BBK throttle body

Would it be worth it to switch out my stock throttle body with an aftermarket throttle from bbk and also what kind of gains would i see from this

Take it from someone who has added a BBK TB to their v6 - different platform but same principal.

The TB will help if you pair it up with a CAI, Headers, and a tune. If all you have is a CAI, get a tune first.

You'll enjoy that tune, I'd say for the money of the TB get a under drive pulley from

Rpmoutlet.com

You'll feel the difference more then the TB

On the 4.0 the BBK has been a problem. People who have installed it tend to have issues with it, and no performance gain either.

Yeah the TB I have does okay, for the price it really wasn't worth it. With out a tune, check engine light came on. I can't remember what it was fully, it had to do with the mixture. It will add on at best 5 hp with a tune. But the price isn't worth it and it can be a problem to tune. Since I have installed it, I haven't had the money to buy a stock TB. I am guessing it will probably cost like $400 to replace the bbk. I haven't seen it as being to much of a problem. With my modifications, I still get 30-32 mpg on the highway.
