheap ones work out fine...especially for a N/A 4.6

Throttle bodies

Some people only like cars from a certain brand or from a certain country. They're funny like that. Leaves more for us.

Bonless skinless chicken breast, wrapped in a peice of bacon, nice bbq rub, smoked with apple wood and a touch of hickory chips, cooked at 265 for 2.5-3 hrs!!! Its the best! And Ive had a Honda and recently traded in my Kia Optima and I can say unfortunately that they were some of the best cars I have owned. Even better I didnt lose a dime on them, retained their value at least in my case.

Like Recon said most of love cars, and cars of all shapes, sizes, makes, and models. We are a melting pot of cars!
