Re: Throttle bodies

Depends on other mods but 70mm seems around max unless other heavy breathing is required,...

Re: Throttle bodies

65mm will be plenty for the moment. ED XR8 has said they are good up till ~260kw.

Re: Throttle bodies

Just FYI, your 65mm throtle body flows 616cfm = 300kw. I wouldn't worry about upgrading to 70mm, you will gain nothing from it. This was backed up by Herrod Motorsport when I asked this question about a year ago along with most people on the mustang forums.
