Throttle Body

I had a 80cm throttle body fitted by the dealership - someone just told me that would void the warranty. Dealer told me thats not the case but I don't have it in writing. Anyone out there have any views. Thanks

Re: Throttle Body

it shouldnt be a problem, if the rest of your mods are covered, i'd think that a factory standard throttle body would be fine.

i am get a few things fitted at my dealer pre delivery ss cai, spacer, short shifter as my dealer is a Herrod dealer and he said all Herrods products are Ford approved and will not affect my warranty. Maybe some non Herrod Ford places will react differenty.

I haven't had much time this week to drive it and it came to me with the throttle body, air mods and Herrods exhaust so not sure what it was like standard. I can only compare with a standard Mk1 driven a few weeks ago and would say that response and acceleration is greatly enhanced.
I will get it Dyno tested soon and see how it comes up

Re: Throttle Body

Sounds good mate. Just about to dyno mine while she's still stock and then do some mods and I'll have a good comparison to see how well the work has done.

Better acceleration, yeah thats the stuff!
