Do I have to retune it? Or should it still have the same tune on it?

So I didn't feel much of a difference..
It did accelerate smoother, and I didn't feel that little lag feeling before taking off. Not worth 400 brand new but I only paid 240 for this lol gonna be getting some ported manifolds soon, hopefully I feel that more lol

Yes, get those manifolds ported! It's the reason these TBs aren't really affecting much. I really gotta find those dyno sheets. It's on on of these forums lol

I really want to belive these BBKs do something. I honestly dont feel they do squat except "smooth" out the power? Im still going to try the GT TB thing first though.

You bastard! LOL Ive been searching high and low for part out...you lucky mofo. heh heh. Oh well. Im going to just go with Super Six. They have stock manifolds that they sell ported for $700, plus if you send your stock ones to them you will get $200 back so $500 all together.

If you can do a data log before you instal and then do one after (you'll need one for after) but just to see the increase in flow after all that while having the TB installed too that Im sure will do wonders

+1 . If you have a standard, i also highly suggest poking around with virtual dyno. Keep in mind, outputs are only as good as inputs, you'll need a flat, smooth road but this is a tool that can be used with great accuracy to track gains if used properly. It would be nice to compare the same car, on the same road, with the different mods and see where (if any) the gains are.

Hey Eric, I heard Texas World Speedway has an event this Friday where you can just go run your car. They have the timers off, but it's a good opportunity to do data logging and the virtual dyno on a good surface and legally, as much as you want. Kinda far for you from Katy, though.

I live in sugar land, and from TWS to my apartment was an hour on the dot since 99 goes all the way to 290. I'd say its worth a shot.

I went for the first time just last month when I was still in Michigan. It was awesome. I highly recommend going if you get a chance. Gets your heart pumping. I ran a 13.94 quarter mile @ 96mph, bone stock and 2.73s.

Someone just posted this on Fast Ford Muscle...gives you a good idea about TB size and effect on an engine based on its bore and stroke and desired max HP at a particular rpm
High Performance Math

our V6 is 3.76in. Bore and 3.41in. Stroke
based on this calculator the BBK is just a hair bigger than what it recommends for race use...Id still want to play around with it though...theres something Im just not getting with it all though. Soon enough we will know.

That's a good tool
The redline is 7200 on most tunes so that comes out to 80mm according to the math. So if that's the case just do the gt tb mod

Ya it's not bad. Although I was inputting 6200 rpm due to we don't really see much power past there anyway. I could have been reading it wrong though but I thought it was asking the rpm where you would want your peak hp...if that's not the case then 80mm it is!

I agree with your rpm. I have heard of people having there redline set to almost 8 and Javon power up top on there tune. Not sure if there are gains but hey anything is better than stock in alot of cases

I'm curious about that as well. I'm sure the car can handle an 8,200 rpm redline. They have Coyote guys redlining just at 8k rpm and our engines are built more for high rpm reving so i don't see why we couldn't do it and make power as well!

Took the throttle body off today and there is a definite difference without it...
Little bit of power in the mid range was missing and the power just didn't feel as "smooth" without it.
Put it back on immediately

Yeah it's a little louder with the throttle body on
Can't really explain the difference in tone but there is one

Hey grabber, when you put it on cruise control do you feel like a surge? Like if you're tapping the gas and letting go really softly?

Good! See if you can get a data log. Maybe Voltwings and Sakib can decifer what's going on in that mid range.

You may not see a power "increase" past 6200, but as long as the HP has flatlined, i'd ride it out. This way, whenever you shift, you have a better chance of falling back into that Flat HP max, instead of the "rise" at a lower rpm to get you there. Does it make sense what i'm trying to say? It would be easier to explain if looking at a dyno graph, but i fully support a 7500 rpm shift point on this car if you have the flow mods for it.

Yeah that makes total sense. The drop in rpms and put the car into a lower power range and not maximum power which is where you want to be. flat lined power over 1000 rpms would be sweet and would keep from dropping our of max power
