confused Individual Throttle Bodies for Boss/Mod 5.4?

Just out of interest, does anyone know if individual throttle bodies (ie individual butterfly for each intake) are available/possible for Mod/Boss engines?


My List of Quintessential Performance Fords:
GT40 MkII (1966); Cosworth DFV V8 (1967); Boss 429 Mustang (1969); Escort BDA (1969); Falcon GTHO Phase III (1970); ..yawn.. (1971-1984); RS200 (1985); Sierra Cosworth RS500 (1987); Ford GT (2005)?

To run a twin TB setup would cost abit, you'd need not just two TB, but I don't know how you would get them to both work in conjunction with the drive-by-wire.

Re: Individual Throttle Bodies for Boss/Mod 5.4?

There are numurous versions of twin offset T/bodies in the states that I have seen but nothing that suit the fly by wire.
You could setup a signal splitter/amplifier that could run the second body and disregard the TPS sender on the second one.

A good electronics tech could make a circuit for you.

On the topic of this, I am designing a new manifold at the moment which should cure the problems of the current 260/290 manifold.
Sourcing some of the parts is proving a challenge at the moment but will get there.

Re: Individual Throttle Bodies for Boss/Mod 5.4?

Why couldnt you use aftermarket pedals and a cable throttle setup? A mate of mine is talking about doing this to his XR8 down the track I'll keep you posted if I find out anymore about it.

Are they FAULTS as such? Or poeple are designing/sourcing new manifolds as those are BETTER than the factory ones? Any fault's would be at Ford's discretian to fix.
