Get some sort of heat shield and secure it between the two.

Is it not perfectly square? Just rotate it? That sensor is very important and your car will get very temperamental (and may not run) if its damaged or skewed.

I bought some rubber epoxy that is heat resistant to up to 500 degrees and I'll use it to separate the two

Just leave the throttle body off and use a hair net.

How's the epoxy holding up? I got ahold of one (TB) and looking to install as well. I am intrigued about Voltwings' suggestion to rotate it.

It's good dude. I've checked to see if the sensor is hot or the epoxy and their both good. The epoxy doesn't transfer heat so no problems

Has anyone actually dyno'd there car after installing this? I think an 80mm tb is way to big for a NA V6.. and could possibly hurt performance.

Everyone who's done this mod says otherwise. They say the throttle response is much better over stock

Yea someone did. Somewhere on the forums he even showed a dyno sheet.. It adds about or more performance than the 73mm by BBK and it's cheaper by far so I think it's a good investment. I can surely feel the difference on my car.

well yeah, but with no data to back it, it's irrelevent.. if i had "modded" my car i would like to think the mod added some performance.

I'm sure it will. But it's not a straight bolt on thing. You have to customize it in order for it to fit.

You have to get the holes with the bolts re drilled in order to align to your manifold and then you have to cut the fins inside your manifold to have clearance for wide open throttle.

Its too big for a NA car, people actually lost power switching to the 80mm GT throttle body from stock.

For the price of a bbk 73 mm I rather get a cheaper and bigger 80mm 5.0 tb which I did.

Go do a dyno run of it and it will show you losing power compared to the stock or the 73mm.
It's all the placebo effect, you're not gonna feel a difference

There's a reason bbk went with 73 and not 80. 80 is too big for NA set ups.

I already mentioned this once, just remove the throttle body and intake and your engine will get all the air it needs. And for free!

I saw proof before I ever got mine, that someone posted a pic of a dyno he had done and it increased hp by 5 compared to the stock. So idk how it would be losing power. Everyone should just go for whatever they think is best. Anything rather than stock is better

That's not true at all. A lot of things are not better than stock. I would rather have my stock airbox than a cheap eBay intake. I would rather have stock springs then cheap-o springs or coils. I could name a million things.
Can you post the dyno pic? I'm curious to see it.

I think as long as the engine is tuned to properly utilize the airflow, there shouldnt be any problems. But with that being said, I would only do that if you also had a better exhaust setup then stock to help get the air out.

Unless I'm mistaken he's not tuned for the 80mm tb, so it's not doing anything, his car thinks 67mm is going in.
Only gains you are gonna see on a NA build is in combo with ported intake manifolds, cai like a steeda, headers, etc

If you look for the 5.0 TB Threads you'll find the pic. Like I said I felt a difference but everyone will always have there likes and dislikes about something. And who said you would end up getting cheap parts to replace stock! I rather have roush lower springs than the cheap stock ones. I rather have a bbk cai then the air restrictive airbox..everyone has a choice

I'm not gonna search through countless pages of threads to back up your claims haha, its not that big of a deal.
You're not tuned for it, your car still thinks it's 67mm, its literally doing nothing positive for your car. If you really wanna find out, dyno it yourself, relying on butt dynos does not work. Facts are facts, I cant debate it if you have no basis for your claims and don't plan on ever dynoing it. Again, no hard feelings at all, its a discussion, but it's not helpin ya.

Without a tune, you would feel an increase in the acceleration due to soo much air rushing in. Other then that, it probably just moved your powerband more to the low to mid range but no "actual gains". A tune will fix that for you. But you will have to datalog it cuz most companies wont have a config for it on a v6 right off the bat.
