Swapped my throttle body last week, the new one came from a 2001 3.0 Escape. Here's are some pics of the process.
Difference in size from original:
Intake JB welded and bored out to match new TB:
Filled these small gaps with more JB weld to seal IAC port from TB to upper:
Top lip of TB grinded down for IAC clearence:
Basically a bolt on with a few small modifications:
Had to make this small L-shaped piece of metal to attach the new TB to the bracket that holds the throttle cable and cruise control cable:
Found this intake adapter at a parts store and had to join it to my stock intake tube with a piece of 2.5" pipe, works fine for now but I'm going to swap my tube later on:
Whole view of the new setup(I know my engine is filthy):
Hope you all enjoyed the photos. It wasnt a very hard mod at all with a little time and patience and I did notice a nice sound increase and some throttle response.
