Keep your stock one. And this really isn't tech related.

?? I guess we need a definition of "tech related" Asking a TECHNICAL question about the mechanics of a install would seeeeeeeeem to be a tech question. LOL

We did a Boss IM install. With the intake, I was offered a BBK 90mm throttle body at a great price. We installed them together and I have heard all the hype about loss of tourque yada yada yada about the Boss Intake. I call BS.
Installing the Boss Intake along with the 90mm TB and you will notice a HUGE difference in performance from the stock intake and stock TB. I can't compare the Boss Intake without the 90mm TB but imho we would do the same setup again if we had it to do over because it performs better than expected. MPT did the tuning and it has been spot on with the tune. I heard so much BS prior to doing what we did, I was questioning if what we were doing was worth it. I am glad I followed my instincts and not listening to all the chatter and disinformation.

Is there ANYTHING you have to say besides writing this on every misposted thread?

I agree that asking best paint colors or which axle back is the best could clutter the forum, but it does seem that there still are obvious threads that are left alone in this forum when they clearly are not a tech question while others get struck down by the the tech nazi. As in soup nazi. NO POST FOR YOU!
I disagree that asking how a part performs is technical. Now how to install that part is a different story. You will admit though there are far too many threads started in this section that are not even remotely close to being technical.

bbk 90mm throtle body

There is a clear definition as to what a "Tech" post is ind the stickies IN THIS FORUM. Opinions are opinions. But it's really annoying when everybody says "this isn't tech" "doesn't anybody read anymore" yada yada yada. Either help with the answer or don't jeez.


P.s. Sorry I couldn't help op

GE3G,

The 85 or 90mm BBK TB's are a nice upgrade with the Boss intake manifold. If you want to optimize the higher RPM power, I definitely suggest changing the TB. Another option would be porting the factory TB. If it were me, I'd go with the 85mm BBK TB, as it's more flush with the Boss intake opening.

Hope this helps!

Shane

The throttle bodys have been proven pretty much worthless on NA applications. They are alot better suited for boosted applications. Plus the boss intake opening in roughly 83mm.

I would question "proven"
Throttle responsiveness is a significant improvement and though the diameter may not be a factor, the responsiveness is most definitely improved with the aftermarket TB. I wouldn't say worthless is accurate.

Worthless may be a little strong but it's certainly not worthwhile. Especially for what they cost.

The fastest 5.0's are using the stock throttle body with the boss intake for a REASON. coffeeman's record setting 8.9 and 150+ is all with stock throttle body. As is there twin turbo 5.0 still stock throttle body. And so is larrys record setting on3 twin turbo coyote stock throttle body. There is a reason for this,

See GE3G......I read ALL the same stuff you are now reading when I was in your exact position, scratching my head as you probably are too.

LOL Good luck man. We are running a BBK 90mm Throttle body and love it with the Boss Intake.

Nothing really against AM, but in all the years dealing with mustangs, I have bought one thing from them, a clutch line, so if that somehow makes me a bama lover, uh. o.k. Never have run a tune from them either so.......

Hey everyone I really appreciate the help and info.. im still debating on the tb. I just bought a boss manifold so I was just thinking if pairing it with a tb is worth it. My mustang shop where in toronto told me its not really worth it and hes running a accufab on his but. But will see when the weather warms up and I get my stang ready for the 50th aniversary party in North Carolina in April

CFM= CID x RPM x Vol eff / 3464 or about 610 cfm @7000 rpm. Your 5.0 2011-2012 84.5 mm flows 1183 cfm per the Accufab web site.
