The 3.0 Duratec Tb out of an Escape works. Bolts up with minor modification. There is a how-to somewhere. If I can find it I'll post the link. It is 60mm btw. IIRC our 3.0 is 52mm.

In my experience the Escape throttle body costs more than its Mazda counterpart. I picked up a Tribune (or Tribute I can't remember) for like $35. I may install it one day if I stop being lazy.

EDIT: This should help http://www.cardomain.com/ride/333436...lar-cab/page-4

i have a 99 before the composite manifolds.
i know i read about the 3.0 duratecs do work and that the 56mm bbk tb also works.
why i ask about the mustang is becuase the model number for the 56mm bbk for the mustang is the same for a ford ranger so im wondering if the stock mustang one will fit. they look alot alike.
i did look for some escape/tribute tb on ebay but they look wayy different from mine-they have hose connections to them.

so from what im reading, what it comes down to, is i have to change my upper intake to a composite style in order to enlarge my throttle body. theres no options for the aluminum intake.
