Re: Throttle body

I would use Accufab if it was easy to get, going by all the US guys they seem to be the best available. I run an edelbrock TB, (same as the BBK, they actually come with both logos on them) and It seems good, the earlier BBK/edelbrock TB's had some problems so they have a bad name now but the newer ones are fine IMO.

Re: Throttle body

i've got an edelbrock tb aswell, no probs with them, just one tip make sure that the butterfly goes through the shaft and not just bolted to the side of it.

Re: Throttle body

I have the BBK 70mm TB on mine - the new ones are very good compared to the old BBK?Edelbrock ones. Far better than any Ford offering...But you still need to reposition the throttle linkage ball.

2. If you throw it up in the air and it comes down - It's too heavy...

Squeezed is nice, stroked is good, blown is unbeliveable - but all 3 is heaven

Re: Throttle body

The bbk ones whistled.I don't think performance wise there is any difference...Yes the U.S cars where inlet faced to right and throttle cable came in from different side...Why pivot point is different...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: Throttle body

is this 'whistling' a common problem???

Anyone else experienced this... my fms one does it.... only at a particular throttle position though.....

Doesn't sound bad...... but is a bit annoying sometimes
