I don't think it will work, But most of the time you loose power with a throttle body, unless you got some bigger mods..Cam,supercharger, etc.

your stock throttle body flows enough for your stock engine. When you upgrade cam, heads and intakes or add a blower or nitrous you will see a advantage of the bigger tb... but you could actually lose hp buy going with a larger tb on a stock 3.8 engine

your 60mm flows sufficient enough. Like Brent said, when you have more mods (mainly forced induction) is when you need to upgrade your throttle body.

What part of Texas are you in? If you're anywhere near DFW I would be glad to help you with your car. I have a decent understanding of the 3.8L v6 mustang engine :D

I'm currently stationed at Ft Hood in Killeen(Yeah it's the town that some guy turned the Luby's into a drive thru massacre :ar15: then off'd himself in the crapper)but I'm from Dallas.It would be great to have some help on future projects and such,granted deployment don't roll back around too soon!
Ah well first deployment supplied household furnishings,the next one will hopefully get me some padding on a few mod's on ma Pony!(Gotta LOVE Hazard Fire Pay!!) I appreciate the input from everyone.Anything else to add,please do!

Thanks again!

back on topic, but anyway, you might have problems with the bolt holes lining up, after that, the throttle cable 'switch' might not be in the exact right place for a v-6.... other than that, you might have computer compatibility problems... but kinda unlikely. Those should be about it. You can get hoses that you can crimp down to seal that thing up.

Some fact...

The 99-up GT TB (65mm) will bolt up to any 99-up V6 (60mm). You will need to trim the upper intake opening slightly due the GT's 65mm TB needing a little more clearance. It can be done with a Dremel.

The linkage will work fine if its a 01-up V6. 99-00s will need to change the throttle cable to the 01-up style. The cable costs about $20 from Ford.

You will also need a GT IAC, some block-off plates for the intake and IAC mounting and to run a piece of hose into your CAI for the IAC.

Power... It does help with response but you really don't gain any power until you go blower, turbo etc...

OK, let me get this straight. You CAN use a GT IAC on a V6 with no problem? And it just a simple matter of running a hose to it?
