Can any owners of 11 plus V6 models of installing the BBK throttle body tell me if this mod was worth it. I am currently running a 91 Hybrid tune along with a Airraid CAI. The tune is bad a$$ killer and the throttle response is much better than stock. I do notice there is still a slight delay in acceleration when flooring the pedal. Slight delay before thrusting me back. Has anyone noticed since installing the BBK throttle body there acceleration delay is no more. When hitting the pedal the car immediately responds.

If not, any thoughts on how to get instant throttle response?

I would personally not advise purchasing the TB until you get full length headers and xpipe bro. That will waken up ur car trust me I have headers. Then that TB will work better

From what I have read on numerous mustang forums is that a TB is a waste money. I would spend your cash on something else.

The delay your feeling is the standard throttle response delay. Its there so you don't slip your rear wheels by accidentally punching on the gas real quick. It is made as more of a safety than anything.... i bet bama can adjust it in your tune but you will want to be careful, especially when it is wet out. you also have to remember that there is going to be a slight delay caused by the time it takes that surge of air you need for WOT to get from your intake, down the tube, into the TB and intake manifold. it may sound bogus but air flow is not constant or instant, there is almost always going to be a slight delay. A good example is while your in neutral smash the gas to the floor real quick and then let off. You will hear the "pop" of the TB opening all the way but you wont rev all the way up to the limiter because the TB closed somewhat before that surge of air got the the engine. A short ram intake will help and the larger TB will also but if your shooting for instant max power your going to look at other options... like NO2... and that still wont give you instant max power.

He says "If not any thoughts on how to get instant throttle response" the aluminum one piece does so, right?
Nope not really haha it's just lighter and stronger it won't help with throttle response lag. That has to do with his whole intake system. He needs a intake, headers xpipe, tune and then I would invest in a TB

On the AM website it says in the details for the driveshaft more responsive engine and quicker acceleration. The reviews on it say the same thing

A new driveshaft is definitely on the to do list of mods but that is on my low priority list right now. Perhaps the delay is the automatic transmission down shifting. Perhaps with some 3:55 gears that will also help with the delay. Headers, X pipe and gears are my top mod upgrades.

It's not really gna help that much in all honesty tho. You will see minimal gains from that besides being able to go faster
You are wrong. A aluminum/carbon driveshaft does help quite a bit with throttle response/acceleration. The aluminum/carbon driveshaft weighs quite a bit less then the stock driveshaft so you are decreasing the rotational mass of your driveshaft that your motor and trans have to turn, hence quicker acceleration. There are no "gains", just like gears, but that doesn't mean it's not a good modification for performance. You would be very happy with a new driveshaft, feels like a new car.

That's why everyone invests in 1K headers and Xpipe than $700 new driveshafts. Okay ill keep that in mind.

Everyone has different preferences...I would rather have a new driveshaft then headers all day and tomorrow. Some people just are not as informed as others...All I was saying is what you posted was incorrect and you shouldn't be spreading false information.
